A September 2005 trip
to Interlaken by Joy S
Quote: Interlaken, set in the heart of the Bernese Oberland between Lakes Thun and Brienz, is a beautiful place to spend a week. High peaks, sheer valleys, cool lakes: this is the ideal base for touring the mountain ranges and sights of the Alpine heart of Switzerland.
1. Find the local tourist television channel on the television in your hotel. It broadcasts tourist information in German, Japanese, and English. There is lots of information on all the attractions but also camera views at the mountain viewpoints. You can see current weather conditions and the weather forecast, a useful tool to decide in advance if the ascent is worth it that day.
2. When travelling by train with children, find out if it has a family carriage. A lot of the trains have these - carriages with children's play areas in the centre that have a slide, climbing frame, books, etc. This is a great way to keep children entertained throughout the journey.
