My main question is whether the Swiss Pass will cover transport in the Jungfrau region, which is the main area we are going to be in. It seems like yes to trains, but no to cable cars or the Top of Europe route? Is that correct? And these cable cars are expensive, correct?
Here is our general plan. We are a family of 3 (2 adults, 1 child age 8)
June 29--arrive Geneva airport, stay in hotel nearby
June 30--travel from Geneva to Wengen
June 30-July 7 Stay in apartment in Wengen, do day trips generally around Jungfrau area, maybe a day in Bern if we have bad weather
July 7--travel from Wengen to Florence
It seems that the Jungfrau Railways Pass 6 day pass might be a good option. It's 220 chf per adult. I think it covers all trains, buses, cable cars and gives 50% off the top of europe/junfraujoch train. But doesn't cover Murren to Schilthorn? Does anything?
Should we also get a Swiss 3 day flexpass to get from Geneva to Wengen, and then Wengen to Florence (or Milan, I guess the Milan to Florence wouldn't be covered!) and a have a 3rd day if we need it?
OR should we get a Transfer pass? Can we use one if we enter at one border (Geneva airport) and leave at another (train to Milan)?
Finally, seems like we would want some type of Swiss pass so we can get the family pass so our daughter is free on everything, right? does that work if we only get the transfer pass and the Jungfrau Railways pass?
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
