Hi 3travelers, and welcome to the forum! You managed to create a nice and diverse itinerary. I think it's wise to limit yourself to two base towns. Both the Jungfrau region and Zurich have enough to offer to enjoy yourselves for a couple of days (and a lot longer :-)).
As for your questions: the choice between Lauterbrunnen and Interlaken is a very personal one. Pros and cons of both towns have been discussed in this forum topic
, and that may help you decide.
You've selected great day trips for your stay in the Jungfrau region. It's hard to say what not to miss, as there's so much to see and do. If weather is fine, I'd personally prefer a visit to a viewing point such as Schynige Platte, Brienzer Rothorn or Männlichen over the open air museum or castles. But again, that's personal, and the museum and castles can be great for kids.
While in Lucerne, consider a boat ride over the lake, the famous Kappel bridge near the railway station and the town centre itself. If weather isn't that good, the glacier garden would be nice, although part of it is an indoor museum as well.
Since you'll be making rather short and regional trips mainly, the Swiss Half Fare Card
may be the most economical solution. The Swiss Pass
would be best if you like the idea of unlimited traveling and being able to go wherever you like. The Swiss Flexi Pass
is kind of a combination between the Swiss Half Fare Card and the Swiss Pass: offering free travel on some days, and reduction on the other days. Our FAQ
indicate how to make your calculations.
I hope this gets you started! Best regards,
