Amazing apartment in a beautiful location
We had a wonderful stay at the apartment, it is in a great location with views that are picture perfect. It’s a good 20 minute walk into town, but we went over the train bridge then along the water and past the cows (love those cowbells) and it is a lovely walk.
Would highly recommend as long as you are relatively fit to walk.
Thank you for taking the time to review us and thanks for staying with us.
Super spot with fantastic views
The property is on the edge of Interlaken but only about 20 minutes pleasant walk over the bridge and along the path beside the river which leads to both the boat station and the railway. It is quite delightful to be able to sit out in the garden and watch the boats and breathin the views. The apartment is ideal for a couple and at a pinch upto to children. There is adequate facilities for cooking and barbequing with a large coop and a small late opening coop store at the railway station. Switzerland is not the cheapest place but the travel passes do make for huge savings and are well worth the money.
We found the apartment both compact and very pleasant with the use of free bicycles stored below the main area. This is an ideal place to stay for a holiday that can lead to many visits to other destinations, both far and near.
We had a fantastic time and would recommend this as a great place to stay.
Small but cute
This place is on the beautiful river with a loevly view but for us (family of 4) it was too small. Bathroom is very tiny. Doorway height is very low so don’t book this place if you are tall!
We spent 8 nights in Seegartli Riverside Apartment in October and had a brilliant time. We had high expectations from the pictures and reviews, but it still blew us away. The apartment itself is ideal for 2 people - small but with all the facilities you need. The real treat is the location, which is stunning, with amazing views at all times of day.
Parking was easy, as was access. It's a 10-15 minute walk along the river to Interlaken which is great for a wander around and to watch the paragliders landing. We took day tips up to Harder Kulm, First (from Grindelwald), Trummelbach, Aare Gore and Reichenbach Falls. All great trips and my recommendation would be that, where there is an option to take a funicular or cable car up to a point but walk back down, enjoy the walk. There's so much to see.
If you're considering a trip to this area, I'd very much recommend this property as a brilliant base.
Beautiful home with great views!!
We had a great stay in the house. The room was neat and clean and the property was as described. The view from living room is amazing
The walk to the bus stop is very scenic. You see beautiful homes and their gardens.
View can't be beat
We ended up eating in almost every night because the view and outside ambiance could not be beat. We also enjoyed reading and writing on the couch by the window. The location is perfect. Close enough to town for a quick bike ride or walk into town, but very quiet and peaceful. We arrived during a heat wave, and the apartment got quite hot, but Juliette had a large fan to us the next morning. She also went out of her way to help me when I lost my wallet.
One issue I had was the low doorways. I am 6 feet tall, and I had to duck a bit so I wouldn't hit my head. I taped a couple pieces of dangling paper to remind me to duck, and that worked well. Overall a great stay.

For the less adventurous and families there heaps of famous train journeys, boat rides on either Lake Thun or Lake Brienz and lots of day that include amazing playing parks. There are children friendly hiking routes, with bbq spots on the way.
The 1st of August is National Swiss Day. The day has continuous events, parades and is capped of with one off with a brilliant fireworks at 10pm followed by live bands.
Basically Interlaken has so much to do, I am still working my through the list. The safety, simple style of life and beauty of the place is why I feel lucky to live here. I truly cannot recommend it enough.
