Hello hazmel, and welcome! Your Swiss Card
will grant a 50% or 25% discount on many mountain railways and cable cars in the Lauterbrunnen area, so this may suffice. Please take a look at the map linked to on the Swiss Card page
, which gives an exact overview of the Swiss Card's validity in this region.
If you plan to travel very intensively on some days, you could supplement your Swiss Card with either a Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland
or a Jungfrau Railways Pass. The Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland is valid during either 7 or 15 days, and contains either 3 or 5 days of free travelling within the Bernese Oberland on days which don't have to be consecutive. On the remaining days, a 50% discount applies (but your Swiss Card provides comparable discounts). The Jungfrau Railways Pass
allows 6 consecutive days of free travel within the Jungfrau region.
I doubt whether purchasing one of these passes is more economical than simply using the discounts your Swiss Card offers. Only if some long and expensive journeys will be made, this might be the case. Exact calculations
, based on a detailed list of your travel plans, would have to be made to figure this out.
