I have begun making some plans for this summer and I was wondering if you could help me with a train pass question. We are flying in and out of Zurich and will be going into Grindewald and out of Kandersteg. During our 10 days there, we will be in Grindewald, Wengen, Murren and Kandersteg. We do plan on using trains, lifts, funiculars, buses etc during our time there.
Is it best to purchase a Swiss Card or Swiss Pass for the to and from Zurich trips and a Regional Bernese Oberland pass for our time there; or should I purchase the to and from Zurich tickets individually and purchase the regional pass for the time there; or would the Swiss Card work for the entire trip w/the 50% off of the trains, lifts etc in the Bernese Oberland? I have checked the websites, but I am not sure which would be the best option. Also, does the Swiss Pass cover lift, funiculars, buses or just trains? Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.
