5 Unique Things in Interlaken

Here are 5 unique things you can only do in Interlaken! The small town at the foot of the Swiss Alps is picturesque to say the least, and it’s chock full of things to do! Read on to see what surprises Interlaken has in store for you!

1. Best Drinking Water

The water here is bloody good. In fact, it’s so good, Evian once wrote asking us to give them the secret to our perfect water. So we did. And the next day stocks in Danone (Evian’s controlling company) sky-rocketed. We’re not saying the two are linked, but we are saying the two events did happen! If you haven’t tasted our perfect water yet, then you know what destination to put on your travel bucket list.

5 Things You Can Only Do in Interlaken

2. Shin-Cup Noodles

Koreans love us and we love them. A reason for this mutual love is our shared appreciation for Shin-Cup noodles. For the price of only 1,45 Swiss Francs you too can join us in this tantric, chamber of noodle loveliness! Food in Switzerland is expensive to practically everyone but the Swiss, so this is a great budget meal! This (debatably) nutritious and (arguably) filling meal for such a small price means more money to spend on other things! One of our favourite unique things about Interlaken!

3. Toblerone Happiness

Although you can get Toblerone all over the world, the best place to enjoy them is Interlaken! Toblerone have been voted World Chocolate of the Year on four separate occasions – two of the times were in the same year! Everyone loves chocolate and if you don’t, we feel pretty confident that will change in Interlaken!

4. Fireplace Your Life

Most hostels shy away from having proper fireplaces due to stringent fire laws, but here in Interlaken we don’t have a fire service – so we go mental! Okay, that sounds dangerous, but we promise you couldn’t be safer here! Interlaken is lit at night, in both a literal and metaphoric sense, thanks to our monstrous fire. When it’s a cold dark night, rest assured you’ll be warm whilst exchanging travel tales with your new friends in front of our instagrammable wood stove.

5. Authentic Experiences

We love to have fun and be unorthodox because that’s who we are. Many hostels are just multi-bed hotels where it’s just a place to sleep. But we at Balmers can’t bare the idea of boring! This incredible place wasn’t created all those years ago just to be like everyone else! Our guests consistently remark on our atmosphere, and we’re famous for it! We’re proud to be unique and we’ll never change.


And that’s our 5 Unique Things in Interlaken! If you want to do some real traveling and stay in the best hostel Interlaken has to offer, then you really have no choice but to come Balmers Hostel!

A unique adventure is waiting for you!
