I am booked in Wengen and on April 29 I have a trip to Jungfraujoch in the morning and an afternoon boat trip to Lake Thun and St. Beatus Caves. I am afraid that I do not have time for all in one day. Also, I have no idea where I find the schedule of boat trips and where the boats are docked. Can you suggest the best way to plan my day trip and where to find the boat schedules?

Hello Lyra and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

It is an ambitious plan. Have a look at this thread - www.myswissalps.com/fo rum/topic/boat-schedule-to-st-beatus-caves.

Also www.beatushoehlen.swis s/en/information-visit/

Get back to us if that doesn't answer your questions.

Hai..

i plan to take boat ride from interlaken to Lake Thun from then train to Brienzer Rothorn.

So from Thun to Brienzer should i take the north part of the lake or south part of the lake (assume both will pass interlaken again) for a good scenary?

Thanks

Hi Shamoza,

It's better to do this in reverse: start in Thun, then take the boat to Interlaken West. Then proceed by train to Brienz for the Brienzer Rothorn. The train is on the northern lake shore and offers very nice views.

If you plan to combine a boat trip with Brienzer Rothorn then maybe you should be taking the boat on Lake Brienz from Interlaken OST to Brienz and return by train? Lake Thun is east of Interlaken and in the opposite direction to Brienz which is at the far eastern end of Lake Brienz east of Interlaken.

When are you travelling BR only operates from 1 June.

Hi Arno/ Rockoyster,

We are staying at Interlaken so anyhow need to start from interlaken to Thun either Boat or train and Straight to BR.And Return from BR to interlaken by Boat. Short stop over at Thun for walkaround. Its worth going to west (train - nice view?) or should i skip it and go to straight to east and BR?

We will be there around mid June.

Thanks all.

The train ride up to Spiez and Thun is a lovely scenic ride. If you are not going that way again (eg going to Bern for example) and you have time then it’s worth doing.

Thanks Rockoyster!

Look likely will do Interlaken - Thun (train), Then boat Thun - Interlaken - Brienz , And BR to Interlaken (train).Hope that sound practical and logic plus cost effective.. Holding Swiss Half Fare 1 month pass.

Brienzer Rothorn is a trip up and down from Brienz so you have to return there to get the train back to Interlaken.

Make sure you check the timetables for boats and trains to ensure the most effective use of your day.

Hi Shamoza. It's a long journey, but doable if you plan well. You can find links to the boat timetables under "More on other websites" at myswissalps.com/boatla kethun/gettingthere and myswissalps.com/boatla kebrienz/gettingthere. I'm not sure if you've already purchased your Swiss Half Fare Cards. If not, this retailer overview might be convenient: myswissalps.com/swissh alffarecard/price.
