Hi there

We have a group of 10 travelling to Switzerland in May.
Our itinerary is as follows...
Day 1: Zurich airport - city, followed by 1-day city tour
Day 2: Zurich - Bern - Interlaken
Day 3/4: Jungfrau + Mannlichen + Grindelwald
Day 5/6: Zermatt + Matterhorn
Day 7: Zermatt - Brig - Verzia

Could you please advise which is the best option for us?
Thanks and looking forward to your reply. =)

Hi emeline, and welcome! Since you'll be traveling in May, you can use the current 2 for 1 offer on the 4 day Swiss Saver Pass. If you order a 4 day Swiss Saver Passe twice for the entire group, you can thus cover all 7 days of your stay. This offer is by far the most economical solution in your case and it will save you lots of money. More information on the Swiss Saver Pass and ordering options, including the 2 for 1 offer, can be found at the Swiss Pass page.

Does that answer your question?

Hi Annika thanks for the reply. very helpful indeed. we have bought the 4-day swiss pass. would appreciate if you could help with a few more questions.

We need to get to our B&B at Murren from Interlaken. I have been advised by the B&B owner to go by either
1. the Lauterbrunnen-Grutschalp-Muerren route, alighting at the Muerren train station, or
2. by the Lauterbrunnen-Stechelberg-Muerren route, getting off at the Schilthorn cable car station.

Could you please tell me which route will be entirely/mostly covered by our Swiss Pass and where i can check the timetable of the cable car and train?

Hello emeline! Both routes are entirely covered by your Swiss Saver Pass (please refer to the validity map we link to from the Swiss Pass page). Details on the trips can be found in the timetable. The shortest route is the first one via Grütschalp, and that's the one the timetable will display. If you want to see details on the route via Stechelberg, you have to fill out 'Stechelberg' as a via-station. Does that help you out?
