Need great easy mid-mountain hike (Interlaken), no cable car?

Jump to last reply

Six of us (4 mid-50s adults, 2 teens) are going to Switzerland in June, and we want to spend a day experiencing the Berner Oberland area. I wish we had longer, but we don't. From Interlaken, we would like to spend the day on easy hikes -- downhill or level -- amid beautiful Swiss meadows, seeing spectacular scenery.

From researching it looks like the most common way to get up the mountains to do those great hikes is to take cable cars. However, one in our group has a fear of heights and cannot do cable cars -- but could do a train or a taxi (if those are available). Is there a hike such as I have described that is reachable by train or taxi?

If there is no way we can go up the mountains by train or car to be able to do a level, easy hike, or a downhill hike, and not have to ride in a cable car, then what walks on the valley floor from Interlaken would you recommend for best view and Alpine experience?

Ideally I would love for us to have a lunch or dinner in that restaurant with the 360-degree view - Piz Gloria. Is there a way to reach it that would work for my friend?
