Lake Thun or Lake Brienz? The inhabitants of Interlaken like to argue about which side of the town has the more attractive shoreline. The tourists will decide for themselves or simply visit both of them. In Weissenau on Lake Thun, nature abounds with lowland forest, moors and reed beds. On Lake Brienz, Bönigen has the lakeside promenade with its benches and pleasant view across the water and mountains. However different they may be, the two shorelines have two things in common: both can be reached in a short time on foot or via public transport from Interlaken, and there is no lack of picnic options.
