I am flying to Paris with my family consisting of my wife and 3 kids at the end of Nov. RIght now, am looking at planning an itinerary. I have about 2 weeks there and I will definitely spend some time in Paris and some days in London. I am trying very much to include a visit to Switzerland, just to get the sights and some snow at the alps. I have been on a similar trip about 14 yrs ago and back then, I actually flew to Switzerland from London and stayed at Interlaken. That was a great experience which I don't mind to repeat, this time with my kids (eldest being 12 yrs old). The question is, I am trying to figure out the best way (and least costly too) to get to Interlaken and thought I could get some advice here.
I will be arriving in Paris at about 6am on 29 Nov. a few questions:
1) Is there a train from Paris CDG airport to Interlaken? If so, maybe I could take the train and head straight to Interlaken as my first stop. And get a trip up Junfrau before heading back to Paris (or London).
2) or since I am at the airport, should I just take a flight into Zurich?
3) Else, are there trains from within Paris to INterlaken?
4) if I am only going to spend maybe 4 days in Switzerland and only stay in Interlaken + a trip up Junfrau, would it be advisable to get any swiss rail pass? If yes, which one? or do I just get a direct train ticket from paris to Interlaken and then pay for the trip up junfrau separately.
5) Is there a train from Interlaken to London?
Thank you for any advice..
