Interlaken is a part of the Oberland administrative region in the Interlaken-Oberhasli District in the Swiss canton of Bern. Situated on the Bödeli, alongside the Aar River that flows between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, the town represents an important and famous tourist attraction of the Swiss Alps, in the Bernese Oberland region. Being the major transport gateway to the mountains and lakes of this region, transport routes were developed to the east and west alongside the lakes and to the south into the mountains along the Lütschine river.
The mountains of the Jungfrau region, including the Jungfrau, (4,158 m- 13,642 ft), the Mönch (4,107 m- 13,474 ft) and the Eiger (3,970 m- 13,020 ft) present a great interest to the mountaineers, and a sequence of connecting mountain railways gives access to the Jungfraujoch the highest point in Europe reachable by train. To the north of the town, the Harded Kulm (1,322 m- 4,337 ft) and to the south, the Schynige Platte (2,076 m- 6,811 ft) show amazing views of the higher mountains.
There are boat trips operating on the lakes Thun and Brienz, the lakeside town Brienz being the starting point for Switzerland’s last remaining steam operated mountain railway, the Brienz-Rothorn railway.
Another attraction in Interlaken is an amusement park, called Jungfrau Park. Situated to the south of the town, it was originally opened as Mystery Park, a paranormal-based theme park, closed in 2006 because of financial difficulties and re-opened in 2009.
The Jungfrau Marathon starts in September in Interlaken.
