I just booked a flight from FLL to CDG with an AF connecting to Basel (April 20, 2018). My itinerary is: Arrive BSL at 1800 (no checked-in luggage) so hoping to catch the 1857 train to Lauterbrunnen as our base for 4 nights. We are staying at Camp Jungfrau.We are a group of 5- Me, hubby and 2 children ages 5 and 7; and my sister. we plan to do the slow and easy hikes first day- maybe hike to Trummelbach falls, take the cable to Murren, and hike to Grimmelwald after lunch. On the 22nd visit on the last day of Shilthorn's opening) and I've read that a fairly easy hike would be to take the Allmend-Hubel Funicular from Murren and then hike down through the alpine meadows. Day 3 would be the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe if weather permits and Day 4 would be just be to Lucerne before we leave for late train to Basel and then leave next day.
My questions are:
1. What pass would it be better for us? Swiss pass, bernese pass or the half card? we are planning to visit other the alp villages (wengen, Stechelberg, etc) if the weather is clear, if not- ditch Lauterbrunnen and then we head cities eg Lucerne etc?
2. I've a somewhat idea what t do when staying at the Jungfrau region but would need help some ideas or guidance on plan B if weather does not cooperate.
Many thanks in advance!!
