Can you carry plants on an airplane?

Depends on your destination and the plant(s).

Plant materials are regulated by international phytosanitary regulations (which also includes CITES, which regulates the movement of endangered species).

The normal process is to obtain an official plant Import Permit for the plant material from the country of destination prior to shipping or moving the plants. This is normally issued by a governmental body (such as the Department of Agriculture).

The conditions and regulations for the particular plant that you are wanting to transport will be stated on the permit. The process then involves the applicant being able to meet or prove that the plant materials conform to the requirements on the import permit; this then involves obtaining a Phytosanitary Certificate from the exporting countries authorities.

As you can see this is not really a simple process and can take days or weeks. Most certificates will prohibit the transport of plant materials in "naturally occurring soils" (basically digging a plant out of the ground and shipping it), this means that plants can normally only be shipped in an "artificial medium" or bear rooted - which normally applies to commercially cultivated horticultural plants.

It is not advisable to simply take plant material with you in your luggage as some plants are banned in certain countries, and could earn you a spell in jail for even having them in your possession. Australia has particularly rigid regulations and penalties regarding this, while the movement of plant materials within EU countries is fairly easy and has few restrictions.

It should also be noted that the movement of certain types of plants even within the same country is regulated; for example the movement of citrus plants between states in the USA.

Note: This process also applies to seeds or packets of seeds

What drastically changed tourism in the 1900s?

mass production of the automobile and superhighways.

That's certainly one factor, but not the only one. The development of the railways in the 19C was the first major incentive to tourism; and still the prime mover for holidaymakers until at least half-way through the 20C, when mass ownership of cars and improvements in road transport generally took the lead.

Later of course came air travel at prices low enough for any reasonably affluent family to take holidays abroad, and with this, the consequent rapid development of the resorts - an effect the railways had brought.

Interestingly, in the UK the railways may be regaining some of that traffic as motoring becomes costlier and less pleasant; and the Channel Tunnel has taken a lot of traffic that would otherwise have had to use the conventional ferries.

How do you go from Berne to Lauterbrunnen by train?

The timetable is basically exactly the same on all days of every week and throughout summer and winter. You first need to catch the train from Berne to Interlaken Ost (do not get off at Interlaken West which you stop at before Interlaken Ost). Trains on this line run about every half hour from early morning to late at night and journey takes 2 hours 3 minutes via Thun and Spiez.

On arrival at Interlaken Ost trains from there leave every half hour for Lauterbrunnen via Wilderswll and Zwellutschinen, and this journey takes 22 minutes.

As an example say you get the train departing from Berneat 0906 that will arrive at Interlaken Ost at 1003. You then can catch the next train from Interlaken Ost which departs at 1020 and you arrive at Lauterbrunnen at 1040.
