Winter in Interlaken

Winter in Interlaken

Located between two Alpine Lakes, Interlaken is a popular Swiss destination for outdoor sports and travel enthusiasts. Interlaken, translated as “between lakes”, is located in the Swiss Alps with routes to the east and west alongside the lakes and into high mountain resort towns reaching the famous Alpine peaks of Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau. While it has its own draws, like luxury hotels, high end shopping, and annual events such as the Swiss Yodel Festival, the town of Interlaken mainly serves as a base camp to discover the breathtaking valleys, mountains, and lakes in the surrounding area.

Due to the scenic landscape and plethora of outdoor activities, Interlaken is a destination that can be enjoyed year round. Since it is only a four hour drive from Stuttgart, this charming Swiss town has quickly become one of our favorite weekend getaways where we have enjoyed things like hiking, canyoning, and skiing. Since this could be our last Winter in Europe for a while, for Valentine’s Day, Ryan and I decided to spend a romantic weekend in our favorite little winter haven in the Swiss Alps.
