Interlaken — 3 nights

Nestled between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz in the heart of the Jungfrau region, Interlaken became popular for its proximity to the mountains and lakes of the Bernese Oberland region.
Venture out of the city with trips to Bern (Rose Garden (Rosengarten), UNESCO-Altstadt von Bern, &more), Grindelwald-First (in Grindelwald) and Engelberg (Titlis Cliff Walk & Titlis). There's still lots to do: fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, stop by The Mad Cow, pause for some serene contemplation at Rom.-Katholische Kirchgemeinde, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Maennlichen.
