        As you plan to join us for our annual Summer Assembly,
       we want to try and help you find suitable accommodation
                in Interlaken and the surrounding area.

           The Interlaken Tourist Office website is very helpful:


 Click on ’EN’ for English. Click on the ‘Lodging’ button and it will let
      you choose between hotels, apartments, camp sites, group
            accommodation, etc. as well as booking online.

            You can also request an accommodation brochure
                          from the tourist office:
  E-mail: mail@interlakentourism.ch / Tel: +41 (0)33 826 53 00 / Fax: +41 (0)33 826 53 75
          Your church should have received information from the tourist office.

In this brochure, we have listed several suggestions from different lower
   price accommodation categories. If you would like to know more
 about any them, or need help making a reservation, call Lorraine at
                  the IBC office (+49 (069) 9540 8505).

          The less expensive are basic, but comfortable & clean.

 Also, Interlaken itself is more expensive. If you have a car and don’t
          mind driving every day, have a look at places like:
              Bönigen, Ringgenberg, Goldswil, Wilderswil,
           Lauterbrunnen, Habkern, Beatenberg, Leissigen.
        These are around 10-20 minute by car from Interlaken.

       We would also encourage churches to organise a ‘group
accommodation’. This will encourage people to come to Interlaken as
 well as keeping the cost down and providing more opportunity for
                    fellowship as a church group.
