You're most welcome nikita123! The timings of the round trip indeed don't match exactly. As mentioned on the page, the times are by approximation. They're just displayed to provide an impression of the times of travelling, so that you know what's doable in a day. The actual times are different per season. Weekdays/weekends may make a difference as well.

The Niesen is discounted by 50% with a Swiss Pass. Just download the map from the Swiss Pass page for such details.

Hi,

I'm sure you can have such pictures being taken in multiple places, but the only one I know of is the photo studio at the top of the Titlis. Please be sure to post the result here ;-)

Hi nikita. In most cases it's not economical to buy an additional pass on top of your Swiss Saver Pass. The Swiss Saver Pass already provides either free traveling or a 50% discount on the trips you mention. You'd have to make calculations to see whether an extra Jungfraubahnen Pass would be worth the money.

I think you've gathered quite some tips for your stay in Zurich. We've already mentioned the city tour. Indeed, Lucerne and surroundings (including Pilatus and Rigi) can be very well reached too. You could also make a boat trip over lake Zurich, explore the town itself, visit the National Museum, get up to viewing point Uetliberg, and so on.

As for buying tickets: for many trips you won't need any tickets, since you'll have a Swiss Saver Pass. If you do need an additional (discounted) ticket, you can buy it at the spot right before boarding. Larger companies/rail stations often accept credit cards and allow you to choose your currency; smaller comapnies don't always. So it's wise to have some cash in Swiss francs. In most cases you don't have to book in advance, so you won't need a tour operator either. Nearly all trips can be planned in advance with the aid of the timetable.

Hello nikita,

I would recommend to pick only one place to visit in each of these towns, at walking distance of the rail station, as you have limited time if you want to do all of this in one day. I would personally like to stroll a bit along Lake Geneva; you can easily do so in Montreux as the lake is really close to the rail station. There's a lot to see in Lausanne and it really depends on what you're interested in. Some suggestions are on the hotel page of Lausanne. In Vevey, there are quite some museums near the rail station, and markets you might like to visit.
