Interlaken is a traditional Swiss resort town in the beautiful Bernese Oberland region. It’s situated in a narrow valley between the sparkling emerald waters of Lake Brienz and Lake Thun.

You’ll find chic lakeside resorts in Interlaken and lots of things to do. Visitors can enjoy boat tours on the lake, funicular rides to the surrounding mountains, and hiking through dense forests and alpine meadows.

But the main advantage for travelers is Interlaken’s location. As a hub for Switzerland’s central region, and with two main rail stations, Interlaken is the perfect place as a base for seeing other parts of the country.

For even more convenience, Interlaken has a variety of accommodations within walking distance of the Ost (East) Train Station and the West Train Station. Both stations have excellent connections and nearby hotels, but there are a few differences. (More about that later.)

Here’s a sampling of what you can expect from Interlaken hotels near the train stations.
