Please advise bus fare for single trip Grundelwald to Meiringen or where can I find it .

Also we only have time to do 1 of the 3 funicular trips , Wilderswil to Kleine Scheidegg , or Neisen Funicular , or Funicular Thunersee - Beatenberg ( Neiderhorn ) . Any recommendations on which to select for visitors from Australia .

G'Day Macleod,

The Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) will provide that bus information and tell you whether those cog-wheels/funiculars will be running. If you haven’t used the timetable before it will pay to read the instructions on that page before delving into the timetable.

By "Wilderswil to Kleine Scheidegg" do you mean Wilderswil to Schynigge Platte? If so that doesn't start operating until late May.

Have a look at what Alpenrose666 has to say about closures on this thread www.myswissalps.com/fo rum/topic/gondolarail-access-to-mountains-in-aprilmay-2018

Thanks for reply Rockoyster . Apologies , my error , should be Wilderswil to Schynigge Platte as you suggest . We are travelling in mid June based in Grindelwald . We hope to go to Jungfrau 1 day and Murren another day and on 3rd day trip around Interlaken and Lake Thun OR bus to Meiringen with stops on way back . I went to SSB timetable and can get the bus times but I cannot find fares .

My mistake, I looked at an earlier thread you had posted on and thought you were travelling early May. Bus fare is CHF55.20 full fare from what I can see. That’s for 1/3/2018. You can’t get fares more than 30 days out. See attached.

If you are going to Mürren a very nice circuit to do is to Grütschalp (cable car), Mürren (cogwheel train), Gimmelwald (cable car), Stechelberg (cable car), Lauterbrunnen (bus). From Mürren you can easily visit Schilthorn if you have time. Also Almenhubel Funicular. In between Stechelberg and Lauterbrunnen the bus stops at the Trummelbach Falls. Well worth a look.
