Wheelchair accessibility in Switzerland

Jump to last reply

We have 4 nights in Switzerland (2 in Bernese Oberland area, 2 in Lucerne). There are 4 of us (including one in a wheelchair) and we will be driving up from Italy. I am trying to plan the best trip possible accessibility wise.

BERNESE OBERLAND area (Grindelwald, Wengen, Murren, Lauterbrunnen)
-We'd like to take a day trip up to the Jungfraujoch but how accessible is it? Once up there, is there a deck/platform area(s) for wheelchairs to take in the views? It's an expensive trip and I'm just wondering if it's worth our time and money? Any other mountain excursions you'd recommend over the Jungfraujoch? That seems to be the most popular but is it the best for our situation?

-I know Wengen and Murren are car free so we'd have to park (somewhere by the train station?, does anyone know how much it costs to park?) and take a train into the village. Is the train into the village wheelchair accessible? Once we get into the village, are there hotels that are accessible? How about paths and trails? From what I've read, most people recommend Wengen over the other cities, but is the hassle of parking outside town, and taking a train into town (with a wheelchair) worth it over staying in Grindelwald/Lauterbrunnen?

-As for Grindelwald vs Lauterbrunnen, would you recommend one over the other? What are the main differences? Which one would be best suited for our situation?

-Also, when recommending a particular city to stay in, please take into consideration ease of access to the train stations going up the mountains.

LUCERNE
-We'd like to do the Golden Round Trip, but how accessible is it? Are the boat ride across Lucerne, the train up the mountain, and the cable car/gondola down all accessible? How about when you get to the top of the mountain, is there a deck/platform area(s) to take in the views? Is the trip (as I'm sure it's expensive) worth it for a wheelchair user?
-Any specific areas in Lucerne you'd recommend that have great accessibility (walkways, paths along the lake to take in the views, etc)?

I want to utilize our time in Switzerland as best as I can with the constraints of a wheelchair. Any tips for both of these areas is greatly appreciated!
