My wife and I will be spending the last two weeks of August in Switzerland.
We will be spending the 1st week in the Haslital area with other family members and will, throughout this time, have a rented car and be using the Haslital pass.
During the 2nd week we plan to start Hiking from Meiringen over to Grindelwald, maybe do the Schynige Platte to Grindelwald Hike while there, from Grindelwald to Lauterbrunnen with an ascent to the Jungfraujoch on the way, on towards Murren and Trummelbach Falle before returning north to Lauterbrunnen. On all of these routes we will probably be using the services of either train, cable car or both.
During the rest of our stay we plan to visit any or all of Bern, Luzern, Basel and Zurich, from where our flight leaves.
It seems logical to purchase a local pass similar to the Haslital one, but I understand there are two options: the Berner Oberland Regional Pass or the more specific Jungfraubahn pass. We will also be needing a Swiss Rail Pass for the rest of out trip as mentioned above (Swiss Pass/Flexi-Pass/Half-fare/etc.).
Which combintaion of tickets will be the best for us considering both our hike in the Jungfrau area and the rest of our trip later on?
Thank you very much for your help,
