Quite frankly I am now wondering if a pass makes sense for us at all. We will be arriving to Lauterbrunnen by car from Germany. We are staying in Wengen for just 3 nights and plan to do some hiking in the area. I only wanted the pass for some of the mountain rail/cable cars as a way to cover more ground and to have the option of an easy way back after a long day of hiking. But I see that Wengen to Kleine Scheidegg is only a 2 1/2 hour hike. So I wonder if just buying a ticket or 2 as needed is the more economical way to go. Any thoughts/suggestions are appreciated. There are 4 of us traveling so 4 passes gets expensive and may be more than we need.
I did find this on Trip Advisor:
This was my first visit to the Alps and although I was enchanted with all the cable car rides to mountain summits, I was not enchanted with the prices. After many hour of research on the internet I hit on what was a perfect solution. Take the cable car from Grindelwald to Mannlichen (about 80 CHF for a family of 4) and walk down. The cable car ride is about 40 minutes which we found more than enough to give us the experience. The walk down takes about 3 hours. The scenary was awesome
