Hi, I'm staying in murren for a few days and then lauterbrunnen for a few days is this a good choice and what's the most scenic waterfall neAr these areas? Trains from the airport and to get around look very expensive but only a 100 pound to hire a car, is a car a good idea??? Best places to see for views in jungfrau region?

Hi Billiejo1 -

Welcome to the forum.

Once you arive at Lauterbrunnen (or Grindelwald) you will have to park your car. Most of the Jungfrau region is car free. So, you'll have to use public transport or private rail services or "ski" lifts.

Look her for discounted rail passes:

For information about the region, look here:

That will get you started.

Please note that October is the end of the Summer season or even is part of the "between season" period when many hotels, cable cars and other services are shut down for maintenance before the ski season begins November is the really "low" season; the ski season begins in mid December.. Check your plans against the timetable for all public transport:

Hello Billiej01,

My advice would be to stay in Mürren or Lauterbrunnen, not both. They're very close together. You'll loose half a day packing and checking out and in of hotels, while either of these villages would be a good base.

Traveling by train is the better choice here. A car isn't very useful in the area. The trains in Switzerland are wonderful, and of course eco-friendly. This topic might be helpful: myswissalps.com/forum/ topic/how-to-travel-cheaper.
