Re: Interlaken youth hostels
I have been to Interlaken twice before, though not on a bike, by train. It is the way into the Jungfrau region. I recommend you park the bike for a day and spend a day doing the loop up to Grindelwald, up the Eiger, then back around to Interlaken. This is a fabulous train trip every part of which is worthwile, beautiful and exciting. Make sure you include the portion that goes up the Eiger inside the mountain (Kleine Scheidig?) and the loop back to Intelaken, not simply the return from Grindelwald straight back to Interlaken the way you came up. This will also give you a good feeling for the region, the roads and other possibilities. Have lunch in Grindelwald at a hotel looking straight up at the Eiger north face.
Chose a good, clear day and you will remember it forever.
