So, off to the high places, eh? Pray for great weather. I assume that the trip is imminent, so be prepared with warm clothes, sturdy footwear, and hopefully sunglasses. The costs are my guesswork depending on the time of year. I would go to Lauterbrunnen, park in the nice parking garage at the train station, then take the train to Kleine Scheidegg, and up to the Jungfraujoch. The Interlaken Tourist Bureau can give you details on exact costs and if the 13 year old can get a break on the fare. I would guess right now, that parking, train fares to Kleine Scheidegg, and the train to the joch would be in the range of 500-600 francs for the four of you. To Murren and the Schilthorn is cheaper but likely still steep (400 francs). Start both trips as early as you can, as the weather can deteriorate, as the day progresses. To the Schilthorn, go by way of Lauterbrunnen again but go through the village and to the lift at Stechelburg. Its endstation in Murren exits at the lift that goes to the Schilthorn for a quicker change instead of the Lauterbrunnen-Gruetschalp-Murren train and a walk through a lot of the village at Murren. Allows more time at the Schilthorn that way. There is parking at the Stechelburg lift.
The Swiss Franc is currently at a par with the US$.
Do not do either trip unless the weather is pristine.
