Advice needed on travel between Lucerne and Bernese Oberland

Good afternoon. My family of 4 is traveling to see the Bernese Oberland area (flying into Zurich). We have an 8 and a 5 yr old. We are trying to figure out which area to stay in so we can visit Murren, Wengen, Lauterbrunne and Interlaken. Can we stay in one area and do day trips or does it make sense to stay in each area. We have 4 nights, 5 days to check this area out. We've been researching but there are so so many different suggestions its hard to know what's correct!!

Interlaken is not a place people visit for it's own merits, it is a place where you change trains to go to the places you actually visit. It is the most central location for the area and at the same time the dullest one. A good compromise would be staying in Lauterbrunnen and visiting the rest.

I would recommend Wengen, Lauterbrunnen or Murren as a good base for your trip. Stay there for your entire stay that way you are close to everything and dont waste time shuffling from one hotel to another.

We have stayed in Lauterbrunnen during several trips to Switzerland. Centrally located, easy hiking trails, We are bringing our 3 grandchildren next summer (5,8,10) and plan Lauterbrunnen as our base. Our favorite hotel is the STAUBBACH. Family friendly small hotel, great breakfast, excellent, informative staff who make daily suggestions for you at breakfast.
