Dear Sir/Madam,

I'll itinerary trip to Swiss as below:
4 Apr : Arrive at Geneva and continue to Montreux to take GoldenPass to Interlaken.
From Interlaken I'll continue my trip to Grindelwald and stay there.
5 Apr : Grindelwald - Jungfrau vv. stay at Grindelwald
6 Apr : Grindelwald to Interlaken but I want to go through Lauterbrunnen.
What is the best fare for train ticket that I should buy for those itinerary above?
Is it recommended to go to Lauterbrunnen on 5 Apr? I saw there is a route from Grindelwald-Jungfraujoch and to Lauterbrunnen (return).
I have Swiss Pass already (2 Adult and 2 Kids <10 years old)
Please advice.

Warm Regards,
Yon

Hi Yon,

Did you already make reservations for the Golden Pass? If not you can use this page.

A (PDF) overview of the network on which the Swiss Pass is valid can be found on the Swiss Pass page.

The Swiss Pass will give you a 25% discount from Grindelwald to Kleine Scheidegg and up to Jungfraujoch v.v. on 5 Apr. If you want to continue to Lauterbrunnen that same day a 25% discount is applicable from Kleine Scheidegg to Wengen. Between Wengen and Lauterbrunnen you will travel fo free.

On the other hand, you may consider to visit Lauterbrunnen on 6 Apr. From Grindelwald you can go by train to Grindelwald-Grund, take the gondolas to Männlichen, from there by cable car to Wengen and take the train to Lauterbrunnen. The Swiss Pass will give you free traveling all the way.

I wish you a pleasant stay!

Hi- surely yoi have to pay (50%) on gondola from Grindelwald-Grund to Mannlichen and cable car from there to Wengen? We did this trip with Swiss Pass and paid 50% on a round trip as described. It's a good excursion though and worth doing. Maggie

Hi Yon! Interlaken-Grindelwald is covered by your Swiss Pass. Please refer to the validity map that can be downloaded from the Swiss Pass page.

Seat reservation for the Jungfraujoch train and the Männlichen cable cars aren't necessary. The Swiss timetable allows you search for train, bus and boat connections. The Bernese Oberland link section lists websites of gondolas and cable cars: you'll find timetables there.

Hello iamargentina. No, you don't have to use a free travel day. If your Swiss Flexi Pass is already activated (it always has to start off with a free travel day) you can buy discounted tickets for Männlichen-Wengen on non-free travel days as well.

By the way, you can best start a new topic for your questions, as they'll be noticed more easily by other forum members than when they're asked in another, already existing thread. You can do so by logging in, getting to the forum and clicking 'Start new topic' in the right corner above the topic list. Thanks :-)!
