MEET BERBEL

Interlaken Walking Tour Guide

The Interlaken Walking Tours were established in 2014 and are part of Outdoor Interlaken. We continue the interview series with Berbel!

Previous Interviews:

What is your name and where are you from?

My name is Berbel and I was born in Interlaken and grew up in Grindelwald

How did you become a guide at Interlaken Walking Tours?

I felt like applying to a fun job where I can spend most of the time outside and move like a “Gemschi” (an alpine chamois)

What is so special about Interlaken?

It’s pure magic – you will feel it once you are here

What is the scariest situation you got yourself into?

Once I was in the Colombian jungle in a shoot-out

What is the worst job you ever had and how long did you stick it out?

Honestly, they were not too bad so far. Probably working as a bartender where I had to clean a lot of “nice things” when people drank too much.

If you would take a guy on a date and want to show him your favorite spot, where would you go to?

That is a top secret place, sorry guys. But I can tell you it is out in the nature and it is absolutely breathtaking

Apart from working for Interlaken Walking Tours, what is your favourite thing to do in Switzerland?

That is an almost never ending list… let’s start with: enjoying and appreciating the super clean fresh air, drinking tap water, getting blown away from the breathtaking landscape scenery and share it with friends, a fresh powder day….

What are you known for?

That I walk a lot 😉

What is the most memorable expedition you have made?

There are so many: swimming in the bioluminescent sea, paddling out on a surfboard in the Caribbean sea and looking at a snowy peak of an altitude of 5’700 meters above sea level

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

As I try to live in the moment I can not see it, sorry 😉

If you were a country which one would you be and why?

Sweden, because I am tall and blond 😉

What are your plans for the upcoming winter?

I might chase the summer

Is there still something you want to achieve?

Nina, you are a legend

Thanks for your time, what are you off to now?

Guiding a Swiss Food & Culture Tour and I can tell that you guys are missing out 😉
