Scenic trains from Basel to Interlaken

Hi,

I would be landing in Basel on 20th October by 12 in the afternoon and would like to reach Interlaken. Could any one suggest me any scenic trains I can take through this route. I dont mind if the route is longer while it offers me the scenic beauty. Any help is greatly appreciated.

You could travel via Lucerne and over the Brünig pass. 3 hours 38 minutes instead of 1:58 via Berne.

look the railway site.

On the way back, don't miss to visit the old city center of Basel, 6 minutes by tram from the railway station.

Thanks for your advise Maetzli,

When I searched in sbb.ch from Basel to Interlaken via Lucerne, I got only one connection: Basel->Lucerne and Lucerne->Interlaken which requires 3hrs 38mins as you said. Does this route covers Brünig pass as well?

And trains in this route are InterRegional, just to make sure... does the regional trains in this route be enjoyable(interms of Scenic beauty)?

Thanks again in advance!

Yes it does

enter "Brünig" in the empty box after "via"

Enter "Brünig" on Google and click on "picture. Then you can decide. I think it is very scenic.
