Hello JudithWilson, and welcome to the forum! Yes, in your case a Swiss rail pass is definitely cheaper than buying point to point tickets. The Swiss Half Fare Card would be a good option indeed. It provides a 50% discount on nearly all trips (including Mürren-Jungfraujoch). All specifics, including purchase options, are listed at the Swiss Half Fare Card page
. You'll also find a link to a map showing the validity area there.
If the idea of unlimited traveling (without having to buy any individual (discounted) tickets for each trip) appeals to you, you may want to look into the Swiss Pass
as well. It's by far the most convenient way of traveling in Switzerland. An alternative is the Swiss Flexi Pass
, offering a number of free travel days and discounts on other days. The Swiss Pass and Swiss Flexi Pass can both be purchased online from the United States, which is a lot cheaper than buying the passes locally in Switzerland. Just fill out your country of residence and further data in the upper right corner of each pass page for up to date prices.
