Hello, this forum has been really useful, providing good information on Switzerland travelling. I enjoy reading other posts for my moving about later in Switzerland.
Would anyone help confirm if my comparison is correct :
I will buy a 15D Swiss Pass. With this Swiss Pass,
1. To Schilthorn return ticket, CHF 35.7 (50% discount with Swiss Pass)
2a. To Jungfrau return, CHF 123.75 ( Wengen-Kschediegg-Jungfrau-Kschediegg-Grindelwald, after 25% Discount)
2b. To Jungfrau, CHF 111.75 (Wengen-Jungfrau-Wengen, after 25% discount)
2c. To Jungfrau, CHF 121.15 (Grindelwald-Jungfrau-Grindelwald, after 25% discount)
3. Grindelwald First (cable car) return ticket, chf 26.5 (after 50% discount). I am not sure is this the right price ?
(the 2a,2b,2c are for plan B/C base on my possible lodging, considering the weather).
The prices for Schilthorn and Jungfrau excursion already amount to at least - CHF (35.7 + 111.75) = CHF 147.45
With valid Swiss Pass, the Jungfrau Pass cost CHF 150
Is it sound if I buy a Jungfrau Pass (on top of my 15D Swiss Pass) instead ? Then, I could do the Mannlichen cable car etc
Glacier Express(GE) questions: I checked out that the 905 and 907 GE both depart at 0917hr from St Moritz. Both trains stops at Disentis, but 907 'rest' longer: 21min (905 'rest' for 11min, 907 arrive at Zermatt 20 min later).
A silly question, For the GE from St Moritz to Zermatt, seating at which side of the train had better scenary - left or right ? I know both side are equally good. Rather if it is you, which side will you reserve ?
Does traveller gets to go down the train to stretch their foot before continuing the next leg ?
