We are 2 parents 3 kids ages 12,13 and 17. 3 days only these are the train and cable car needs

Lauterbrunnen train to Wengen and then lift to Mannlichen for hike and train from Kleine S back to Lauterbrunnen. Then cable car from Stechelberg up to Murren

next day Murren to schilthorn and back to Murren. Murren to Allmendhubel

Next day Grindlewald to First and back down then back over to Stechelberg and back up to Murren

any help is appreciated. Not sure which passes would help us Family ? Kids under 15 free? We buy a pass and still pay half fairs?

Hi Carolina2029, welcome to MySwissAlps!

Swiss Half Fare Cards for the adults and the 17 year old, plus a free Swiss Family Card for the younger children, will probably work out best. The Swiss Half Fare Card holders indeed have to buy 50% discounted tickets for all trips; the younger children will travel along for free on all routes. Please read all tabs at myswissalps.com/swissh alffarecard for details.

If you're traveling between April and October, you may alternatively consider a 3 day Jungfrau Travel Pass.It covers quite some trips, although Schilthorn isn't fully covered but 50% discounted, just as with the Swiss half Fare Card.

If you want to make sure which pass is best, you'd best calculate several options as explained at myswissalps.com/train/ ticketspasses/practica l/chooserailpass.

Hi Carolina-

The trail from Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg has some seasonal closings. During ski season it is groomed for walking...just opened on December 17th, but between seasons it has enough snow to render it impassable. Some days it may be closed, based on snow conditions. It opens for the Summer in mid-June.

When are you going?

Unfortunately, the useful web site showing the open/closed status of the various trails in the area has been modified, and I have not yet found an equivalent. Perhaps Arno or Annika know a new URL, or can suggest a good way to check trail status, until I can find some equivalent source.
