HI,

This is Azeem from Mumbai...will be arriving in Geneva from Paris on 17th April by Eurostar. Planning to stay for 1 night and proceed to Lucerne for the next 4 days or so with my wife and son. Would like to visit to Mt Titlus from Lucerne and visit Zurich too. Do you recommend a swiss travel pass for 4 days to cover the route. Also do you recommend the Golden pass line from Montreux to Lucerne as have read its a beautiful route. Not very sure of the Golden Pass time table too as its in 3 sections.

Please advise the best itinerary and places to visit. Also do you get discounts on the Swiss Pass as currently no offers are showing.

thank you !

Hi azeem, welcome to MySwissAlps!

Lucerne is a very good choice for a visit in April. I definitely recommend the Golden Pass. The route is described at our Golden Pass page. You can either check the specific Golden Pass timetable using the link under "More on other websites" at this page, or consult the general timetable. Trains between Montreux and Interlaken are called "Golden Pass" here, trains between Interlaken and Lucerne are referred to as "Luzern-Interlaken Express". Fill out via-stations along the route, like Zweisimmen and Meiringen, for Golden Pass connections (otherwise, the timetable will show another quicker route by default).

Which pass is best, strongly depends on the details of your itinerary: how long exactly your stay will last, what day trips you'll be making from Lucerne, your city or airport of departure, etc. A 4 day Swiss Travel Pass may be a good fit. Depending on the duration of your stay it may not cover the last day(s), but this doesn't have to be a problem if you only make some shorter trips during these days. For example, you could visit Zurich then; Lucerne-Zurich is a relatively short ride, and the local ZurichCARD may cover your needs. You'd best finalize your travel plans and start comparing passes as explained at www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass.

Currently, there are no rail pass promotions indeed. If there are, they'll be displayed in our Discounts section and announced in the forum.

Please refer to our Lucerne and Lake Lucerne pages for tips on sightseeing and activities.
