Hi everyone, I am going to Interlaken in 3 weeks and have not come up with a great itinerary. Can someone please help with advice? Kids are 8, 4 and 2 years old. We will be staying in Interlaken for 4 nights from 24-28 January 2020. I know 😣, hopefully I am not too late to ask for advice.
We will not be skiing as kids are too little. So mainly just enjoying beautiful Mountain View and taking lots of pictures as we love taking family pictures with beautiful backgrounds, and doing some safe sledging or tobogganing. We only have 3 full days to enjoy Switzerland as Interlaken is the only city we visit on this trip. Thinking of 1st day to Jungfraujoch, 2nd day to Schilthorn, 3rd day for sledging/toboganning fun, and last day to Lake Thunz before we fly off.
Any inputs please for:
1. Coming back from Jungfraujoch, should we stop over Grindelwald or somewhere else for beautiful pictures and/or sledging? How long do people normally spend on the top of the mountain, includes lunch up there?
2. Where are the options for easy but fun sledging for smaller kids? I read about Bussalp and Bodmi Arena, also Kleine Scheidegg and Mannlichen area, but not sure which one would be the best for our kids age as I know my kids are not that adventurous unfortunately.
3. Which village would worth visit the most? I heard about Lauterbrunnen, also Grindelwald, and thinking to do it after Jungfraujoch or Schiltorn visit. We are thinking to just do snow play and enjoying the ambience of Switzerland village. So looking for more quieter yet beautiful surrounding houses covered with snow for pictures.
4. Any additional suggestions for our first Switzerland trip with 3 young kids, I would greatly appreciate.
Thank you in advance.
