    Hoehematte - in the very centre of Interlaken

    Hoehematte is one of the main attractions of Interlaken and it has an interesting history : At the end of 19th century the owner of Grand Hotel Victoria Jungfrau had given the big meadow in front of his hotel as a gift to the town of Interlaken, and had sentenced, that this very big field never will be changed, never put houses on it, or alter anything for a longer time. - So still nowadays they sometimes will have a circus or fair there, and have to remove some stones or a bit of ground maybe - afterwards it will always be restored originally again.And so most of all hotels in Interlaken can offer their guests the famous JUNGFRAU-BLICK - the view on the famous mountain(s)
    Today Hoehematte is also used by paragliders as a landing directely opposite of the hotel Jungfrau Viktoria. Walking around Hoehematte will take about 30 minutes.

    This 35 acre meadow used to be part of an Augustine monastery. When Interlaken was going through its developing boom, it was slated to be built upon. Concerned citizens and hoteliers bought the meadow so it would not be built upon. Cheers for them!

    We ate our usual backpack lunch on one of the park benches. Our entertainment of the day was watching all the paragliders sail in for their landings. We must have seen about a dozen landings during our lunch. (safely on the ground)
