Hi,

I am considering stay in Interlaken or InnertKirchen on 15th July to 17th July. The reason I went for Innertkirchen is that it is budget, plus we are a family of 8 people, so having a AirBnB apartment is better than a hostel. In interlaken alplodge hostel is the other alternative I am looking at, which is slightly more expensive but easily reachable.

However, Innertkirchen is around 30 mins from Interlaken and I would be spending more to reach to the hostel and come to any attractions so it may not turn that inexpensive.

Is Staying in Innertkirchen a good idea, considering I would visit Jungfraujoch and some of the falls in Lauterburnnen?

Here is the AirBnB link: www.airbnb.co.in/rooms /11139412?checkin=15-04-2016&checkout=17-04-2016&guests=8&s=ztPktF bw

Hi KushalDave.

You are asking for judgements on a very subjective issue based on qualitative information.

Only you can decide which option is better.

Personally, when I travel all the way to Switzerland, wan to maximize my time spent sightseeing, even it it cost a bit more to stay closer to my destination. However, if the cost difference becomes large, then the decision becomes difficult

In your circumstances, I would at least check on towns in the valley, as well as those you mention.

You are in the midst of the scenery, and that has got to be worth something.

Personally I wouldn't want to spend an additional hour of traveling every day. But as Slowpoke says, it's a personal decision. It might be worth it if you save a lot. Interlaken is less picturesque but a lot closer to the places you want to visits. There are affordable hostels there as well. Please see myswissalps.com/interl aken/hotels for a few suggested hotels in all price ranges.
