Possible, probably, but I would not advise it. The journey from Lucerne is two hours, the boat trip an hour and twenty minutes then the train from Interlaken Ost to Jungfraujoch is another two hours, five and half hours at least each way. How long at the top? Depends on you.

I would go up Pilatus or Rigi or if you want snow and ice Titlis all a lot closwr and easier to travel. You could include a boat trip in the journey to both Pilatus and Rigi.

Wonder if the boat trip can take us from Interlaken all the way back to Lucern or....we have to change to train after the boat trip in Lake Brienz? Thank you.

Maybe it's better to check a map.There is a 1600 meter high mountain pass between lake Brienz and lake Lucerne.

This is a very funny thread!! Perhaps Flora L's first step in planning her Swiss travels should be to get a really good map! second step is to look at

www.myswitzerland.com and get details on what to see and do - and third step is to ask us her remaining questions!!

Flora L - when you get here you will realise the humour!!

What you might do is first go all the way through Interlaken and up to the Jungfrau and back. Then get on the boat at Interlaken and take it to Brienz at the other end of the lake. Get off there and take a train back to Lucern. That way you get to see all the things you want. It will be a long day but you could probably do it if you get an early start.
