Subject: Re: Interlaken
I agree with Ed about the most remarkable lodgings being just a few kilometers south of Interlaken. For more information look at his website

In Muerren, the most beautiful place in the world--if you like mountains--a fantastic view can be had from the Hotel Eiger, a 4 star hotel. Lesser hotels, but with true examples of Swiss ambience is the Alpenruh with a great view and the Blumenthal, but not with as spectacular a view. We have stayed at the Alpina in Muerren, but it falls short of your 4 star requirements. However, we would return there in a heartbeat for a short stay.

For longer stays we usually stay in Wengen, just across the Lauterbrunnen Valley from Muerren and you can see why at my travelogue, on the Traveling with Ed and Julie Website at
