Airtime Paragliding

Flying face-to-face with the snow-capped Mountains

Reviewed By Kristen B - Denton, Texas

We had an amazing time paragliding and I don’t think there is a prettier place to do it. What really made our experience great was our instructors. Buzz and Lars are hilarious and made us feel comfortable running off the side of the mountain. Would go again!

Reviewed By Abhishek V

I was solo traveling through Europe and had a stop in Interlaken, always wanted to skydive but handgliding looked much more promising, because you dont get a high alpine mountain to run and jump from everywhere. The guides were amazing, Raoul, Toby and Benz were...MoreCheers my bru for the fab review!! toooo goood.

Oeschinen Lake

Oeschinensee is accessible by foot from Kandersteg within 1.5 hours. The cable car operates in summer and winter season daily from mornings till evenings - non stop. In summer enjoy swimming in the lake, boat rides on the blue and clear water or just have fun with the toboggan run at the top station of the cable car. Several hotels around the lake offer rooms in summer. Restaurants are open in winter and summer. The region belongs to the Unesco heritage Jungfrau-Aletsch.

We visited Oeschinensee in mid-October, and were lucky to have a clear sunny day. We took the train from Thun to Kandersteg early in the morning to beat the crowds (which was a good choice), and then got the cable car up to Oeschinensee as soon as it opened. We walked down to the lake from the cable car, and walked all around the area for a few hours to admire the amazing views. Then we headed back to do the toboggan run (it was great fun!) before heading back down to Kandersteg. I would definitely recommend for a day trip!

Thunersee

Reviewed By SueMPA - PA

This lake is gorgeous with the Alpine views and is easily accessible by public transportation. There are tons of places to eat, drink and shop in the town so it's worth a stop even if only for a couple hours. We stayed one night and strolled through the town and along the lake to the Schadau Park. It's really nice and from what we saw of Interlakken, staying in Thun was a good choice.

Blumental Panorama Trail

Reviewed By peyjax - ohio

I was sick and could not climb high due to asthma and allergies. I did this trail all day and was good. The views are just spectacular and different than riding in cable cars and trains. Something about walking past cows changes it. Switzerland is designed for kids as there are loads of secret trails and treasures like zip lines and slides around each turn. SO FUN!

Chateau de Chillon

The doors of one of Europe's most fascinating castle are open to you. This thousand year old historical monument is located in an natural setting on the shores of Lake Geneva in at the foot of the Alps in Switzerland. Individual or groups tours, unaccompanied, guided or with an audioguide are available. Chillon also organises Exhibitions, artistic and popular Performances, as well as Concerts throughout the year. Open all year round (except January 1 and December 25).

Reviewed By TourismProfessional - Worcester, UK

We were staying in Geneva and got a combined train ticket and entrance to the castle from Geneva train stations information centre (it is cheaper to do it this way). When you get to Montreaux train station go down the steps (there are signs for the chateau) and cross the road and pick up the bus (can't remember the number) so that you have your back to the lake and it is behind you. The Chateau is only a few stops and you can see it up ahead to know when to get off. It was POURING with rain on the day we visited and sadly couldn't distinguish the lake from the Mountains it was all grey. The inside was a maze with lots of steps and little rooms. Some rooms they had emphasised and others they hadn't really bothered with when they could have - the room with the 13th century painted animals Springs to mind. There could have been more interpretation. You can hire an audio guide for 6sf I suppose if you wanted to know more.

Niederhorn

Reviewed By j1954g - Tetbury, United Kingdom

This is a review of the Niederhorn itself and not the restaurant at the summit.
I'd visited this area before but never been up the cable car to the Niederhorn - what a lovely place this was, in warm hazy sunlight, with wonderful views across the whole chain of Bernese Alps, Interlaken, and Lake Thun. There are also views over the nearby Justis Valley from the summit of the mountain (in the other direction), but be careful as, although the edge is fenced off, there is a long sheer drop down.
Lots of paragliders taking off and soaring against the fabulous backdrop of the Alps.
The Niederhorn can be accessed from Interlaken either by taking a postbus to Beatenberg or a bus to Beatenbucht and then the funicular to Beatenberg. From Beatenberg the cable car goes up in two stages and there is a restaurant at both the summit and the halfway stage at Vorsass. We found extremely friendly cows at Vorsass! There is a discount on the cable car if you have a Swiss Travel Pass.

Lakeside Promenade Fleuri

Reviewed By michael c

I have been to many countries, Switzerland is the cleanest, most beautiful and peaceful place I have traveled. The flowers and Gardens, the lakeside walks and the beautiful mountain range around the lake makes this place a must see. Lausanne and Montreux are stunning. If the cost of living was not so high I would live here. Very peaceful lifestyle.

Funiculaire Moleson sur Gruyeres

Reviewed By Vicmonte - Metro Manila, Philippines

If you are in Central Switzerland, you have to visit Moleson and you have two options to reach the summit, the easy way or the hard way. Either way, the surrounds is a must to see! In my case, we took the gondola and we were treated with outstanding views of the Swiss Alps!!! On a clear day, you can see Mount Blanc! When the clouds start to roll in, it is awesome experience. You can either just stay in the restaurant or if you are fit, you can hike around!

Maison Cailler Chocolaterie

Reviewed By emmaella611 - Moutier, Switzerland

It’s more than 5 times I visit this place.
I like all the concepts. One thing I don’t like is “the audio” because it’s not so practice. It’s better if Maison Cailler also provide the earphone.
The quiz and film in the cinema: it’s better to change the film or quiz regularly.
The staff in the “tasting counter” is not really friendly. No smile at all.
Come on Maison Cailler. You can do better than this. Up grade your service and be more creative.
