Hi,

My boyfriend and I are planning our trip to switzerland in May. Our itinerary is as follows:

May 9: arrive at geneva airport from jfk, day trip in geneva, train to zermatt.

may 10: zermatt-paragliding via alpine adventures.

May 11: train from zermatt to interlaken. Kayak on lake brienze.

May 12: train to grindelwald-hiking up to first and lake Beauchamp.

May 13: train to lucerne, city walk.

May 14: train to munich and go to garden, train to erding, germany for brew tour.

may 16: the ludwig neushwannin? castle in fussen germany

may 17: train to munich aurport.

Should we do the 2 country eurorail pass or the swiss pass or swiss flexi? What would be our best and cheapest option?

Thanks in advance,

Diana

Hi Diana,

There is a promotion on the Eurail Germany-Switzerland pass right now: one extra day of traveling if you purchase before April 28. A 6-day pass now includes 7 days, which is the number of travel days you have planned. Since you live in the US, you can get that promo through raileurope.com/germany -switzerland-pass or acprail.com/rail-passes/eurail. Whether this pass is the cheapest option for you can be calculated.

Price wise, a Swiss Half Fare Card for Switzerland, and point to point tickets for Germany may be better. The calculation should help you choose. The Swiss Travel Pass and Swiss Travel Pass Flex are too expensive for your travel plans I would say.
