We are a family of 5(2 adults, 3 children under 16) travelling to Europe this summer, and are planning our 2-3 days in Switzerland. I have picked up many useful tips from the forum but with 3 children I can't seem to get a clear picture of which pass is the most economical for us! Here is our plan:
Day 1: Basel to Lauterbrunnen, walk through the valley to Stechelberg where we are staying-if the weather is good go up to Schilthorn this day (best option for us), if weather looks better for the next day walk around Murren/grindelwald etc.
Day 2: Schilthorn early if not possible the day before, picnic lunch (any suggestions?), train to Interlaken, boat to Spiez (if the weather is good), train to Broc for chocolate tour - we are staying with friends in neuchatel this night
Day 3: tour around with our friends, train from Neuchatel to Basel
I know there is so much more to see in Switzerland, but we will just have to plan another trip to enjoy that another time.
Here are my questions: the discounts for children to go up the Schiltorn with a pass will save us a lot of money, but which pass is actually the best for us with this itinerary? The excel spreadsheet is excellent but with 3 children to account for I couldn't seem to make it work for me. Thanks in advance for your help!
