Getting to Interlaken from Barcelona

Mid September I'll be going from Barcelona to Interlaken and was wondering what the best options were to get there? Looking online there are cheap flights to Basel and Zurich then taking a train but not sure what the best/cheapest options are.

Thanks!

You will have to do the calculations. Here is the site to get the rail fares from:

Hi, you are probably going to do best getting a cheap flight (easyjet, etc.) to either Basel or Zurich and then take the train. You can get the fares and timetables on the Swiss Rail website given to you above. Be sure to do an entire fake booking including putting no reduction in that box as you will otherwise see half fares as the site defaults to half fares. If the only travel you are doing in Switzerland is from your point of entry to Interlaken and then leave the country, you might want to consider the transfer ticket. You can get lots of information on the various passes/tickets on the Swiss Rail website by clicking on the leisure and holiday tab and then in the 3rd column on the international guests tab. Also, there;s good information on the Rick Steves website

Hope this helps.
