The river Aare or Aar is 295kms long and is the only river which begins and ends entirely in Switzerland. It rises in the Bernese Alps in the Aar Glaciers and travels a very interesting and winding route through Lakes Brienze and Thun and eventually spills into the Rhine at Koblenz, Switzerland (not to be confused with Koblenz in Germany).

The colour of this river, especially where I saw it in Interlaken, is so blue as to be startling. I believe that the colour is brought about by melted ice and snow. Whatever it is, it is beautiful.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
