Interlaken - Blaze of Glory in Switzerland   by Travel Guy

Interlaken is a stunning holiday destination in Switzerland. It is the main tourism hub for the Bernese Oberland region in Switzerland and one of the top tourist resorts in Europe. Interlaken means 'between the lakes' which is appropriate as it is situated between lakes of Thun and Brienz, at the foot of Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau.

Interlaken is one of the oldest tourist resorts in Switzerland and it remains one of the most popular spot where yearly visitors far outnumber its permanent inhabitants. The main attraction is probably the magnificent Jungfrau Mountain. However, it also has some other attractions which you could very easily surpass. While the Castle may not be that easy to miss, you should also visit the castle church, the ancient monastery and the variety of fascinating old buildings in the area.

Another attraction that comes highly recommended is the open air Tell play. This show tells the story of Schiller's William Tell and is performed each year in the Rugen wood at Interlaken. It has been taking place since 1912 and in the decades that have passed since the first performance, hundreds of thousands of spectators have been entertained by this unique attraction.
