Sorry to ask this again, and I thought I'd made a decision, but now am unsure again.
Our itinerary is:
1. Arrive Zurich - train to Lucerne
4. Train to Lauterbrunnen
8. Train to Bern
9. Train to Innsbruck
10. Train to Salzburg
14. Train to Vienna
I had decided on the Swiss Pass initially, but in looking at the fact that I still need tickets within Austria, and comparing the price of Swiss Pass and Swiss/Austria Eurail pass, I am, again undecided. The prices I am comparing are 8 day Swiss Pass 1st class (still deciding on class...) 580 swiss francs pp = $1564 (AUS), while the eurail pass for 11 days equal $1395 (AUS). Given that with the Swiss Pass we will still need to buy a ticket for Day 1 (Zurich airport to Lucern) and the Austrian portion, I now think the eurail pass might be best. Any opinions on this please??
Also, can anyone clarify if the Swiss/Austrian eurail pass DOESN'T include the train from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen? I know it just provides a discount to Murren, Wengen etc, but I thought the trip to Lauterbrunnen would be covered??
Thanks so much (again!!)
