Photographer's Note

A view of Interlaken with Thunnersee on the left and Brienzersee on the right. Pictures taken from Schynige Platte (1967 m) which offers good aerial view of Interlaken and its lakes. This is a stitched of four images. Tried doing this a few times but this is the best I could manage.

The town takes its name from its geographical position between the lakes , but the name was only coined in 1891, replacing the old name Aarmühle (Aare mills). Located at 570 meters above sea level, Interlaken (pop 5,200), is one of the oldest tourist resorts in Switzerland, and it remains one of the most popular. The town offers visitors a strategic base from which to explore the surrounding areas. For myself I had chosen the village of Grindelwald as my base for its closer proximity to the mountains in the Jungfrau region.
