>> when I llook for apartments in airbnb they show addressees so get confused
Look up the address in Google Maps, then look for nearby transport. Railway stations and bus stops (as well as cable car stations etc) are shown in Google Maps if you zoom in close enough.
If you hover over the icon for a bus stop, it will tell you the official name of the bus stop and the route number/s of the buses that stop there. Use that information in the Swiss Timetable (to which you have already been given the link) to find out about when the bus runs.
If you will need to rely on a bus, find out what time the first and last bus of the day runs, how frequently it runs during the day, and what the service is like on weekends. Do all that before booking your accommodation.
>> 2.Which of thesw villages have train linea for easy commuting
Which villages are you referring to? Those in the Jungfrau Region?
Grindelwald is reached by train, and has a town bus service. The town bus service only runs until early evening, so staying within easy walking distance of the railway station is a good idea.
Wengen is reached by train and is car free. Most hotels will pick up guests and their luggage from the station on the day of arrival, and drop them off again on the day of departure. Check before booking, or make sure to book a hotel within easy walking distance of the station.
Mürren is reached by first getting a train to Lauterbrunnen. Then, for the rest of the journey, you have two options:
- Cable car up to Grütschalp (on the cliff above Lauterbrunnen), then train along the top to Mürren
- Bus along the floor of the Lauterbrunnen Valley to Stechelberg, then cable car from there up to Mürren.
With luggage, I would prefer the first option.
Lauterbrunnen is reached by train, and has a good village bus service, running half-hourly from early morning until late at night. Look for accommodation within easy walking distance of the railway station or a bus stop.
