3-4 days in the Bernese Oberland, Switzerland
Should we stay in a hostel in Interlaken and make day trips to places or Grindelwald or Lauterbrunnen etc? We'll probably want to go paragliding in Interlaken and go hiking a bit.. see Grindelwald, Lauterbrunnen, Gimmelwald and up to the Schilthorn. The Jungfraubahn is a bit too much for our budget. What else should we see or do there and roughly how much should we expect to pay for transport (with a Eurail pass)?
i was there June 07 for a week
Bern is definately only an overnight stop I stayed at the backpackers near the clock tower 'bern backpackers' i think
it was clean and adequate, i got to see the flags, bears, einsteins house and such like
lucerne i was meant to stop off at but i felt it would be similiar to zurich. although my workmate went a few weeks back and loved it.
interlaken.. now your talking the queenstown(NZ) of Europe
yes its expensive but well worth it.
If you have a look at
www.balmers.ch hostel the oldest hostel in europe ?
has a great map of the area
also youtube or google 'interlaken'
I recommend the canyoning river jumping fun
sample train fares (full adult fair)

My one regret not stopping up in gimmelwald or graindelwald at the mountain hostel with full on jacuzzi and mountain views
