What’s a hideaway?

[Translate to Englisch:] Frühling am Thunersee - 2

Switzerland as a whole is a hideaway, as is the Holiday Region Interlaken in particular. A hideaway is a place whose beauty makes your heart beat faster and which makes you feel that you have finally arrived. A hideaway is a place where you really experience nature up close, that gives you a feeling of security, leaves a lasting impression, calms your mood and heightens your senses. A hideaway can be time out in the seclusion of nature, a programme of pampering in a beautiful, quiet wellness oasis on the deep blue waters of Lake Thun, an overnight stay in a comfortable lodge or even in a rustic hut in the midst of a beautiful alpine landscape.

It can also be stopping off at a charming bar or relaxing in a café located in one of the region’s most beautiful “sundowner” squares. Your personal definition of a hideaway might also include an excursion involving gentle physical activity that gives you a sense of contentment.

Insider tips will show you how to reach the peaceful spots where you can escape the madding crowds. Even busy places can become hideaways at certain times of day and during certain seasons. For example, the paths through the nature reserves and along the lakes are quiet and almost deserted early in the morning. It's the same story in the mountains. The mountain inns are full of enthusiastic hikers or skiers during the day, but are generally very quiet in the evening. An overnight stay in a comfortable room in a mountain inn is an unforgettable experience and gives you wonderful views of the moon and stars. When you wake up on the following morning, you’ll be taken aback by just how quiet and peaceful it is.
