The Ultimate Weekend Itinerary: Interlaken, Switzerland
Day 1 – Visit the Schilthorn – Piz Gloria
Head to the top of a mountain and visit the Schilthorn – Piz Gloria to take in sweeping views of the surrounding Swiss Alps. The top is 2970m above sea level and you’ll be able to view Eiger, Mönch, and the Jungfrau peaks. You’ll take a series of cable cars to reach the very top where you’ll walk across suspended cages that test your courage, and visit the James Bond Museum. We recommend enjoying a meal at the world’s first revolving restaurant!
Day 2 – Kayak Lake Brienz
Interlaken is located between two stunning bright blue lakes, so take the opportunity to view the Alps from a unique perspective, from a kayak on the lake! You’ll have the lake to yourself during the colder months you’ll be surrounded by snow covered mountains which reflect on the reflective water.
