1: Interlaken Ost – Wilderswill – Grindelwald
2: Interlaken Ost – Wilderswill – Lauterbrunnen
Between Interlaken Ost and Wilderswill the BOB trains heading to Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen are usually joined together.
They’re separated/joined together after Wilderswil at Zweilutschinen station.
BOB operates two types of train, newer trains are gradually being introduced - though for such relatively short journeys, the type of train you will be travelling by is fairly unimportant.
1st class is available.
A plus of the newer trains, is that electronic displays on the side of coaches, indicate whether a train will be heading to Grindelwald or Lauterbrunnen.
Photographers will want to know that on both types of trains the windows can be opened.
