Common Questions

public transportation

Driving in Interlaken is very safe and easy (the roads are well paved, but driving in the mountains could a challenge). A very good alternative is the public transport, as buses / trains run regularly, are punctual and reliable. From the train station Interlaken West you have connections in all directions.

Climate

Generally speaking,the climate is temperate, although extreme weather conditions do occur from time to time. Temperatures rarely exceed 30°C in July and August, or drop below -10°C from December to February. Snowfall varies from year to year but unless the winter is particularly harsh, snow in town rarely lies for more that two or three days at a time. There is however, a fair amount of rain.

Security

Since Interlaken is extremely popular amongst wealthy tourists from all over the world (and the region is wealthy in general), I do not have to take extra precautions – you can wear expensive jewellery, bags, and walk around alone by night without having to worry. Interlaken is also great for solo female travellers
