Two friends and I are traveling to Switzerland late September and plan to stay about a week and not renting a car. We fly into Zurich and then go to Bern to stay with a friend for a couple of nights. From there we'll spend the rest of the time in the Berner Oberland area, possibly lodging in Lauterbrunnen but also going to: Interlaken, Brienz (by boat and/or train), Ballenburg open air museum, Kleine Scheidegg, Gimmelwald (not Grindewald), Murren, Schilthorn, Mannlichen, Allmendhubel. We are open to other suggestions. We'd like to do some relatively easy hikes.
Will we have trouble finding lodging that has 3 single beds in one room?
We have not done train travel before, so need help deciding which Rail Pass to purchase and if we should purchase ahead of time. Next we will be going to Levanto/Cinque Terre Italy by train, staying 4 nights and then taking a train to Milan to fly home. Will we be able to get a decent train connection to Levanto from Lauterbrunnen, or should we be in a different town our last night in Switzerland?
On a previous visit to myswissalps.com, I thought I saw a link that offered a service of creating an itinerary, etc., but I can't seem to find it now. Is there such a service, and if so, what is the fee structure for this service?
We are grateful for any hints/advice/help you can give us. Thank you!
