Arno.....................Thank you very much for the information. It has enabled us to plan our 7 days at the campsite in Interlaken. From the information you have given it seems that the following itinerary will work. The days given are only illustrative as we will use the Flex pass to match the train travel with the weather forecast. Could you check that we have correctly understood the information from the website? Thanks.
We will purchase our 4 day Swiss Travel Pass Flex before we travel to Switzerland (CHF 286 per person). Tickets will be sent to us in the UK as we will pay the postage supplement.
Monday 22nd August - Visiting the Jungfraujoch: Use our Flex Pass (for the journey from Interlaken to Wengen / Grindelwald). Purchase the Jungfraujoch return supplement ticket (CHF132.75 per person) from any staffed station, showing the ticket person our Flex Pass to ensure we get the 25% reduction.
Wednesday 24th August - Visiting the Schynige Platte: No need to buy any extra tickets as the Flex Pass covers the entire route from Interlaken / Wilderswil / Schynige Platte and back.
Thursday 25th August - Visiting the Schilthorn: Our Flex Pass covers the Journey from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen (train) and then the cable car up to Grutschalp and then the train to Murren (and back). At Murren, we need to purchase return tickets to take the cable car up to Schilthorn (CHF 40 per pesron) which is a 50% reduction on the normal cable car fee, as we have the Flex Pass.
Saturday 27th August - Visiting Thun and Spiez using any combination of local buses / trains and boats from Interlaken. No extra tickets to be purchased as our Flex Pass covers all of these.
Can you confirm that all of this is accurate? I hope we have chosen the most appropriate Swiss Pass for the 4 days of train / boat and bus travel. We are happy to pay the extra for the flex pass to allow us to pick the best weather days within the week we are in Switzerland.
Thanks you again for your help. Andy & Lynn
