Interlaken, the city of lakes

During our travel in Switzerland we stayed in a cabin in the outskirts of Interlaken. We chose this city as our particular basecamp for our excursions, because it’s moreless in the middle of the places we wanted to visit. The access by road to every route is always very good, and there’s also one of the main train stations of the country.

During our staying in Interlaken we made an excursion to Giessbach Falls, which owes its name to the river of the same name and runs into Brienzersee Lake, East of Interlaken. They are composed of 14 consecutive water falls which fall from a height of 500 meters from the high valleys of Faulhorn, and later run into the Brienzersee Lake, by a historical building where nowadays the Giessbach Grand Hotel is located. It’s like a
