I have seen pictures and this hike looks amazing! But unfortunately I can't find a lot of information about the length or level of difficulty of the hike. Our time in Interlaken is very limited so I want to do as much of the planning now as I can so we don't waste any time. We will be there the first week in June.
We would like to go to Jungfrau on Saturday 1st June due to an special offer for Spanish people but with this offer is compulsary to make the reservation on-line and then print the tickets in paper (it is not possible to buy the tickets at the station).
We have contacted the hotel but they have told us it is not possible to do it at the hotel.
As weather predictions can vary a lot from one day to another, it is complicated to reserve it before leaving home.
So, could anybody inform us about if there is any place at Interlaken where we could book and print the tickets or how could we solve the problem?
in some cities/towns I saw advertisements of photographers in the main streets. Does anyone know is there something like that in Interlaken? We would like to order a 1 hour photo session in that region. Do any agancies in Interlaken have such service?
I am trying to book a train ticket from Zurich to Interlaken however, the website is only giving me dates with no times. Can you buy a roundtrip ticket and use that ticket at whichever time you'd like?
We'll be traveling by car through Germany and Switzerland and want to stay in the car-free village of Murren. Any suggestions on where we can leave the car safely (and inexpensively) for 2 nights?
Thanks very much.
Please help. I have listed my itinerary above. Wish to spend 3 days in Interlaken as our hub for day trips of Berner Oberland region including Grimmelwald, Murren, Jungfraugh Top of World trip. Then to Paris from Interlaken Ost on morning of 30.08.2013. I am confused about which transportation tickets are best and most economical that will accommodate our needs. Two adults traveling together at all times. I have been looking at Swiss Pass, Point to Point Tickets, Transfer tickets, Berner Oberland passes and I am totally confused. Any help and guidance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your kind consideration.
Are Interlaken & surrounding areas super crowded when the festival is in town in June each year?

I plan to be in Bern in the middle of March. How far a drive is it to Interlaken? Are most of the roads cleared of snow, and what are the general snow conditions during that time? Is it safe to drive deeper into the mountains.

I am trying to identify where I would go to sledge near Interlaken. I would like go sledging during the day. I think there are many destinations and getting clear information about one of them is very difficult. Is there any suggested destinations near Grindelwald, Männlichen, in the Jungfrau region? I would like to take and easy train to a destination where I can enjoy the day and sledge. I see all types of opportunites but no clear direction on how to get from Interlaken to a resort of some type where I can pay etc. I found this site: jungfrau.ch/en/tourism/exper... It is very confusing. I think there are lots of places to go. If I chose one, then I go here: jungfrau.ch/en/tourism/trave... - trying to figure out which stations to use to go to these sledding destinations is impossible. Then where do I go when I get to the station? Please help! If there are suggested close destinations for a variety of winter activities that is easy to get to I would appreciate any help!
Hi. Can I buy a single trip (return) ticket to the Jungfrau - Top of the World station in Interlaken, or do these have to be purchased before travelling to Switzerland? If so, where can I purchase the necessary ticket or tickets and do they have to be pre-reserved? Many thanks.

I am planning for few days in interlaken and Zermatt in the first week of October. My plan is to go to Interlaken (and surrounding areas) and from there to Zermatt. Considering the weather unpredictability, I am not pre-reserving any hotel for the flexibility to travel. Wanted to have your guidance on the best way to search for accomodation under this senario. 1. I would require a Single occupancy room with private bathroom with breakfast walkable from train station in Interlaken (Or Lauterbrunnen or Wengen) and Zermatt – I need very basic arrangement and my budget is around 60 USD / Day. Since I will not have any pre-reservation and will have a large strolly, request if somebody can guide me the route / walking direction from these stations to someplace where I can get few such Hotel/Hostel/Chalet/apartment to choose from. Additionally it would be really helpful if you can suggest some names of the accommodations as well ( went through some sites , but not exactly easy to take decision based on that). 2. What is the best way to move in and around the places within interlaken and Zermatt – Are Conducted site-seeing tours available or better to do it on my own through Public Transport like Bus and Trains (I am not renting a car or bike or Cycle etc.) - Any guidance on the same will be really nice. Best Regards, SK
Hello, I am taking a train from Salzburg (Austria) to Zurich HB Station on August 5, 2012. Then onwards we are planning to leave for Niederried were our Apartment is based. After looking at the Eurorail & Rail Europe website, they have advised two different routes. One via Spiez & other Bern. If I take the Route Via Bern then the itinerary shows 4 changes in the route & via Spiez shows only 1 change to Interlaken. We have a Swiss pass for 8 days, could anyone please suggest a best and least stoppage route to Niederried as we have too much of luggage with us. Cheers!

My wife and two kids who are in their 20's will have 12 hours in Interlaken. We will be there from 10 Am to 10 Pm. I was planning on doing a Flying Wheel bike tour in Interlaken. They offer one that is just a few hours around Interlaken and then a full day tour to Lauterbrunnen. Finally, I read about going to Grindelwald and talking the tram up to First, coming down 1/2 way on a zip line and then a scooter down the rest of the way and that sounds like a lot of fun. However, I won't have time to do both Lauterbrunner and Grindelwald. Here is my question, for those of you from the area or who have been there. With kids in their 20's would you: 1) Spend 1/2 day at Grindelwald/First and then do the afternoon short bike tour of Interlaken. 2) Do the long bike tour of Lauterbrunner and then just walk around Interlaken and skip Grindelwald? 3) Something else, I am open, but we can't get to Interlaken before 10Am and we have to be on a 10Pm train out of Interlaken. We are leaving our bags at the train station, as I read they have lockers. Thank you for your help.

I am thinking about visiting Interlaken, Thun and Spiez. However i am not sure about the best time of the year to visit this area. I would like to see some snow in the mountains but don't feel prepared to go in plain winter (december, january) Can anyone advice me?
I have 3 or 4 nights to spend in Switzerland during a 3 week Europe trip. I will be coming to Switzerland from Paris. I heard you can get a "Snow'n'rail" pass from the Zurich train station so I was thinking I could take a train from Paris to Zurich, get a snow'n'rail pass and then go snowboarding for a day or two nearby Zurich in Flumserberg. Doing this would give me more time to see Zurich (haven't had the time to research if there's much to do in Zurich yet) Or should I go to Interlaken for 2 nights instead and spend 1 day/night in Zurich? If so, what is the best way to get there from Paris? Lastly, is it possible to rent snowboarding clothes/gear on top of the board? I don't want to carry lots of extra clothes/gear during the rest of my trip.
