Day 1 - March 22 - Interlakan to Jungfraujoch (Return)
Day 2 - March 23 - Interlakan to Lucern (One Way)
Day 2 - March 23 - Lucern to Mt. Pilatus (Return)
Day 3 - March 24 - Lucern to Zurich (One way)
Day 4 - March 25 - Zurich city and transfer to Airport

Total passengers: Two (husband and wife). We will be arriving Frankfurt and from there taking a train to Interlakan on 21st March, train is already booked by us.

Please advise the cost effective ticket/pass for the above itinerary (Intrerlakan-Lucern-Zurich). If we can include any other trip, please advise us.

Your immediate advise is much appreciated as we have limited time to travel.
We are staying in Doha, Qatar (close to Dubai).

Hello Ajesh,

If I summarize your trip it is a train transfer from Interlaken to Zurich airport via Lucerne and Zurich centre, with side trips to the Pilatus and Jungfraujoch. I would recommend the Swiss Half Fare Card as it provides 50% discounts on all of the transportation.

There is some space in your itinerary to do some things extra, but of course it depends on the weather and your pace of traveling also. A boat trip from Interlaken could be an option on day 1. Day 3 could be used to visit some attractions in Lucerne before leaving for Zurich. For hotels and attraction suggestions, please take a look here.

I hope this helps you out!

Dear Sir,

Thank you, can I purchase the half card after my arrival in Interlakan? Also, is it valid in gondolas.

Regards,
Ajesh

Hello Ajesh,

Yes, you can, as long as the service desk is open. Or you could buy it in advance. All the purchase options, a downloadable map of the covered network and other details are at the Swiss Half Fare Card page.
