Interlaken in the Bernese Oberland between Lakes Thun and Brienz and at the feet of the three famous peaks Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau is a holiday and conference resort. In addition, there is the Schilthorn where there is a cablecar to the mountaintop featured in a James Bond film. A fleet of ships, including one historic paddle-steamer on each lake, cruises on Lakes Thun and Brienz, but maybe not in November. Just ten kilometres away from Interlaken, on a sunny south-facing slope, lies Beatenberg-Niederhorn, a paradise for paragliders. For hikers there is an extensive network of hiking routes. Although skiing is possible nearby, the season hasn't really started.
