Bernese Oberland travel tips

Unless you have planned to visit really remote areas, a car is not a necessity to explore the Bernese Oberland. There is a fantastic network of trains, buses and cable cars that go almost anywhere.

Train passes

Besides the nation wide rail passes, there is a Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland. It is worth to look into that pass if you plan to stay in the Bernese Oberland only.

Car free areas

The Jungfrau region is car free beyond Grindelwald and Stechelberg (near Lauterbrunnen). The villages of Wengen, Mürren and Gimmelwald cannot be reached by car, and are therefore very attractive to enjoy the Alpine scenery without any nearby traffic.
