Mark Twain once stayed at this landmark, which was designed to take in the view of the snowy Jungfrau. Topped by a magnificent Victorian-style cupola and spire, and lushly appointed with glittering salons, the hotel originated as two humbler inns, the Jungfrau (1807) and the Chalet Victoria (1810). These were merged and expanded, and the facade redesigned and landmark tower added in 1899. (Only two rooms, including the 19th-century restaurant, survived all this renovation.)
Enjoy a drink in one of the hotel's many bars or dine on its grassy terrace—this is as luxe as Interlaken gets.
