Hi Arno and Annika,

Do I have to bring CHF only or Euro is also accepted everywhere in Switzerland? What about US$?

Another thing, If I am not going to Schilthorn, is it still worth going to Engelberg specially from Interlaken to spend a day there or it is just another mountain village like Grindlewald and Lauterbrunnen which I will cover to and from Jungfrau.

One last: can you please suggest closest Chocolate and Cheese factory tour near Interlaken where I can take the kids for fun? I have a 3 day unlimited Swiss Travel Pass.

Thanks (you guys are doing a great job by the way)

Hi Ash,

Regarding the currency, that's explained here: myswissalps.com/swissfranc.

The village of Engelberg is not extremely pretty. The monastery is pretty though, and there's cheese making to watch. There's a chocolate show at Schuh restaurant in Interlaken.
