Berner Oberland Pass (my brain out of control)

Jump to last reply

I have read constantly and my brain is swelling by the minute.
We have 1st class Swiss Passes purchased and we are staying in Lucerne for 2 nights, Lauterbrunnen for 5 nights and Chur for one night and taking the Bernina Express.

I read comments on the Berner Oberland Pass and I am confused as to whether we need to purchase this BO pass being we already purchased the Swiss Pass.

Our wish list while in Lauterbrunnen:
Schilthorn; Jungfraujoch; Brienz Rothorn Bahn; Rick Steves hike suggestion Jungfrau (East) side of the Lauterbrunnen page 196.
PalenQ’s suggestion: Lauterbrunnen-Grutschalp-Murren-Schilthorn-Gimmelwald-Stechelberg-Lauterbrunnen;
Etc; Plus--Everything we can fit in during the visit.

All this reading on “up to this” and “down to this” has my head spinning because I can not totally place in my mind what it looks like.

Questions:
1. Does the tourist office in Lauterbrunnen have a brochure that spells it out in a simple way?
2. When we arrive at a gondola does it show on a sign whether we need to purchase additional ticket?
3. Maybe I am worrying to much, but I want to use our time wisely. Who would not want to do everything?

Hope you can help me.
Thanks!!
