Montreux to Interlaken

We will be driving from Montreux to Lauterbrunnen in early June. Which is a more scenic route, A12 or Route 189?

many thanks

Not quite sure what you are referring to as Route 189... I would say the most scenic way (staying within reasonably direct limits) would be via the Col des Mosses, Château d'Oex, Saanen, Zweisimmen. Google Maps has this numbered as route 11. This is a good quality major mountain road with some twisting and turning, but always wide enough for two cars to pass without any trouble.

The A12 is a motorway/highway which avoids the mountains completely. The first part between Montreux and Fribourg is pleasant enough without being spectacular, but from there onwards the road goes through flat, mostly suburban areas.

What kind of temperature can I expect up in the mountains, Jungfrau, or Zermatt, St. Moritz June 8 to 15?

A gortex windbreaker with a fleece vest good enough?

Thanks.
