Route and travel duration

Route Bern–Trubschachen–Lucerne–Brienz–Interlaken Ost–Bern
Distance about 200 km
Duration of the trip 5 hours



Bern is the starting point of your journey. The capital offers a unique medieval atmosphere with numerous fountains, sandstone façades, alleyways and historic towers. The old town is a Unesco World Heritage Site and has one of the longest weather-protected shopping promenades in Europe with six kilometres of arcades. The boutiques, bars and small street cafés attract locals as well as many tourists. Despite its good public transport system, Bern's city centre is best explored on foot.


Kambly Experience

In the middle of the idyllic Emmental valley, the train stops right in front of the Kambly Experience, where you can discover the secrets of the art of pastry making.



Lucerne is the gateway to Central Switzerland and lies on Lake Lucerne. The covered, medieval Chapel Bridge with its gable paintings is considered one of the oldest covered wooden bridges in Europe. Another of the city's landmarks is the Musegg Wall, which has been preserved in its original fortified form apart from one tower.



Probably the most romantic part of Brienz is Brunngasse, which is famous beyond Switzerland's borders and has been described as the "most beautiful alley in Europe". Most of the houses in the alley date back to the 18th century and are decorated with wood carvings. Brienz, known as a village of carvings, has a long tradition of woodworking and still has a carving school and a violin-making school today.

From April to October, the onward journey to Interlaken can be made by boat.



Interlaken is located in the Bernese Oberland on an alluvial plain between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz. Overlooked by the three mighty mountains the Eiger, the Mönch and the Jungfrau, the holiday resort is the starting point for numerous activities. The Interlaken-Brienz route can be travelled by boat from April to October.
