Motorhome and Away



home > Europe touring > Switzerland


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.
