Hi Agrawalm,

I don't know how much luggage you have, but you should be able to manage it.

You can use Google Maps to see a map of the train station when you zoom in (Interlaken Ost). You'll need to walk/run quite quickly but there are plenty of trains going to Zweisimmen if you miss it. Use the timetable to see the schedules between the two towns.

Thanks Chantal and Lucas. Also I am traveling from Zurich to Paris on 24/5. When I am trying to book the train tickets, it shows train strike in France on that date, so will all the trains will be cancelled or partially some trains might be working, any insight will help me.

Is the website allowing you to buy tickets on a strike day?

I would avoid trying to take any train in France on a strike day.

You can try Flixbus- they are probably very busy due to the strike so if you find tickets to buy I would buy them right away.
