We are wanting to do a day to include Grindelwald first then go on to Lauterbrunnen traveling from Brienz. I have been looking at options and am thoroughly confused as there is no direct line between Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen. Is there a round robin ticket I can get that would take us Brienz Grindelwald then up to Kleine Scheidegg and down to Lauterbrunnen or would we be financially better going to Grindelwald by train taxi to Lauterbrunnen then train back to Brienz. There are 3 of us all with half fare cards.

Thanks again

Some notes on the railway geography of the so called 'Jungfrau region'. Hopefully this will help you understand

It is then your choice to travel either over the mountains (slow) or via the valleys (fast)

The BOB railway (blue and yellow trains) runs from Interlaken Ost to Zweilütschinen, where it divides into two branches, one up the valley to Lauterbrunnen and one up the other valley to Grindelwald.

The WAB railway (green and yellow trains) runs over the mountains Grindelwald - Kleine Scheidegg - Wengen - Lauterbrunnen

To travel between Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen and vice versa, you can either go Grindelwald - Kleine Schedegg - Wengen - Lauterbrunnen or Grindelwald - Zweilütschinen - Lauterbrunnen.

Another option in addition to those 1960man has identified is a Grindelwald - Männlichen - Wengen. Only problem is the cable car Grindelwald - Männlichen is not operating but a replacement bus service comes into operation on 22 June if that is any use to you.

Perhaps this graphic may help you visualise the options.

Hi Sharon,

In addition to the above information: you can find how to get from anywhere to anywhere by filling out the locations in the timetable at metable. Whether there is a direct line doesn't matter, it will show you where to change.

Thanks for these clarifications possibly the Kleine Scheidegg route which although longer is very scenic. Went that way last year to Jungfrau but did not realise it could be done separately as a standalone route
