we just want to enjoy a walk in the beautiful scenery without it costing the earth.... we are a family of 5- 2 adults, and a 14, 16, and 17 year old. We are staying in Interlaken for 4 days and we have our own car.
Thank you

Hi, I planned to stay in
lauterbrunnen- 2 days,
wengen- 2 days

Are there any most memorable hiking trails near these destinations?.
That too we are looking for easy hikes without any expenses.
We didn't have any hike experience so far.

Hello Charise and dhivya,

In general, the hiking trails a bit higher up the mountains offer better views. You either need to walk to a start or end point, or use public transport. However, it's certainly possible to do some great hiking without spending too much. This list of hikes in the Bernese Oberland is a good starting point. Each hike has a detailed map and information about how to get there, so you can exclude the ones that are not near a regular train station covered by a Swiss Pass or a parking place. Even if you don't have a pass, a single point-to-point ticket for a regular train to a place near your base would not be overly expensive.

Some examples: the Lauterbrunnen valley is a good place for hiking, starting in either Lauterbrunnen or Stechelberg. Another one is the Panorama Trail Hasliberg. It offers great views. It starts in Reuti, which is a short and inexpensive cable car ride from Meiringen. I think it's about CHF 8 per person if you don't have a pass for reductions. It ends at the train station of Brünig-Hasliberg. Of course you can walk up there from Meiringen as well. Walking from Wilderswil to Lauterbrunnen is also enjoyable. No cable cars required there either.

I hope this gets you started!

Hello Charise, You can drive up to Lauterbrunnen and take a leisurely hike up the valley of 72 waterfalls or if you need more of a challenge take the hike from Grindlewald to Kleine Scheidegg. There you can view the Eiger North Wall from the Clint Eastwood movie "Eiger Sanction". Websites lauterbrunnen.ch, kleine scheidegg.ch. Have a great trip you will love it.
