There is hardly a summit that you can’t reach by mountain train or cable car in the Bernese Oberland ... Drive up and walk down (or vice versa). Or, if you’re looking for something more thrilling, then why not ride back into the valley on a trottibike (Niederhorn & First), toboggan (Heimwehfluh & Pfingstegg) or Mountaincart (First). There are also many different and attractive multi-day offers available (Regional Pass, Jungfrau Travelpass, etc.).
If you're travelling with your family, then we recommended that you purchase the "Junior Card" for CHF 30 .—, which offers free travel for all children accompanied by a paying adult (bus, train, boat).
