We like staying in Thun - it's only about half an hour away by train from Interlaken and access to the alps and has excellent access to a wide variety of other destinations. e.g. 20 mins to Bern, a lovely interesting city, a day trip to Zermatt is easy, the Lotscberger line to Zweisimmen with connections to Montreux on the Golden Pass route, you can get to Saas-fee via Visp, there are direct trains to Basel, Zurich, Brig, Solothurn, Fribourg, connections via Bern to Geneva, Biel - in fact we travel all over from Thun and it's a pretty little city in its own right - not too touristy. There is a choice of three modes of transport between Thun and Interlaken, train along the south of the lake, bus along the north shore and boat across the lake itself.
