  • The Shopping Card is open to everyone and available at all participating stores as well as Interlaken Tourism

  • Completed Shopping Cards can be redeemed at the Interlaken Tourism office on Postplatz and exchanged for a "regio gutschein" voucher worth CHF 15

  • A list of suppliers where you can claim your "regio gutschein" voucher is published online at regiogutschein.ch

Sunday shopping

Discover winter surprises and find the perfect Christmas presents for your loved ones – and don’t miss Sunday shopping, which takes place on 18 December 2022 from 11.00 am to 5.00 pm. Throughout the weekend, the "Hügeiss" petting zoo will be open at the Interlaken post office. Santa Claus and his helper "Schmutzli" will also be patrolling the centre of Interlaken in the company of a llama.

Some shops will be opening on Sunday 4 December and Sunday 11 December 2022 as well. Please take note of the opening hours, which may vary.

Family search game

The impressive "Winterlaken Boxes" will be on display in around 15 shop windows all over Interlaken from 1 December 2022 to 31 January 2023. Every "Winterlaken Box" is different; they all tell you something, and each one asks a question which, with luck, directs you to the main prize in the family search game. Ideal for all ages! Participation cards are available from the shops.
