Located right in the heart of the Swiss Alps’ Jungfrau region, Interlaken is a breath-taking resort town set between two magnificent glacial lakes. It’s also one of the world’s best destinations for adventure, romance – or a bit of both! But before you start packing, it’s time to get planning. Take a look at this information on how to reach Interlaken to help you get started. Coming from abroad, the fastest way for you to reach Interlaken is by flight. Although the town doesn’t have its own airport, the nearby Bern Airport is about 45 minutes away by road or twice that by train. Either way, that last bit of your journey will be alongside spectacular views. Otherwise, you could also fly into Zurich Airport, which is 2 hours away but one of the most well-connected airports on the continent. All major international carriers would have a route up to or passing by Zurich, so a suitable one can be picked according to your budget.
There are two train stations in Interlaken – West and East. You’d most likely arrive into the former, as it’s the one more well-connected. Swiss rail journeys are an experience unto themselves, especially this one, winding deep into the panoramic Alpine scenery that you’d once only imagined. Surely just knowing more about this journey has got you excited about taking it as soon as you can! Thankfully, SOTC has everything you need to make it happen.
