Hi, I had a good look at the Swiss rail passes but most don't quite fit our plans. We are planning on about 20 days in Switzerland in total, travelling by train, remaining mainly in western Switzerland. Travelling Colmar to Grindelwald. 5 nights in Grindelwald mainly hiking and including the Jungfraujoch. Then 6 nights in Murren, also hiking. Plans after that are fluid, but ending in In Geneva.

The Swiss Travel pass is only 15 days max. We will require about 20 days. We will only be travelling intercity on trains a few days, with the majority of the time spent staying in one town but using local transport options, ie cable car etc.

What is the best option for us ?

What is the best way to travel when you are staying longer than the travel pass allowed days ?

Thanks in Advance. Jeff

Hi Jeff, welcome to MySwissAlps!

I would say one of the below options should fit your plans:

Another option is a regional pass for Grindelwald and Mürren, and somethings else for the remaining days. You'd better first finalize your plans before committing to a pass.

Please see myswissalps.com/ train/ticketspasses/ practical/chooserailpa ss for instructions on how to choose.
