Hi Neeha,

Either a 4-day Swiss Travel Pass or Swiss Half Fare Card will work. The Swiss Travel Pass is more convenient as you don't have to buy tickets for each trip. Whether the Swiss Half Fare Card is cheaper can be calculated.

Both passes can be printed at home as explained in your other thread. Be sure to do so in time as it takes 1-3 business days to receive them through e-mail.

Places to visit near Grindelwald are listed here: myswissalps.com/ grindelwald/ activities. A boat ride on Lake Brienz or Lake Thun would fit into your way back.
