... there were any other non-mountainous activities in Interlaken, and spoke to an extremely jaded and over it "guide" who basically told us, go up the mountain or don't, here's a brochure, make your own mind up. I can understand her frustration at having to deal with idiot tourists all day who do absolutely no research before coming to her town, but it is her job to assist (I think).
