Where To Park in Interlaken (The Best Options)

Victoria Jungfrau Grandhotel Interlaken

Maybe you are going to Interlaken to discover one of Switzerland’s most beautiful areas and you are wondering where to park in town.

Even though Interlaken is the main transport hub to big attractions like Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen, parking can be a bit of a challenge. Switzerland doesn’t have free parking on the road like in many other countries, so you will have to park your vehicle in one of the dedicated parking garages. During the holidays car parks do fill up quickly, so I recommend arriving early.

Most car parks have electronic signs, telling you how many free spaces there are left.

  • If it‘s full – the sign says “Besetzt“
  • If it’s not full – it will be either “Frei” or have a number on it

Below I have listed the biggest and most central ones. Please note that there are a lot of smaller ones, where you can also try your luck.

Free Parking In Interlaken

As mentioned before, free parking is almost non-existent in Switzerland. I did read about possible free parking between the Interlaken Golf course and the restaurant Neuhaus, but I haven‘t been able to verify this information, so I don‘t know if this is still the case. Given the golf course is out of town, it would also take you 45 mins on foot to get into the center of town.

Other Interlaken Parking Options

There are a lot of other parking options in Interlaken. Some are smaller than others and maybe not so convenient to get to. If you have a bigger car, make sure not to get stuck in one of the many narrow streets. And there are a lot of one-way streets, so just watch the signs.
