Switzerland’s biggest Ferris wheel is in Interlaken

This summer, do the rounds of Switzerland’s biggest Ferris wheel in Interlaken. How does it feel to soar above the city’s rooftops? The 46-metre Ferris wheel with 36 capsules is set to open on 11th July. Enjoy panoramic, 360-degree views as you sway your way to lofty heights in a stylish capsule. The turquoise waters of Lake Brienz sparkle like emeralds in the east, while deep blue Lake Thun resembles a sapphire to the west. Mountains, like a chain of pearls, encircle the whole scene. From the Ferris wheel, marvel at all destination peaks surrounding the twin lakes of the Bernese Oberland – the Brienzer Rothorn, Harder, Schynige Platte, Niederhorn, Niesen and Stockhorn. Near the end of the valley, the snow-capped summit of the world-famous Jungfrau gleams like a diamond. With luck, a paraglider will skim right past your capsule on the approach to Höhematte park.
