Escorted Rail Tours to Interlaken

The capital of the Bernese Oberland

The stunning Bernese Oberland is one of the most beautiful regions in the Swiss Alps. The scenery encompasses everything you would expect to see in Switzerland - snow-capped mountain peaks, fresh mountain air, rolling hillsides, jagged rocks and awesome glaciers. The entire region provides a year-round playground for walkers, climbers, hikers and skiers, combining towering mountains with picturesque lakes and endless forests. Set in the heart of the Bernese Oberland is the captivating capital of the region - Interlaken. The charming city is wedged between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz and is surrounded by the majestic triple peaks of the Jungfrau, the Eiger and the Mönch mountains.

Interlaken is an excellent starting point for adventures into the Bernese Oberland and provides an excellent 'base camp' for a comprehensive exploration of the surrounding Alps - over 45 mountain railways, cable cars, chair lifts and ski lifts lead to 200 kilometres of groomed ski pistes and a dense network of hiking trails. Excursion ships, including historic paddle steamers, ply the waters of Lake Thun and Lake Brienz.

Murren
The pretty, traffic free village of Mürren can be reached via Lauterbrunnen. From Mürren, the highly recommended Schilthorn cable car climbs to the awe-inspiring Piz Gloria revolving summit restaurant, made famous in the James Bond film "On Her Majesty's Secret Service". A journey to the "Top of Europe" is possible from Interlaken.
