We are a couple traveling to Switzerland from Germany by a rental car. It is our first time in Switzerland so we are excited:)) We are going to stay in car free village in Wengen for 5 days. Here is what we have planned for this trip .

Could you help us know what travel pass in best for us to purchase? which pass would make it the most cost efficient considering the activities we want to do ?

day 1, August 14 :Park the car near the train station, go to the hotel

day 2: Visit Top of Europe , Jungfraujoch and see all the highlights + the snow fun park

Day 3: Trip to Trummebach Falls

Day 4: take a cable car to Mannlichen to see the Eiger, Monch ,... summits

Day 5: Drive (if it is possible to drive) to Aargorge & a boart trip on Lake Brienz

Day 6: Drive back to Germany

Hi MariamUg and welcome to MySwissAlps!

Good choice with Wengen - very popular option!

The station you would park at is Lauterbrunnen and from there you will train to Wengen and then to a hotel there.

Keep an eye on the weather and don't go to Jungfraujoch if it is cloudy etc. Keep your plans open and switch the days you go based on the weather.

There is a lot of time to do Trummelbach Falls, have a look here for other activity options around Lauterbrunnen.

Yes, you can drive to Aare Gorge and Lake Brienz on this day.

As for rail passes - You probably want the Jungfrau Travel Pass. The Jungfrau Travel Pass offers ticket less travel for most destinations in the area (just show the pass and go). The 5 day pass will cover your boat trip on Lake Brienz, the trip to Mannlichen and most of the way to Jungfraujoch (100% covered until Eigergletscher and then 50% the ticket the rest of the way to Jungfraujoch) and of course many other trips in the area.
