My husband and I will be arriving in Zurich April 21, 2015 and would like to spend 3 days in Switzerland, we will also be travelling to Paris, Ireland, and Scotland. After spending many hours researching different passes and places to visit in Switzerland I have come up with this rough itinerary.
Zurich to Paris - TGV train (April 21)
Paris to Dublin to Edinburgh (April 24-May 4)
Edinburgh to Geneva (or Basel) - possibly spend a few hours sightseeing (May 4)
Geneva/Basel to Interlaken - spend 2 nights in Interlaken - day trip to Schilthorn (May 4,5)
Interlaken to Lucerne - spend one night in Lucerne (May 6)
Lucerne to Zurich - fly out same day (May 7)
What I'm not too sure about is whether it would be better to purchase a swiss pass, or swiss half fare card. If I purchase a swiss half fare card, am I able to use one card to purchase tickets for myself and my husband? Or do we need to each purchase the half fare card?
Basically, besides arriving April 21st, we will only be in Switzerland for 3 days (May 4-7), and most likely doing only one mountain excursion up to Schilthorn. At other times we will be walking or hiking and checking out the local area.
Thank you in advance for any information you are able to provide!
