My husband and I are finishing our month long Europe trip with a stay in Spiez, Switzerland. We are arriving on Sunday from Milan to Spiez and have booked a hotel there. I need help with deciding whether or not to get a travel pass and what kind, or if we should just do point-to-point tickets. I've spent hours looking at different options and still feel lost. Any insight would be appreciated. Here is what we would like to do:
Sunday, 8/6- Arrive in Spiez at 13:30. We have some interest in taking the boat on Lake Thun, but the passes I've looked at only include that if we get a 5 or 6 day pass. We are only here for 4 days.
Monday, 8/7- Take train to Interlaken and visit Murren, Gimmelwald, Lauterbrunnen, Grindelwald (How long does this take? hopping between these towns...5 hours? 10 hours? Should we combine some of them with the trip to Jungfrau?
Tuesday, 8/8- Take train to Interlaken and visit Jungfrau
Wednesday, 8/9- Travel to Geneva for flight on Thursday to Dublin. Would like to take a scenic train there if possible, could do stops along the way but will have luggage.
I've looked at the Jungfrau pass, as well as the Berner/Ob, but the former seems like it's not enough coverage and the latter TOO much coverage. Also, we need to get to Geneva on the 9th. Should this just be purchased separately?
THANK YOU for any insight/advice.
