I along with my wife and 3 year old daughter planned to travel to switzerland from 7 may 2015 to 10 may 2015.

I wanted to visit mount titlis and mount jungfraujoch and i am planning to make zurich as my base station so can you please suggest me whether i should buy rail pass or not, if yes then which type of rail pass. And apart from these two places what are the other good places that i can see.

Also tell me whether staying in zurich as a base station is good or not.

On 10 may 2015 i will leave for milan.

Thanks & regards

Harekrishna

Hi Harekrishna,

Zurich is not in the mountains and too far from Jungfraujoch to visit as a day trip. It's not impossible, but uncomfortable. Interlaken, Brienz and Meiringen are towns to consider for your plans.

A 4-day Swiss Travel Pass seems to make sense, or possibly a Swiss Half Fare Card. Apart from that you will need a point to point ticket from the Swiss border to Milan.

Does this get you started?

Hi Harekrishna,

Zurich tips can be found on the Zurich page. All the trains, including Zurich airport to Interlaken, can be found in the timetable.

I just tried the link and it worked fine. Try this. Go to the Apple iTunes store. Type the title of the book in the search window. The books is - Grammy Takes Logan to Switzerland. You need a Mac or an iPad to read this book.
