Day 4 Interlaken

Day Trip to Jungfraujoch
Today after an early breakfast you walk to the railway station to begin an exciting train journey to Jungfraujoch, the highest railway station in Europe.

As you make your way to the 'Top of Europe' you experience riding several trains with panoramic windows to view the most of the incredible Alpine area. Your first destination is Grindelwald, where you change trains and depart to Kleine Scheidegg. This section offers the stunning view of Eigerwand (Eiger Wall), one of the Great north faces of the Alps. The last Kleine Scheidegg - Jungfraujoch cogwheel train partly passes through the tunnel, which was built right across the Eiger rocks at an altitude of 3000 m (9,843 ft).

Jungfraujoch is the high-Alpine wonderland of eternal snow and ice*. All this beauty could be marveled at from one of the observation decks located both inside and outside of a 3-storey observatory building.

  • Please, note: It is important to wear something warm and wind/rain protective when going to Jungfraujoch. The temperature there is usually lower than in the cities even in summer. In case you feel too cold you can always go inside the restaurants which are close to the observation deck.

You can take an interesting walk through the Ice Cave where everything around you is made from ice. The area includes several restaurants, cafés, and shops as well as places for snow activities to satisfy any taste.

For the ride back you travel first to Kleine Scheidegg and then take a new route: to Interlaken via Lauterbrunnen. This way you see the stunning alpine area from a new perspective. You then return to the hotel and have the rest of the day free.

Exploring Lake Brienz & Lake Thun Area
After breakfast, you meet your private guide at the hotel lobby and embark on a fascinating day-tour along the shores of beautiful Brienz and Thun Lakes to discover several of the most remarkable sights of Canton of Bern.

  • Please, note: The boat cruise on Lake Brienz is not available from November to March because the water level is not high enough. The longer cruise on lake Thun during the wintertime could be offered instead.

At first, you head for the station from where you start your breathtaking cruise on Lake Brienz. After about an hour of boating on the crystal clear lake you reach your first destination for today - Giessbach Falls. The magical waterfall tumbles 500 m (1,640 ft) in height over several tiers. After enjoying the view of the Falls and nature around, you take a short boat ride and arrive at Iseltwald, a typical Swiss village located at lake Brienz. Iseltwald is nominated to be the most beautiful village in Switzerland. Here you have some time for lunch before the public bus takes you to the Weissenau Ruins located on Thun lake (the duration of the bus ride is about 30 min). Your professional guide tells you the history and legends of this place before you continue your tour through the nature reserve.

You then stop and have some rest on the terrace of a restaurant located on the bank of the Thun lakeshore. Here you enjoy the wonderful view of incredible mountains and an exciting lake of light blue color.

On your way back you take a public bus, and in about 15 minutes you reach Interlaken and return to the hotel. The rest of the evening is free.
