Hi,

Me and my wife are planning to travel to Switzerland from 25th June to 5th July. We are planning to stay in Zurich - Luzern - Interlaken - Laussane and travel by train. I am planning to buy a 15 day Swiss pass on our arrival in Zurich. The questions I have are,

1. 15 day Swiss pass is the right option? any suggestions ..
2. How crowded 2nd class is in during this period, as this is the peak season.. Will it be convenient to travel with some luggage also in 2nd class?

Thanks,
Anurag

Hello Anurag. Whether a 15 day Swiss Pass is the most economical option, can only be determined once you know what your travel schedule will look like. These general guidelines may help you choose. Iif you like the idea of free traveling throughout the country, and if you'll be doing quite some traveling during your stay, the Swiss Pass is a very convenient option.

June and July are peak season indeed. Some popular tourist routes can be quite crowded in 2nd class, but that really depends on the exact connection. The timetable gives an indication of how crowded trains are expected to be. Just fill out your connection and study the list of connections. The symbols under 'information' for 1st and 2nd class indicate the expected occupancy. If you want to be sure of enough space, you could consider a 1st class pass.
