    Traveling While Black

    I wish I could give this area a higher rating, but my experience in this region only stems around adventure. Journey to the highest train station in Europe, Jungfraujoch. This in itself was worth the trip to Switzerland. Watching the picture-perfect Swiss countryside roll by, the mountain waterfalls, and the snowcapped peaks of the Swiss Alps; it was absolutely beautiful. If you ever have the chance to make it to Jungfraujoch, take the opportunity to try some of the activities at the station. Fill up on some swiss chocolate flavors you can’t get anywhere else but Switzerland, walk through the ice caves carved into a glacier, and go snowtubing down the side of a Swiss mountain. If I came back to the Jungfrau Region I would love to head to Harderkulm Lookout for the breathtaking views of Interlaken and Unterseen. Also, hang gliding is a really big deal in this area. If I ever build up the courage to jump off of a mountain side strapped to another person and a human sized kite, this would be the perfect place to do it. I’ve heard really great things about other areas of Switzerland as well. If my money’s right, I’ll be back!

    Traveling While Black

    Stay at Balmer’s Hostel (even if Hostels aren’t your thing). Balmer’s is designed for travelers and the staff will help set up any excursion you want. They offer paragliding and other adventures that they will book for you and provide transportation if need be. They also give all guests a bus pass that gives you unlimited bus rides for the duration of your stay. This is helpful as it allows you to take the bus to the train station if you want to take a day trip out of Interlaken. You still have to pay for your own train ticket of course, but the free bus pass is handy. We used Interlaken as a base to take day trips to Grindelwald, Bern, Thun, and a few others. For those reluctant to trust Hostels, we stayed in a private room (not a bunk) and we had our own bathroom. We paid 40 dollars each per night for three nights (four of us). Balmers also has a gameroom (room with pool tables), hammock room, and nightclub attached to it, but there aren’t many black folks there usually (they are friendly though for sure). From our experiences, we found Interlaken very welcoming to black people (Switzerland on a whole really). There is a beautiful lake called lake Brienz nearby where you can go to relax.

    Traveling While Black

    Interlaken, Switzerland is home to endless activities such as skiing and paragliding (which I recommend https://www.paragliding-interlaken.ch/en). Just an hour away, is the gorgeous area of Adelboden where I chose to stay at the Cambrian Hotel. During my search for accommodations, I wanted to find a less expensive option to the one sweeping Instagram, called Villa Honegg. That boutique hotel costs $700-$1000/night due to its iconic pool overlooking the lake and mountains. The Cambrian Hotel (https://www.thecambrianadelboden.com/en) however, is a designer hotel that rivals the Honegg with panoramic mountain views acting as a backdrop to the hotel’s beautiful pool. This hotel still comes at a luxury price of $200-300/night for Mountain View rooms (category: deluxe panorama) but still a fraction of the price if you’re looking for a comparison to the other. I recommend renting a car at the airport (we used Sixt) as you will want the freedom to explore and get to Interlaken for some fun.
