Switzerland for family with seniors and kid

Jump to last reply

Dear Fodorites
This is my first post so maybe I am not posting in the right section or in right way.
If that's the case please excuse me!

I am planning a trip to Switzerland with my parents (60+)
and my wife and 3 year old from Netherlands.

We wish to enjoy scenic alps (bernese oberland?) with some scenic train rides.
No hiking and museums possible unfortunately.

I am thinking of buying Swiss 4day rail pass and don't
want (also can not afford) to spend much more than that on travel.
So no Jungfrau or etc .

Can you please advise on

1.what should be my base? I have narrowed on some accommodations in
Biel,Zurich, Grindelwald (in ascending order of cost)

2. the trip is going to be 4 nights/5 days so is rail pass (4 days 193 EUR)
worth? I am planning to stay at one place and travel to Lucerne,Zweimissen, Lauterbrunnen etc

3. Is there a cheap way to go from Paris to Basel other than French trains?

4. Any suggested itinerary will be gratefully acknowledged

Thanks and regards
SM
