Hi Mona85,

The most obvious route between Lucerne and Interlaken passes Sarnen, Lungern and Brienz and crosses the Brünig Pass. If you want to avoid that, you'd best travel via Bern. It's quite a detour, but no mountain passes are involved. Tips for driving in Switzerland can be found at myswissalps.com/car.

Hi Mona.

If you always seek the flat routes, you still will have hills...Switzerland is not Kansas. And, you miss some of the better scenery. That said, Annika has given the answer.

Personally, I'd take the Brunig Pass route,via Brunig and Meiringen. The driving is really not bad... good road... unless you do it on a weekend afternoon. Then, it slows down a lot.

Hi Mona-

I'm sorry, I did not understand the comment about "take a call."

And, please observe the forum rules. Here is an excerpt:

<<"................. Write in English only; Avoid "text talk" (for example: "r u" instead of "are you"); The name of the country is "Switzerland", not "Swiss"; Your post should be easy to read. Use bullet lists and line breaks; Your posts can be read by everyone, so do not post private data of yourself or others. (e.g. e-mail addresses);.......">>

For many of the forum members, English is not their first language. The messages need to be in clear and simple English, because many people read the threads for information, even if they do not post.

Ohh ok,sorry for that.Take a call as in i would finalise my plan to go ahead with the car rental or not as i have booked cancelleable option.Since my preference is to drive on flat roads i am taking help of this forum for inputs on it.As i am not confident driving on hilly areas,i would take a roundabout even if the route is long.I am exploring the best options suited to me as per my comfort.Thanks.

Hi Mona-

Then, Annika has give the best route.

Have you considered traveling by train? The trains in Switzerland are really nice, frequent, and let you look at the (hilly) scenery.

No question that a car helps with lots of luggage.

Good luck with the driving.
