Hello we are planning to visit Swiss (bernese oberland area) and perhaps innsbruck in austria during mid may to Jun period this year. we need some help on planning what kinda travel rail tickets most cost economical for us (3 adults + 1 9yr child), we most likely would arrive zurich airport to either first to swiss alps (interlaken and up to the higher grounds) for perhaps 1 week, then travel to innsbruck for perhaps 4-5 days before heading back to zurich to return home.
Given this kinda itinerary, which options would be best?
1) swiss + austria pass
2) swiss pass and get individual ticket to innsbruck (but alittle confused because I somehow read that we can travel to some parts of austria with swiss pass? perhaps get reservation ticket??)
3) individual tickets (from zurich to interlaken, then alps (like wengen, murren) , interlaken to innsrbuck and back to zurich)
4) Swiss transfer ticket??
Also next question would be, do you think its a good hiking time for mid may -jun to swiss alps? which place is best to stay perhaps for a week as a base (like a good resort for family), we would liike to visit First and Kleine Schedeigg... not sure if Murren or Wengen or other parts like Grindelwald, perhaps Lauterbrunnen (considering the high travel cost to move around up there) where would be good to stay... our budget is about 150CHF per night for 3 adults 1 child, do u think its good enough for some nice lodge? where can we find them?
Would appreciate your utmost advice
Thanks & God bless
