A labyrinth made of Christmas trees sounds like something out of a Christmas movie. In Interlaken however it is customary and it makes for a fun new adventure in the adventure capital of the world. The Labyrinth is free to explore and along the way you will discover Swiss objects like a giant fondue caquelon (official word for a fondue pot) and, logically, loads of Christmas trees. The trees were all donated to the maze by the residents of Interlaken and its surroundings, giving their trees a second life.
The Christmas tree Labyringht is open daily until from the 13th of January until the 19th of February 2023. The labyrinth opens every day from 8.30 am to 9.30 pm at the northwestern end of the Höhematte.
