Swiss Inn Hotel & Apartments
Situated in the heart of Interlaken, in a relatively quiet residential neighbourhood, Swiss Inn is a small, cosy hotel run by the most amicable couple I have ever met. The apartments are spacious and family-friendly and free WiFi is also available. You will however have to pay an extra charge for breakfast (Around 15 CHF). Veronica and her husband are always ready to help with directions and the smallest of problems that one might face and even provided us a complimentary pick up and drop at the train station. Expect to shell out anything around 300 CHF per night and go back with wonderful memories. This place is an example of Swiss hospitality at its finest.

Although I was very amused by the name for some inexplicable reason, Harder Kulm is a paradise for hikers and those looking to have a grand view of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau as well as the town of Interlaken flanked by the lakes Thun and Brienz. 1322 meters above sea level, a 10 minute long funicular on the Harder Railway from the Interlaken Ost station gets you to Harder Kulm. There is a playground in order to keep children and even adults occupied and a restaurant that serves delicious local fare. 30 CHF should be enough to get you to and back from Interlaken's home mountain.
