Thank you so much for the informative response and for being so quick about it :)
I have done some research and was wondering if you think these plans might be doable and a good plan? If yes, then I could start looking for specific tickets etc to compare prices.
I have about 2.5 days in the Jungfrau region (based in Grindelwald):
Day 1: Grindelwald-Interlaken OST-Lake Thun Boat trip- Explore Thun- Train back to Interlaken
Day 2: Grindelwald-Wengen-Mannlichen-hike to KS- Train up to Jungfrau.
Day 3: Grindelwald-First-Hike to Bachsee-First- Grindelwald before we head to Basel. Or Grindelwald-Bern-Basel.
Will spend the rest of the time probably just spending time in Grindelwald town itself. Furthermore, I have a couple of other questions as well.
1) Is the above itinerary alright? Are the sites repetitive, would love to have a variation in the things to do and see.
2) How long does a round trip to Mt Rigi (including the boat trip) from Lucerne take? If I am leaving Lucerne for Grindelwald about 1500-1600h in the afternoon, will we be able to do the trip in the morning?
3) Is there a need for buses in Basel/Lucerne city to see the sites, assuming we are living in the city centre. If yes, how much are bus rides generally (assuming we do not have a rail pass).
I am trying to see if we could work with just purchasing a 4-days rail pass, as the 8-days one is rather pricey. But will have a calculate regarding the half-fare pass.
