Hello,

I would like to know which rail passes can we use on our coming trip to Wengen (July). We will arrive to Zurich from Germany by train, then take a another train to Wengen and stay there for 4 days. We want to visit Murren and the The Jungfraujoch.

We'll be a party of 3 adults and 1 toddler (1.5 y/o)

Thanks!

Mylene :)

HI Mylene and welcome to MySwissAlps!

The only have to know for sure is to plan your train and gondola trips that you will probably do while in Switzerland and visit our rail pass page here and do the math.

You could look at the Swiss Travel Pass (which covers the whole country) or perhaps the Jungfrau Travel Pass which will cover just the areas around Wengen, Murren and a few others (then you buy a point to point ticket from Germany to Wengen or from Germany to Swiss border if you opt for the Swiss Travel Pass.)

Hi Mylene,

The "Regional Pass" is also a good choice if you intend to visit a little bit more of an area than Jungfrau region. For example, a 4 day regional pass costs around 230 EUR (a 3 days Jungfrauregion pass is roughly 165 euros), but allows you to travel as far as Luzern or Bern, Adelboden, Gstaad, Brienzer Rothorn (in my opinion, this is a must-do...), boat travels around Thunersee & Brienzersee, Niesen kulm, Stockhorn kulm, so on... All those above, and many others for free (included in the pass price).

Of course you won't cover more than 25-30% of those in 4 days (I will be there for 6 days and still won't be able to cover more than 60%...), so it's up to you to choose. :)

With this option, you only need a train ticket up to Luzern, from there onwards the Regional pass covers the trip to Wengen. Here's a link to their website:
