Rainy days with family: don’t let boredom win

When you have children, a rainy day can be a real challenge – especially when time is short or your loved ones don’t have any toys in their hotel room. Even an earthworm can offer inspiration, though – many kids enjoy just jumping in puddles. But don’t worry, there are bigger adventures awaiting discovery when it’s overcast or rainy.

Get out and about, even in the rain

Kitted out in waterproof clothing that the rain can’t touch, there is fun to be had in Interlaken whatever the weather. If you’re already wet, why not make a splash on the lake? If that’s a little too much water for your tastes, seek out natural protection in deep caves and spectacular gorges.

Destinations the weather can’t spoil: plenty to experience without the sun

Use the inclement weather to do something cultural and find fresh inspiration in one of the museums. When the clouds shroud the forests and the rain pelts against the windows, the mood on Lakes Thun and Brienz is like nothing else. Many day-trip destinations promise an especially mystical experience on overcast days.

Wellness: When it rains, just relax

You don’t always have to be busy. Why not discover oases of peace and relaxation amid a peerless natural landscape? Indulge in a spa treatment or recharge your batteries in the wellness centres of Lakes Thun and Brienz.
