INTERLAKEN - HOTEL ZONES
The hotels located in the heart of the Interlaken city offer unique mountain and lake landscape that is absolutely breathtaking. The city center hotels are generally within walking distance from the rail station Interlaken Ost or Interlaken West. These stations are the starting points for all attractions, including the Jungfraujoch, Schilthorn and many more. Staying in the center of town will save you additional travel time that will be better spent on sightseeing.
The town of Interlaken is a strategic base town for anyone who is wishing to see a lot of the Bernese Oberland. It is surrounded by the Alps, but it is not actually in the mountains. The town is situated in between two beautiful lakes. The street connecting both stations is the main shopping street. Interlaken has two rail stations; the Ost is the main one. These stations offer frequent train, bus and boat services to all attractions.
The outskirt hotels are typically within a 15 minute train or bus ride. Double check the location of any of the outskirt hotels, some are just a short walk away to the city and will be near bus stops. Staying in the outskirts can be a good way to get the most out of a limited budget, provided your plans are a bit flexible. Just make sure you have good public transportation connections close to the hotel so you can still get around easily.
