If you fill out a trip From Zurich to Gimmelwald in the timetable you'll see these comments once you get to the ticket prices: "Price information is not available for the entire trip. Please take note of the portions of the trip which can be calculated. The following route(s) for the requested journey are available: ZÜRICH HB - LAUTERBRUNNEN
So, it gives you the price to Lauterbrunnen. The additional price of the final leg to Gimmelwald can be found on the website of the local railway company: Jungfraubahnen
Please note that the default price shown for Zurich - Lauterbrunnen is the discounted price of a single trip, and that's CHF 36.10. If you unselect "Half-Fare travelcard" and select the double arrow instead of the single one, you'll see the full fare of a return trip to Lauterbrunnen: CHF 144.40. In additional to that, you need a return ticket Lauterbrunnen - Gimmelwald which is about CHF 30 (I took the round trip price via Mürren as Gimmelwald is not listed on the Jungfraubahnen website; it's probabably a bit cheaper if you take the direct route both in- and outbound). So the total price would be 174.40 per person. A rail pass would normally not be economical for just one trip, but you may have reviewed the 2-for-1 offer Wandermann referred to. A 4-day Swiss Saver Pass for 2 people is only CHF 235 now, so that's 117.50 per person. It includes your entire trip for free, and you have 3 more days of free traveling. Please check the associated forum topic
, and go to the Swiss Pass page
to find the best reseller on the right side of that page. The pass needs to be purchased in advance through the buttons "Go to website" you'll find on that page.
There is a manned luggage department at the Zurich rail station, and there are lockers as well.
