There is a large park right in the center of Interlaken. The park hosts one of the most important sights of the city ¬¬¬¬¬¬- the ruins of old Augustinian monastery. It was founded in the first half of the 12th century and worked up to the period of Reformation. After that the monastery was abandoned for a long time. Unfortunately, only a part of the magnificent building has survived till our days. Tourist Museum is also an interesting cultural institution. It offers an exhibition that shows the development of tourism sector of the country.
The city also has some natural attractions. For example, visitors will be amazed to see picturesque parks and squares throughout the city. Do not forget to visit Brienz and Thun Lakes and make a walk along their shore. These lakes gave the name to the city. There are beautiful deciduous and coniferous forests right at the shores, so there’s no wonder why this place has always attracted a large number of fans of ecotourism. Copyright
Excursions to Zytgloggeturm Bell Tower are popular among generations of travellers. The tower was built in the beginning of the 12th century. Originally it was a part of a large fortification complex, and today the tower is considered the symbolic entrance to the Old City. Visitors will see the famous clock of Kasper Brunner on the facade of the bell tower. The clock has become a symbol of the city. In addition to time the clock shows the day of week and month, the phase of the moon and zodiac sign. The clock is decorated with figures of animals. When a new hour starts, a cock alerts about this.
Eiger, Monch und Jungfrau Suburban areas of Interlaken also house many interesting excursion sites. Among them you will find Museum of Rural Life (Freilichtmuseum), which accepts visitors during warm season. This is a large museum complex in the open air located in the small village of Ballenberg.
