INTERLAKEN - GETTING AROUND

On Foot

The town center is quite compact and can easily be explored on foot. The main shopping street connects the rail station Interlaken West to the rail station Interlaken Ost. They are 20 minutes apart on foot. Interlaken Ost is the main station, but if your hotel is within walking distance of either station, you`re guaranteed to have quick and easy access to all modes of transport.

By Taxi

Taxis are available from both train station and most hotels. Tipping is expected in all taxis.

By Train

There are direct trains to many towns around Switzerland, including Bern. The local trains take you into the mountains, and to attractions like the Jungfraujoch and the Schilthorn.

There is also a train that connects Interlaken Ost and West.

By Boat

Boats to Lake Brienz depart near the Interlaken Ost station. Boats to Lake Thun depart from Interlaken West.

By Bus

There are buses to all villages around Interlaken, and those buses also connect the Interlaken Ost and West station.

Free Traveling

Hotels will provide a free Visitor`s Card to their guests, which allows free traveling by all modes of transport in the immediate surroundings of the town. (This applies to a small area.) A rail pass is the best way to cover transportation into the mountains and towns farther away. Most rail passes allow free traveling across the entire Bernese Oberland.
