Many thanks to the curators of MySwissAlps. This is simply best travel-related site I have ever seen. My family of 4 (2 adults, 1 child 13 yrs, 1 child 17 yrs) will be in Switzerland June 30 - July 7. We arrive in Zurich, will visit friends for 2 days in nearby Area and then spend 6 days in Wengen/Bernese Oberland. We fly out of Geneva. We are planning various hikes each day in the Oberland (weather-dependent), and will want to go up to Schilthorn in order to hike down, and maybe Jungfaujoch. My question is:
Would we do better to rent a car (quoted for the week at CH 250) for travel from Zurich to Lauterbrunnen, park it for the 6 days while we hike around Wengen, and then use again from Lauterbrunnen to Geneva, and pay for individual cable cars/cogwheels in the Oberland, or skip the car and buy rail passes? If rail passes, then would the Swisspass or the Bernese Oberland Pass make most sense?
Apologies if this kind of question is answered elsewhere on the site. It's a bit dizzying with all options available!
