Interlaken

Nestled between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz in the heart of the Jungfrau region, Interlaken became popular for its proximity to the mountains and lakes of the Bernese Oberland region.
Kick off your visit on the 22nd (Wed): take in the awesome beauty at Jungfraujoch and then hit the slopes at Maennlichen. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 23rd (Thu): admire the sheer force of Trümmelbachfälle, then glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and then take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Harderkulm.

To plan Interlaken vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

New York City, USA to Interlaken is an approximately 14-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from New York City to Interlaken. In September, Interlaken is slightly colder than New York City - with highs of 65°F and lows of 48°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Thu) to allow time to drive to Lucerne.

In north-central Switzerland, Lucerne represents a small city boasting a well-preserved old town.
Start off your visit on the 24th (Fri): take a stroll through Old Town and then contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Zurich. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the views from Chapel Bridge, then identify plant and animal life at Mt Pilatus, then pause for some photo ops at Lion Monument, and finally contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Lucerne.
