We are departing this weekend to Europe and I need to get Swiss rail tickets for our travel to Jungfraujoch region from Milan.
We have 3 kids (8, 11, 14) and would like to ride Jungfrau train and sightseeing in the area. We don't have a car and will travel by train or bus.
1. What town would you recommend for us to stay? Interlaken, Lauterbrunnen, Grindelwald
Our main thing is Jungfrau train ride, nearby cheese factory (need to find one) sightseeing, souvenir shop
We will depart on June 2 to head to Zurich.
2. Which of these 3 towns have most souvenir shops, restaurants, grocery shops where we can pick up some food?
3. Which Swiss pass will give us best discount? I see there are several options - Swiss Half fare and all. Since we will be in Swiss 3 days total we would not want to pay longer period card? Any discount fares for the passes that we will need (town access, Jungfrau, Zurich)? Either 1 pass that we can use for everything or just get a ticket each section?
4. I read if you are getting on Jungfrau train from Lauterbrunnen or Grindelwald, the Jungfrau fare is half off or some discount?
Are these 2 towns easily accessible by train from Interlaken? We will be traveling from Milan.
Thank you for your advice.
