Thank you Annika! We still undecided whether to go for Half Fare Card or Bernese Oberland Regional Pass. We will have our car with us and the plan itinerary is as below
Tuesday 12/7 - Drive to Lucerne from Colmar. Sightseeing Old Town and if we have time we plan to do Golden Round trip. Overnight in Lucerne (Radisson Blu)
Wednesday 13/7 - Check out from Radisson Blu and drive to Ballenberg Open Museum. Spend half a day there. Afterwards drive to Grindelwald. We will stay in Grindelwald for 3 nights (Hotel Bodmi)
Thursday 14/7 -Jungfraujoch (weather permitting) -half day. Then sightseeing Grindelwald
Friday 15/7 - Lauterbrunnen, Murren, Wengen (is this possible in one day?) - no hiking but mainly nature photography +/- Schilthorn
Saturday 16/7 - Check out from Hotel Bodmi early then drive to Lake Blausee. Spend couple of hours there then drive to Zermatt. Check in Chalet Hotel Schonegg in Zermatt. We will stay here for 3 nights. Sightseeing Zermatt after check in hotel.
Sunday 17/7 - Matterhorn (weather permitting but not sure how far is Gornegrat from the hotel - do we need to take train from Zermatt or just walk?). Is Klein Matterhorn doable on the same day too?
Monday 18/7 - Walk around maybe do easy trails with the kids.
Tuesday 19/7 - Check out from Chalet Hotel Zermatt then drive to Chillon castle. Spend couple of hours there (not planning to go inside the castle but mainly taking photos). Then from there drive to Reims for overnight stay before crossing the Eurotunnel the following day back to UK.
Which pass do you think would suits us best? I was thinking if we have some sort of pass we will park our car at the base hotel then travel around with public transport. Is it worth getting Tell Pass as well? Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
