Interlaken, trains and mountains

Jump to last reply

Hello all. We are stopping in Interlaken for two nights this summer. We are staying in Wilderswil. I hope to have most of the first afternoon and evening and then a full day in the area to explore. I want to be in the mountains, hubby loves trains and the kids (17 and 22) want to ride bikes.

At this point, it looks as though going up the Jungfraujoch is about $200 per person, without any kind of rail pass or half-price card. Since we are in Switzerland for just a couple of days, we don't have any of the above. Am I correct about that?

However, it looks as though getting around Lauterbrunnen, Murren and Grindlewald is much more reasonably priced. What about Kleine Scheidegg? The Eiger? I have looked at maps, travel guides, websites etc. and I am throughly confused.

The kids want to rent bikes and ride around. Where does one do that in the area? Not mountain biking straight down steep hillsides, more flat biking next to lakes is what I am thinking.

Thank you for your collective knowledge and wisdom.
