We are a group of 4 adults (me, my spouse and parents) and one 5 year old kid travelling to the Jungfrau region in August. This is our itinerary -
Aug 23 - Reach Zurich Airport by 10AM. Take the train to Lauterbrunnen.
Aug 24 - Excursion to Jungfraujoch.
Aug 25 - Spend time in the villages of Murren and Gimmelwald. Do a small trail here, Allmendhubel to gimmelwald or spend the rest half of the day in Wengen Mannlichen area.
Aug 26 - Leave early for Lucerne. Do the boat cruise and excursion to Mt Pilatus. Travel to Zurich in the night.
Aug 27 - Morning flight from Zurich.
Where should we base ourselves in the Jungfrau region - Lauterbrunnen or Murren? I am inclined to stay in Murren but will that eat up a lot of time in traveling? Will that be a lil inconvenient for Day 2, after a long day excursion? We anyway plan to visit Murren on day 3, since the trip is short we are not going to be able to enjoy the stay as much. So, is staying at the more convenient Lauterbrunnen a wiser option?
I am getting a decent stay in both the towns. Need to choose one. Kindly suggest.
