Interlaken is known as the gateway to Jungfrau, but for us it was the gateway to Munich and Oktoberfest. In the style of a travel guide writer like Rick Steves, our visit to Interlaken went something like this:

Need a place to relax after a day of hiking near Gimmelwald? Check out Backpackers Villa, where unlike the Mountain Hostel, showers are included and seem to have an endless supply of hot water. While you’re here, be sure to grab yourself a Rösti from Des Alpes, buy those last minute Swiss Chocolates, and book a train to Oktoberfest through the helpful ticket guy at Interlaken OST – you won’t regret it!    

Interlaken was good, but that Rösti was great!
