5 free things to do at Balmers, Interlaken

Here is 5 free reasons why you will have an amazing stay at Balmers Hostel.

During your trip to Switzerland, you can not miss visiting the beautiful city of Interlaken. Located at the heart of green mountains, this small town is situated at the junction of two lakes whose water from a glacier gives them an incredible turquoise color. The hostel, Balmers Hostel, is part of the “famous hostel” association since the very beginning. It is also the first youth hostel in Switzerland.

1. Chill in the Jacuzzi

What a pleasure to be able to bathe quietly in a good hot bath. After a long day of activities or even if you just want to enjoy, do not hesitate to put your swimsuit and go relax in the jacuzzi which is located in the garden of the hostel.

2. Rest and read a book in the hammock room

The best place to read a good book is definitely in a hammock and gently rock yourself as you read. You also have access to a free book exchange shelve. No excuse, it is time to take some time for yourself and read something that make you feel good.

3. Eat food off the guest kitchen free food shelves

Switzerland is a very expensive country and going to restaurants every night is often not an option. For those who wish to cook, Balmers has just completely renovated his kitchen. There are some cheap supermarkets that will allow you to shop at a reasonable price. Otherwise there is also a shelf with free food left by the other travellers who do not need it anymore. Have fun.

4. Drink the best alpine water in the world

Did you know that a high-quality drinking water flows from 18 village fountains all year around in Interlaken ? This water is coming from the Aletsch region (UNESCO World Cultural Heritage) and meets the most stringent standards for drinking water. So fill up your water bottle with this pure refreshing water and keep the money in your pocket.

5. Ask our knowledgeble staff super crew the quickest way to get to the lakes for a picnic.

Why not ask at the reception the best way to get to the lake Brienz or lake Thun in order to take a dip in the water. In summer, the water is crystal clear and super refreshing. We suggest you to buy some snacks at the supermarket and make the best picnic ever.
