Hello dinhasty! Choosing the right pass can be difficult indeed. Prices for regular train trips are available in the timetable
. Buses and cable car companies often list a price overview at their own website. You'll find the most important ones in the Bernese Oberland link section on transportation
. Our FAQ
also provide guidelines on calculating.
As for a rail pass: it's a bit hard to say which one is best, as I don't know what your plans in Bern and Lucerne are. If you plan to make trips there as well, I wouldn't pick the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland
if I were you, as that doesn't really cover the Bern and Lucerne area. If the pass does appeal to you, you should take the 7 day variant.
The Swiss Flexi Pass
is especially economical if you plan to make long and expensive trips on a few days. Based on the information you provide, your longest trips would be the transfers Bern-Lauterbrunnen, Lauterbrunnen-Lucerne and your boat ride over lake Thun, so you should opt for a 3 day Swiss Flexi Pass in that case, as you don't seem to need more free travel days. You could use a 50% or 25% discount on the remaining days.
The Swiss Half Fare Card
may be a good alternative, especially since it offers a 50% discount on the trains between Wengen, Kleine Scheidegg, Grindelwald and Jungfraujoch (the Swiss Flexi Pass provides a 25% here).
