The best deal I've ever found is the Chalet Fontana in Muerren...past Interlaken up in the Alps.


You know, Interlaken is not in the Alps. The stunning and breathtaking scenery is about a 20 minute train ride PAST Interlaken into the Lauterbrunnen Valley. From there you will see the sights that you actually came to Switzerland to see. As you arrive in Lauterbrunnen Muerren sits on your right and Wengen on your left.

Another good search site is at


where you can search several villages at one time.

I also don't much care for Interlaken and would rather be up in the mountains --

Good luck!

Interlaken is very good place for a base with kids.


Wengen, Lauterbrunnen, Mürren will also be teeming with tourists that time of year, and can get boring with not much else to do than hiking, hiking and hiking. OK the views are spectacular, but even in Interlaken you got spectacular views of the alps.

From Interlaken it is much easier to do daytrips -> Lake Brienz, Ballenberg, Lake Thun, Thun with it's castle, Harder or day trip to Bern etc etc...

It's difficult to imagine Muerren teeming with tourists ANY time of the year...perhaps January/February for ski season.

It's all a matter of preference. We've personally been to this area 5 or 6 times and always stayed in either Muerren or Wengen. We've done some daytrips down to Interlaken and boat rides on Brienz and Thun. We've visited the Geissbach Falls and the towns of Brienz and Thun as well as the Thun Castle. It was an interesting daytrip and a fun break from the mountains for a day. But returning to the alpine villages was always welcome...by the way we are a family of 4 also.

Interlaken is an excellent hub for train connections, souvenirs, and McDonalds Happy meals if you need them.

I don't think I would worry too much about big crowds in Wengen or Murren in June either. Especially this year when most of the locals are concerned about a dip in tourism due to the ecconomy. Late June is usually a great time for a visit to any of the mountain villages as the flowers are still blooming, all the hotels are available, and the height of the tourist season is still a month away. The sites above should give you a good start at finding options.

That depends on your budget.If you are Indian (seems from you name) then I suggest you stay near Interlaken West station as lot's of Indian restaurents around.

Budget accomodation :Rugenpark Bed and Breakfast

Medium : City Oberland/Weisseskreuz/Crystal/Chalet Swiss

Premium :Metropole/Interlaken/Krebs

Luxury :Linder Grand Beu Rivage/Victoria Jungfrauch

I am staying at Krebs in June as it is newly renovated hotel with air conditioning.June is summer in Switzerland .so not taking chances with other hotels without airconditioning
