Hello everyone,

We are planning to spend 7 days in Interlaken starting with 4th August and would love to do some hikes in the area. I have to mention that we're going to have the Bernese Oberland pass with 5 days unlimited travel and 10 days at 50%, so we can get anywhere in the area.
We have already planned a hike on this path:
First - Bachalpsee - Faulhornweg - Bussalp
but would like to ask if anyone can tell us what are the best hikes to take for some scenic views. I know they are all worth it and unfortunately we cannot take them all. We would like some routes that take up to 6 hours maximum (return included or hikes having a train station or cable car station at the end of the 6 hours) and they can include bikes as well.

Also, can someone tell us please if the Bernese Oberland pass 50% reduction on the Kleine Scheidegg - Jungfraujoch route can be cummulated with the Good Morning Pass?

Thank you.
Annika

Hello Little.skip! I'd recommend First-Schynige Platte (a bit longer than 6 hours in total, but definitely worth your time), (First-)Grosse Scheidegg-Meiringen, hikes near Männlichen/Kleine Scheidegg (you could consider a part of the Eiger trail), (Grütschalp-)Mürren-Gimmelwald, Niederhorn-Waldegg... and so on :-). Interlaken and surroundings are a true paradise for hikers, so it's hard to make recommendations as there are so many wonderful trails. You'll find some more trips in the Bernese Oberland hiking section. Most tourism websites of towns such as Wengen, Grindelwald, Lauterbrunnen and Beatenberg list hiking suggestions too.

No, the Good Morning Ticket is meant for travelers not holding a rail pass. The discounted ticket you can buy with your Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland is the cheapest option for you.

Hello Annika,

Thank you very much for your suggestions, we will study all the trails that you suggested and see which one we can take. As you said, they all sound very interesting to take, so it will be a hard choice. :-)
OK, then we'll use the discount offered by the Pass. Can you please tell me what is the procedure in order to activate a free travel day or 50% discont day on the Pass? Or do we have to use the free travel days first and then the discounted ones? Because we would like to use a day with 50% discount on the first day we arrive.

Thank you again.
Annika

Hi Little.skip. All you have to do is write down the date of your preferred free travel day before boarding the first train, bus or boat that day. The pass will be valid for 15 days in total, and you can decide yourself which ones to use as free travel days; they don't have to be consecutive and you don't have to start off with a free travel day. Have a great trip!
