Works of art by regional artists

From 20 November 2020

Kunstobjekt Steinböcke auf dem Postplatz

Typical objects of the region were the inspiration for fascinating decorative works of art, which were created by hand by local artists. How about the following tour? For example from Interlaken west to east? Interlaken guests are warmly greeted by the magnificent stag on the Migros forecourt. On the Postplatz, the capricorn family enjoys a fondue, a scenery that invites you to take a special selfie for friends and family. The Christmas tree on the market square presents itself mystical and with suggestions for atmospheric songs. The path then leads along the Höheweg promenade to Interlaken Ost, where the illuminations in Switzerland's largest tree canopy radiates a glitter of light and with a little foresight you can quickly spot the winter bear, the latest creation, enjoying itself in its enchanted forest.
