Travel: Victoria-Jungfrau, Switzerland
If you feel like you have exhausted all activities on rainy days in Great Britain and are tired of the temperamental weather, take a trip to Switzerland. Whether you use the renowned health spas, try adventure sports or just want to visit the chocolate and cheese shops – here you can spend a vacation full of activities or leisure.
Victoria Jungfrau is located in the small town of Interlaken in Switzerland between two untouched lakes – with rooms with a view of the snow-capped Jungfrau peak and paragliders in the sky. The hotel offers the most impressive scenes. From the train ride into town, you'll see views so picturesque that a photo can't do it justice.
Victoria Jungfrau, a mixture of old and new, has combined two hotels that have existed for more than 150 years and adopted a modern touch. It is a place of greatness and opulence without being overwhelming. From the modern black and gold decor in the foyer to the chandeliers in marble corridors, there is a new detail on every corner.
There are 216 rooms, all elegant and timeless in different colors and designs, where neoclassical furniture meets modern conveniences (including USB ports if you forget your adapter). The spacious rooms all offer mountain views – they will be hard to leave!

Where do you eat? For breakfast, you can go to the La Terrasse restaurant and feel like you've jumped out of Switzerland into a nifty French orangery surrounded by palm trees and gilded parrots. The decor almost makes you forget how hungry you are – but the buffet offers hot and cold breakfasts with as many rounds as you'd like to prepare for your next day.
Surrounded by palm trees
You can return to La Terrasse for lunch and dinner and put on your best dress for sophisticated French cuisine. If you need something more casual, Ristorante Sapori offers you a long list of Italian dishes. If you just fancy a glass of rosé or an old fashioned, find a seat on the sun-drenched terrace or go to the cozy lounge (indoor) of the Victoria Bar when the snow falls with full force.
Put on your best dress
The impressive 5,500 m² spa should definitely be explored in the Victoria Jungfrau. In addition to the centerpiece, an illuminated indoor pool, there are also steam baths, saunas, an outdoor saltwater pool with thermal jets and relaxation rooms (including a separate area for women only). Nescens, a pioneer of the Swiss anti-aging and holistic approach, offers individual special diagnostics with specialists, rejuvenating cosmetic treatments and therapies as well as personal training and detoxification plans. If you're looking for a less invasive, relaxed afternoon, soothing SENSAI treatments with silk and healing water from Japanese sources take place in a modern cocoon-style treatment area.
Escape the hotel and enjoy what Interlaken has to offer – enjoy the lakes and streams, the fresh mountain air, the deep green forests and the ambience of the picturesque villages.
