Unterseen Interlaken Stedtli Stadthaus Altstadt Sommer

Old town and castle

If you would like to travel back to Interlaken's past, visit Unterseen. The small town can be reached from Interlaken centre in a few minutes by foot, where you can see the impressive medieval buildings around the market place. The church tower from the 13th century, for example, even survived a fire. In the middle of the square stands the town hall, the first hotel in the Bernese Oberland and now a restaurant. It was built in 1470, accommodating animal drivers on the way to Italy. Now back to Interlaken, where two monuments to the past await: the former monastery and the castle where the Bernese bailiff once lived. 

Tour: from the centre of Interlaken, via the Aare watergate to Unterseen, from there via Marktgasse to Höheweg and the Höhematte, where the castle and monastery are located.
