May I know if major attractions, ticketing offices and fuel stations in Bern, Interlaken, Grindelwald accept credit cards ? Are there any expenses that I should expect to pay for by cash ?

Major attractions, ticket offices & fuel stations will accept credit cards.

That being said, some small restaurants, shops and attractions may not accept them. If you are like me and prefer using credit cards I would still always keep 80-100CHF on me for those times when they won't accept a credit card and the nearest bank is in the next village!
