      City Center Details

      Interlaken is a town of 5,700 inhabitants situated in the highlands of the Bern canton in Switzerland. It stands on the banks of the Aare River, in between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, from which location the town gets its name. In the middle ages, the town was a center for religion (due to the presence, until 1528, of an Augustinian convent nearby), textiles and watchmaking. These days, the town is mostly a center for tourism, among the first in Switzerland. It's a great place from which to start hiking and backpacking through the surrounding mountains. One attraction in Interlaken is the Hoehematte, a central promenade with a view of Jungfrau Mountain.
