Well flying has to be the cheapest I would think - go to www.whichbudget.com or www.skyscanner.net to see if any cheapie airlines link Copenhagen with any place in Switzerland - Zurich would be the closest major airport.

Or you can go by train - overnight train leaving Copenhagen at 18:45 and arriving in Basel, Switzerland at 10:30 am - Basel to Interlaken is no more than two hours.

If you can get discounted tickets and are willing to be in a multi-person compartment then the price could be lower than flying if you cannot find a really cheap airline. Go to www.bahn.de/en and look for discounts - but these are sold in limited numbers and can sell out quickly so must be booked in stone weeks or months in advance (no changes nor refunds allowed) - you also save on the cost of a night in a hotel. These are CNL - CityNightLIner trains that are amongst the very best night trains in Europe IME.

For lots of great info on night trains and European trains in general I always spotlight these IMO superb sites - www.seat61.com (great info on discounted tickets); www.ricksteves.com and www.budgeteuropetravel.com.

If you have to pay full fare for the night train it would probbly be more expensive than flying.
