Light up your winter

The beautiful illuminations in Interlaken Ost will light up the short winter days from 6 December until the New Year. The magical winter atmosphere has been produced in a partnership between the Interlaken Ost association and the local council. Stroll beneath the magnificently illuminated branches of the tree canopy towards Bahnhofsplatz, where you will find a large and beautifully decorated Christmas tree in all its festive splendour. The impressive setting is completed by the stag, a stylish work of art that stands tall, surrounded by an impressive magic forest.
