Tickets for Interlaken<->Schilthorn

Jump to last reply

Ok, I am still reading books and have looked at Schilthorn website,etc. Best I can tell, there are two routes to Schilthorn, multiple legs to them:
1. Interlaken (train) Lauterbrunnen (cable car) Grutschalp (train) Murren (cable car) Schilthorn

2. Interlaken (train) Lauterbrunnen (yellow bus) 'Luftseilbahn' Stechelberg (cable car) Gimmelwald-> Murren-> Schilthorn

Question 1 - can one go up one route and down the other route? (and is either one better to go up vs. down?)

Question 2 - if coming down, can one debark the cable car at Murren, walk to Gimmelwald, then reboard the next avail. cable car to return to Stechelberg?

Question 3 - if one has a Swiss Half-fare Card, is there one single ticket that can be purchased that covers all the segments, or does one
- buy train ticket to Lauterbrunnen
- then buy bus ticket to Stechelberg
- then buy cable car ticket to Schilthorn

Question 4 - same question as #3 but with Swiss Pass

Question 5 - is there one agent / ticket office in Interlaken to buy (all) tickets needed for this trip? or does one buy each part at the beginning of that stage of the excursion?
(perhaps you can tell I'm not a fan of frequent trips to a ticket window).
Thank you for your assistance.
