I am flying into Zurich and am scheduled to arrive early June 19. I purchased a saver day pass and will travel to lauterbrunnen and use this as our base for 4 days. I plan to purchase the Bernese Oberland pass for a family of 4 (wife and 2 college age kids). It is our first time in Switzerland also.
I am hoping someone can tell me if the following is too much or not enough for a full day:
assuming weather is clear
day 1 - train to wilderswil, train to schynige platte, hike part way around loop. Train back to wilderswil, train to interlakken, boat ride on brienz, get off boat at giessbach to tour falls, back on boat to brienz. Train back to lauterbrunnen
day 2 - cable car to grutschalp, train to murren, up to allmendhubel, hike down to murren, hike to gimmelwald (or train). Tour each town along the way. Not sure what else to do or if time allows additional hikes or train travel
day 3 - train to wengen/Klein sheidegg/Grindelwald, cable car to first. Hike to bachalpsee. Back to first then grindelwald. Bus to mannlichen. Hike to Klein sheidegg. Back to lauterbrunnen by train.
Day 4 - train to kandersteg, cable car up mountain, hike to oeschinen. Back to kandersteg. Train to bern, tour town, swim in aare river. Back to lauterbrunnen
I have no idea if this is too much or too little to pack into a day. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. My family is looking for some short and fairly easy hikes, nothing too difficult and long.
for bad weather days, we have looked at touring thun, beatus caves, spiez, and lucern. Any other suggestions for less than ideal weather?
Based on the 10 day forecast, I am not optimistic that we will have very many clear days.
