we were going to Zurich and planned a visit to the top of Europe Jungfrau
We then took a walk outside ,Zurich by night
Interlaken is a historical city between two lakes lake Thun and lake Brienz ,it was called Interlake hence ,the Aare was the river that flowed between the two lakes .
It was cold around 2 degree Celsius but we were told junganfrau was colder around -7 degrees and had winds of 130 km ph which wasn’t usual .
Interlaken was 1500 meters above sea level and had a population of around 5000
it was in the Berne canton and most spoke German language there
It lay in the foothills of the three peaks in Switzerland ,Jungfrau ( 13642 ft ),Eiger ( 13015 feet and Monch ( 13474 ft )
We were all very disappointed, it seems something like this had never happened for a decade ,our luck
now the tour operator knew all had already paid more than 250 US $ each for the tour and so gave the offer that one could go with the tour the next day weather permitting for an extra 50 $ and for the day a tour of Lucerne would be given as compensation
Mark Twain described this when here as one of the saddest monuments he had seen .
