Arriving at Interlaken, around 3pm. Then do what?

As posted a few question here already, I have this other questions on how to make good use of my time once I arrive to Interlaken, and checked-in.

I will take a train from Paris in the morning, and go via Geneva, and straight to Interlaken, assuming arrival around 3pm, and after check in, it will be about 4pm.

I'm wondering what can I do after 4pm, as going up to the mountains is a little late, and I might have already spent some 5-6 hours in a train.

What is there to see at the vicinity of Interlaken town ...? Going for a drink is too early though ..

Any ideas are appreciated.

Explore. Walk to Unterseen and look around there, walk along the lakeside perhaps, towards Brienz.

From Geneva to Interlaken, take the Golden Pass route via Gstaad. It may be slower, but a lot less boring than the faster routes.

Hi bofoster,

I intend to buy the Swiss Saver Pass, once I arrive at Geneva. Can I immediately board the Golden Pass train to Interlaken? I checked that the Golden Pass train is free with the Swiss Pass.

I just don't know if it can be activated immediately.

I'll also check the timetable as well.

Golden Pass panoramic train incurs a seat reservation charge.

Your Pass will be activated once bought and paid for, passport checked and stamped.
