I'll be based in Kandersteg on June 8th and would like to take a round trip to Kleine Scheidegg (not Jungfraujoch), travelling by rail out via Grindlewald and back via Lauterbrunnen (or vice versa). I'll have a half-fare pass. I'd like to do the trip for as reasonable a cost as possible.
1 Is there any kind of a round trip fare from Kandersteg? I'm aware of the 9 o'clock travel pass at CHF58, but don't know if this would include the Grindlewald - kl Scheidegg - Lauterbrunnen section, and perhaps the planned trip could be done for less than that.
2 If no round trip fare, what would be the cheapest way of doing the trip? I'd appreciate definite costs. (I've found it difficult to find details of the Grindlewald - Lauterbrunnen timetable and fares on line - perhaps you could direct me or let me know the single fare for this section).
3 Would typical tickets allow breaks and sightseeing at say Spiez, Interlaken and Wengen, or would such breaks necessitate booking short single tickets?
4 Any reduction for over 60s?
5 Could this trip be pre-booked and paid for in UK with GBP? If not, can tickets be bought at stations?
