Hi,

I am hoping someone could help!

Myself and my partner are flying into Zurich on the 27th November and then intend to get the train to Bern as that is where we are staying for 3 nights. We intend to explore Bern on the 28th and then want to go to Jungfraujoch on the 29th. We then fly out of Basel on the 30th November so would need to get the train from Bern to Basel. Could someone please advise me what Rail Pass would be the best for us?

Also, to get from Jungfraujoch from Bern, I assume there are going to be a few changes we need to make on the train?

Thanks so much in advance.

Hi Lauren,

You're lucky: you're traveling during the very last days one can use the 2-for-1 offer on the Swiss Pass. The 4-day pass would fit your plans perfectly. Hotels near the rail station in Bern can be found here.

Yes, you need to change trains to reach the Jungfraujoch. Just fill out the timetable to get all details.

Thanks for the reply.

So just to confirm, we should purchase the swiss pass or the flexi swiss pass?

Is it worthwhile to purchase the pass as opposed to not having a pass for the travel that we want to do. Like, will it save us money by having a pass?

Thanks again,

Lauren
