I will like to book Munich to Interlaken train ticket before leaving US, I'll be buying swiss travel pass too. What web site should I use to book the ticket so that I get swiss travel pass discount(free travel) from swiss border station onwards?

Hi jbhawtan,

I noticed in your other post you intend to buy a print at home Swiss Travel Pass through www.swissrailways.com. You can certainly do so, but it would make sense to buy the pass and the ticket from one website. Swiss Railways does not sell point to point tickets, but you can get both products from the below website:

This website does not offer print at home passes and delivery takes up to 8 business days, but it's a cheap option.

Further options for tickets in Germany can be found through myswissalps.com/ traintickets/ germany/ price.

I like your suggestion Arno. But, does this mean I will have to change trains at schaffhausen or I can continue in the same train? Can I get Swiss pass validated in the train itself?

You can ask the conductor of the train to Switzerland to validate your pass and stay seated.

Thanks so much Arno and slowpoke for your responses. Since I will be travelling alone, I am trying to understand every minute detail of the trip - without the help I'm getting here in myswissalps.com, it was not possible so easily. Tons of thanks.

Thanks. Glad that we could help.

I also tend to plan fine details, especially for the first 3 or 4 days, because jet lag paralyzes my decision making capability. If something is not working according to plan, my ability to improvise is not as good as it should be. And, jet lag plays games with my memory. So, I always write down the train time for the train that I plan to take from the airport, as well couple of later ones. Also, earlier ones. The airport is very fast. Luggage comes out quickly, and the lines at passport control are not usually very long. Sometimes I have my luggage and am out of customs/immigration before I expect to be. Then, when I see a signboard with too many choices, the notes help.

One of the great pleasures of traveling in Switzerland is the way the travel system has been organized to work well, with frequent services and good connections. And, you can figure it all out ahead of time from the USA via the Internet.

Although, I must admit that these days the train system is getting heavily loaded around rush hours near the larger cities....commuters. In the past two years I have had two or three slight delays from Zürich Main Station to Zürich Airport. Maybe 5 minutes, or only 2 or 3 minutes at about 0730-0800.
