Dear Hammer8, both routes can be completed within one day, but if you use the Swiss Card, this requires you to take the shortest route (the one offered to you by the Swiss time table
). This would be the first route via Bern and Spiez (the train doesn't pass Interlaken), taking about 3 hours.
The second route is actually a detour. Just as with the first route, you will eventually end up in Spiez as well and take the same route from there. The section between Lucerne and Interlaken, via Brienz, indeed includes a beautiful ride over the Brünig Pass along several lakes. This route would take 5h31 and can still be completed within one day (in Swiss Card terms, this is one date and not 24 hours). If you'd prefer this option, you would need either a Swiss Pass
or a Swiss Flexi Pass
, which doesn't require you to take the shortest route.
