Softly Mobile Holiday in Interlaken (Switzerland)

Stunning Scenery of 3 Imposing Alpine Peaks

Switzerland at its most magnificent: greenish blue lakes, steamboats, Alpine meadows in full bloom, grazing cows, picturesque villages, wood-timbered houses against the backdrop of snow-covered mountain peaks and rugged rocks. – That’s Interlaken for you! Interlaken is easily accessible via Intercity, ICE, Eurocity or Regional Express from any major city in Switzerland or across the border. The entire Jungfrau area can be comfortably explored via bus and train.

 

Use the Jungfrau railway to scale to a height of over 3,400 m above sea level and you will be rewarded with a breath-taking panoramic view. The Interlaken area abounds with numerous scenic hiking, mountaineering and mountain bike trails. Many delightful destinations wait to be explored, all of them accessible with eco-mobility. A variety of electric vehicles are available for rent, including e-bikes, Mitsubishi iMiev electric cars, e-scooters, and Segways. If you’d rather go at a slower pace, try a pleasant horse-drawn carriage ride or a fun ride in the Bödelibähnli, a little Disney-like train.
