>> I am planning for Luzern 2 days and Interlaken (Lauterbrunnen) 4 days in last week of April. I have plans for Mt Rigi round trip, Mt Pilatus, Jungfrau , Interlaken and in and around villages.
The cable car between Weggis and Rigi Kaltbad will be closed for maintenance between 3-27 April 2018, but you can still get up and back via the trains from Vitznau and Arth-Goldau.
The cogwheel train from Alpnachstad to Pilatus Kulm is closed for the winter, and will not recommence operating until the beginning or middle of May, depending on the weather. You can still go up and back on the cable way from Kriens though.
The train to the Jungfraujoch operates all year.
For getting to Mürren, the cable car from Lauterbrunnen to Grütschalp will be closed for maintenance from 30 April to 4 May 2018. During that time, you can get to Mürren via cable car from Stechelberg.
The cable car to the Schilthorn, which is free with the Swiss Travel Pass, will be closed for maintenance between 23-27 April 2018.
>> Do you recommend to use pass to roam around Interlaken town?
Unless you want to do shopping, I would avoid spending any time in Interlaken at all. It is a good transport hub, and has lots of hotels and shops. However, the general ambience and scenery cannot in any way compare with the villages of the Jungfrau Region. If you do spend time there, you can get everywhere on foot. And if you happen to take a town bus, the fare will be minimal.
