We are trying to plan the Switzerland leg of our trip. My wife and I’ll be staying at Interlaken for 2 days and then in Gimmelwald for 2 days. We’ll be buying the Swiss Saver Pass for 4 days and wanted to know what’s the best bang for the buck using this pass. For now, we are planning to take the Interlaken to Jungfrajoch trip on the first day and then the Golden Pass Express from Interlaken -> Luzern -> Montreux -> Interlaken on the second day (I understand this is just a return trip on the same train). On the third and fourth days, we’d like to do multiple hikes around Gimmelwald.
So, is there anything specific that we could do and not spend too much money since we already will have spent for the swiss pass? Can we do a hike to schilthorn and avoid the costs on the cable cars? What other trails would you recommend for those two days? Also, on the second day we are in interlaken, can we try another scenic train ride rather than taking the golden pass train back and forth? I guess the Bernina Express route is too far a stretch, right?
Also, we’d like to NOT USE the pass on one of the days when we are in Gimmelwald since we are leaving for Fussen after these four days and would like to use the swiss pass for part of the train ride towards Fussen. So, can we hike around Gimmelwald without using the swiss pass on one of these days?
