Interlaken - inspiring congresses between mountains and lakes

Nestled between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, at the foot of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, Interlaken offers not only a variety of locations and numerous hotels, but also the expertise and experience to ensure the success of any event - whether with 50 or 1,500 guests. Combined with short distances and a wide variety of leisure activities, it makes the summer and winter destination of Interlaken an ideal place for successful congresses, inspiring meetings or incentives. Well-known events in Interlaken include the Swiss Economic Forum, for example.

Modern infrastructure at the Congress Centre Kursaal Interlaken

Thanks to the Congress Centre Kursaal Interlaken, Interlaken is one of the most important congress locations in Switzerland. The congress centre is centrally located. The stylish ambience in the historic halls of the Kursaal combined with the modern auditorium makes this location a uniquely attractive venue for events. All 19 halls are flooded with daylight and, with a total event area of 5,000 m2 as well as a capacity of over 1,500 people, is suitable for almost any occasion or event.

In addition, the Congress Centre is surrounded by the Kursaal Park, which is ideal for an aperitif and offers a fantastic view of the Jungfrau mountain. Together with in-house catering, our own event technology and a restaurant that can be rented exclusively, the ideal infrastructure for national and international congresses, events, conferences and symposia of all kinds awaits you at the Kursaal Interlaken - whether live, hybrid or virtual.

Varied supporting programme in the Adventure Capital of Europe

Interlaken is known as the Adventure Capital of Europe and not without reason. Throughout the year, the region offers a diverse range of activities where team spirit can be strengthened. From mountain excursions in the Bernese Alps with the world-famous triumvirate of Alpine peaks, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, boat trips on Lake Thun/Lake Brienz or river rafting in summer to skiing or curling in winter. In addition to these outdoor activities, there is also a wide range of indoor activities, culture and culinary delights. Due to this huge range of possibilities in the Interlaken region, the right experience can be found for every occasion and every group.
