<<"and we will rent a car, ">>

After you decide on specific dates for various locations, double check on that. A car is almost useless in the Jungfrau region. You will use it to drive to Lauterbrunnen or Grindelwald ( 20-30 minutes) and park it. At least parking is pretty cheap, in contrast to the main cities where parking is quite expensive.

There are car rental offices in Interlaken.

Of course, with a lot of kids, you have to buy a lot of tickets, but only rent one car. ;-)

There are some low cost or free ways to add kids to a Swiss Travel Pass.....Arno and Annika can help

Titlis is a long trip from Interlaken .... time it out by train and car before you decide.

You can get drive times from most map programs.

I like via Michelin for Europe, but there are plenty.

Hi Buturki,

One of the passes you have already been looking at will be best:

The above pages explain how these passes work and what's included. Please take a look at it and see what fits your plans best. Click "Price" on either of these pages to find out where to buy.

I would not rent a car for a stay in Interlaken. It's the transport hub of trains, buses and boats in the Bernese Oberland. You can go anywhere with public transport, but a car does not get you far in the Jungfrau region. Furthermore, children travel along for free with the Swiss Half Fare Card and for just CHF 30 per child in case of the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland.
