The quickest would be via Zürich, Bern and Interlaken, takes about four and a half hours.

More scenic but an hour longer, via Thalwil, Luzern, Brünig-Hasliberg and Interlaken.

Thank you, found the route on the rail map, as our next stay is in Wengen and we will probably have the Swiss pass the bus from Hasilberg to Grindelwald could be an option , what would that journey be like ?

If you are taking the train from Luzern over the Bruenig to Interlaken you would get off the train at meiringen. This is the stop after Bruenig. There you can get the bus to Grindelwald. It's a lovely scenic route up the Rosenlaui valley to Schwarzwaldalp. On that part of the route I'm almost certain you have to pay an Alpine supplement with a Swiss Pass. At Schwarzwadalp you change buses (generally) to another bus that climbs up to Grosse Scheidegg and then drops down to Grindelwald. The fare on that bus is half fare with a Swiss Pass.

Then from Grindelwald you need to train to Zweilutschinen (think the spellings wrong!) and train to Wengen.

The route up the Rosenlaui valley to Schwarzwaldalp as described above is indeed a beautiful bus ride. We have done it several times, stopping for lunch at the delightful Rosenlaui Hotel. The bus stops directly in front of the hotel, which has wonderful outdoor dining. This route is definitely worth the extra suppliment. Have a great trip.

Oh yes, the bus route from Meiringen up and over the Grosse Scheidegg and down into Grindelwald is positively stunning. DO NOT miss stopping at Hotel Rosenlaui for lunch! Time your trip to make that happen.

Thank you all, it sounds wonderful, found the bus times from Meiringen. Is the Hotel Rosenlaui in Schwarzwaldalp were you change the bus ?

No, Rosenlaui is a few stops prior. But busses stop right by the hotel hourly and that will take you on your way. You cannot miss Rosenlaui Hotel as it is the only thing at that stop.
