We , a mother with 2 daughters will be staying at The Beausite Hotel in Interlaken from 5 - 9 Dec.
Coming from Paris to Interlaken - Planning to do Grindelweld,Jungfrau, Lauderbrunen town, Lake Brienz, Mt Titilis, Mt Pilatus (one of these, depending on weather) , Rhine Falls (or should be do this from Zurich?) and of course around Interlaken town. I am so bad with geography, is my "grouping" correct? I want to maximise the usage of a 4 day 2-country or flexi pass. Is it too ambitious?
The hotel does give us a free Guest Card which I understand can take us free to some places and we get discounts for some places.
From the website link:
"Guest Card, which entitles you to a range of discounts in the whole Jungfrau Region.
The Guest card in additionally entitle the holder to free travel on
public transport within Zone 80 and to Iseltwald, Saxeten and
Oops, can someone who has used the card before enlighten me on this? Like can I safely put aside 1 or 2 days to maximise on places of interest with this card? This will help me strategise on which Swiss pass to buy.
We will be in Zurich from 9 to 11 Dec - before proceeding to Salzburg.
Any recommendations for value hotel near the HBF because we intend to take the earliest train to Salzburg on 11 Dec. All the hotels near the HBF seems to be so expensive!
I know that it all seems a bit of a hodge potch itinerary - - just a macro plan - very open to suggestions.. it is really stressful for a first timer - trying to plan for this and also what is the suitable pass to use? I know that there is a worksheet from SBB that is supposed to help - I tried, but I am really quite lost in there!
Oh yes, anyone knows if it is possible to travel by night from Interlaken to Salsburg? I tried to google .. apparently it would be challenging ?.. that was why I decided to reschedule our 6 nights in Interlaken to include 2 nights in Zurich.
Thanks a lot!
