|We found that most mountain valley roads in the
Bernese Oberland have few off-road
parking or lay-bys except at wayside inns and restaurants and there aren't
many options for circular routes when in the mountains. If you hear a frequent car horn watch out for the postbus and be
prepared to pull over.
The lakes at Interlaken have main roads around them but there are few stopping places at
the water's edge on Lake Thun.
We stayed at Interlaken during August when the sites were busy. Try to
be there for the Swiss National Day on August 1st for processions,
fireworks and celebrations.
