    Museum of the valley of Lauterbrunnen
    The museum, formerly an old mill, is found below the village church in Lauterbrunnen. Here you gain an insight into the daily lives, generations ago, of the inhabitants of the valley and the mountain villages of Gimmelwald, Mürren and Wengen .
    Old customs and crafts come alive again. Fascinating is the story of the 200 years old history of tourism and mountaineering in our valley.


    Open - Air Museum Ballenberg
    The Swiss open - air museum of rural dwellings and life - styles is situated in a charming setting of over 80 hectares (198 acre). About 60 old farmhouses - rebuilt to their original state - give one an idea of the diversity of old Swiss life - styles and customs.
    Old traditional handicrafts such as weaving, lace - making and basket - making are still carried out here today. Our tip: Combine this excursion with a walk through the wood - carving village of Brienz and with a boat trip on Lake Brienz back to Interlaken.

    Starting point for visits to local towns

                 

    Interlaken interesting things to do and see set between the lakes of Thun and Brienz. Music festival in summer. Always popular are tours of Interlaken by horse - driven carriage.


    Spiez
    Spiez lies in an idyllic bay on lake Thun, surrounded by vineyards. The wine produced here is a rarity. This picturesque little town is dominated by its castle and early romaine church where well - preserved frescoes from the 11th century can be seen.

    Thun
    Towering above this busy little town is its beautiful castle, dating from the 11th century. Especially worth a visit is the charming old part of the town. Market days are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays. At Schloss Schadau, in a lovely park by the lakeside, is the only Museum of Gastronomy in Switzerland and a highlight of a visit to Thun.

    Bern
    Switzerland's 800 year old capital city. Here can still be seen the planning and building methods of a medieval town. Especially worth a visit: the Cathedral, the Clock Tower, the Bear Pit and of course the old arcades of this typical Bernese town. Under these 6 km (3.7 mi) of arcades are Bern's lovely shops - also worth a visit on a rainy day! Recommended are the guided tours of the city.
