Interlaken - Swiss Folklore Show?

Has anyone attended the folklore show and/or had dinner at Restaurant Spycher (Interlaken)? I sometimes enjoy a bit of touristy entertainment, and was wondering if it was fun (and was the food edible)..?

Yes, we attended the show and played in the casino.

We were on a business trip and they took us there. It was corny, but fun. The food was quite good, and the wine flowed---so much so, that I ended up on the stage with several others playing washboards withspoons. MDH laughed and laughed, because this is not me at all.

At the small casino we played a small form of roulette. It was fun and I won some.

Thanks, good to know. Thinking of 'springing' the show on our traveling companions next September (grown son and DIL). Hubby and I attended one in Lucerne at the Stadtkeller and enjoyed it a lot. Interlaken is the mid-portion of the trip, thought a fun night out together might be good about then.

Expect a smaller show than at Stadtkeller in Lucerne. I hear that at Casino Spycher is by 2 or maximum 3 performers.

I wanted to see this show, but, when we visited (early June), it had not yet started for the season. So it may not be available in September.

Ok, now I remember. This restaurant is open with show June or Septmeber BUT possibly only for group reservations. If the place is already open (with group reservations), you show up and they might take you.

Murren does a similar show. They have several groups who sing, dance and/or play the alpen horn. It's free and they even have free bottles of wine on the tables for you to pour from! There's nothing glitzy about it--just locals sharing the talent from the area.

It's only one night a week but we really enjoyed it.

Are you sure you want to "spring" this on a younger couple?

I don't know the couple, but I'd go nuts if somebody sprung this on me. Espeically if my in-laws got drunk and played washboard.

Just sayin....

Oh, it would be ok! They're in their early 40's, and don't mind being goofy sometimes.

I can just hold the idea of Spycher vs Stadtkeller, and figure out which is offering what as the trip gets nearer. Thanks for the add'l input.
