The Charlie Chaplin museum in Vevey could please all of you.

An excursion on the vintage steamers on Lake Brienz and/or Thun is both scenic and relaxing. The watee of Lake Brienz is green, of Lake Thun, blue.

Hi Bunty,

For ideas on what to do in the Jungfrau Region please see this page: ngfrauregion

Unfortunately, your travel dates coincide with the low-season maintenance period for some mountain transport, which means they will be closed. You will still have some options though:

Open/operating while you are there

  • Gondola Grindelwald to First
  • Funicular Interlaken to Harder Kulm
  • Bus Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg
  • Trümmelbach Falls

A bit further afield, the following are also operating/open

  • Aareschlucht (Aare Gorge) - west entrance only; retrace your steps to exit
  • Ballenberg Open Air Museum
  • Gondola Beatenberg to the Niederhorn

Closed/not operating for part of the time while you are there

  • Cable car Lauterbrunnen to Grütschalp - closed 30 April to 4 May; during this time you can get to Mürren by bus to Stechelberg and cable car Stechelberg-Mürren
  • Cable car Mürren to the Schilthorn - closed 23-27 April

Closed/not operating at all while you are there

  • Gondola Grindelwald Grund to Männlichen - closed 3 April to 25 May
  • Cable car Wengen to Männlichen - closed 3 April to 31 May
  • Funicular Mürren to Allmendhubel - closed 9 April to 22 June

For most of the attractions that are open/operating, you can use the search feature of the MySwissAlps website to find further information about them.
