Hoehematte is the central meadow in Interlaken, opposite of the Grandhotel Viktoria Jungfrau and it is quite unique in Europe how it could happen that no buildings were placed at this very best piece of land :
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 sentenced, that this very big field never will be changed, never put houses on it, or alter anything for a longer time. - Sometimes they have a circus or fair there, and have to remove some stones or a bit of ground - 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)
recently Hoehematte became the favorite place to land for paragliders, who sart their flights at Harder Kulm and will be landing directely on the Hoehematte opposite of the hotel Jungfrau Viktoria. A bus takes them home again.

Directions: You cannot miss Hoehematte, it is opposite of Hotel Viktoria Jungfrau, along the street between interlaken Ost and Interlaken West-stations.
