Could anyone give me some advice - I'm very confused!
We are going on holiday this August, driving from the UK to Lauterbrunnen. I am taking my two children aged 6 & 8, and my elderly mother, and staying at Camping Jungfrau. Myself and the two children are staying for three weeks in total, but my mother is flying home after 7 days, and my husband is flying out to join me for the remaining two weeks. Given that we have a car, so getting to and from the airport is not a problem, which rail pass is the best to go for? As I understand it, for the first week my mother and I have the choice of the Jungfraunbahn Pass, which gives unlimited travel in a relatively smaller area, or the Berner Oberland Pass, which gives 3 days unlimited travel and 4 days reduced price, but covers a larger area and also covers the boats on the Thuner and Brienzer See. Would both of these passes cover my two children or do I pay extra for them? For the second two weeks, I understand there is a 15 day Berner Oberland Pass, but is there a Jungfraubahn Pass that covers two weeks, or is it simply a case of buying one for each week? And is it cheaper to buy these passes in advance or do I wait until we get there?
Thanks in advance!
