Me and my wife along with our 3 year old daughter, visited Switzerland in Sep 2017, from Dubai. First of all thanks to "myswissalps", I planned each and everything based on the information provided on this website. And my wife could not believe; if it's my first ever visit to this country. My next trip is in April to Austria (hoping to find the similar website to plan trip).
Day 1: arrived from Dubai to Zurich and then moved to Interlaken, via Bern. The staff was so kind, she actually prepared a commercial comparison for me based on my itinerary. I ended up purchasing the Swiss Half Fare Card. The rest of the day, we spend nearby our hotel in Interlaken. I strongly feel I should have stayed either in Wengen or Mürren rather than staying in Interlaken.
Day 2: stroller friendly walk from from Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg. We simply followed the instructions in the below link. And then we head down to Grindelwald from KS and spend some leisure time there.
Day 3: stroller friendly walk from Grütschalp to Winteregg and then up to Mürren via train, then hike down to Gimmelwald from Mürren and then to Stechelberg via cable car. From Stechelberg to Trummelbach falls by bus and then walk down to Lauterbrunnen valley. It was the most beautiful part of my trip. Mürren, Gimmelwald, Lauterbrunnen valley, Staubbach fall.... everything was simply amazing.
Day 4: day trip to Brienzer Rothorn via steam train and boating on beautiful Lake Brienz. Then moved in opposite direction to Bern for a day trip. We explored the charming city of Bern on foot. From Bern station to the rose garden (almost an hour walk) and then back by bus. The view from the rose garden is beautiful.
Day 5: trip to Mount Titlis and a short trip to picturesque town of Luzern on way back from Mount Titlis. Going up to the mount Titlis from Engelberg is half the fun. Interlaken to Engelberg is a long beautiful train ride, but we never got bored, made many friends on way to points, mostly tourists like us, discussing our plans and itineraries. It’s always a good experience to interact with people of different culture, hence don’t hesitate to take long trips, if you are easy to talk.
