I have an itinerary pretty much set out right now, though nothing in concrete. Have a family coming to Switzerland in August for a few days (2 parents, and two youths at 22 and 17 years). We have already booked a train from Berlin --> Basel --> Interlaken. However, it seems the Basel --> Interlaken trip is quite expensive. We then plan on staying in Interlaken that night (with trip to Grindewald in the day), then train to Chur to take the Glacier Express to Zermatt. Then we plan to stay in Zermatt for the night, the next morning train to Geneva to fly out.
What would be the best way to go for us? I understand the Swiss Pass offers unlimited travel for all these routes? And since there are two youths, would we be buying two adult Swiss Passes at 15% off and two Youth Passes at 25% off? And if that's the case, do we have to buy it first, have it shipped to me (in Canada) and then book train tickets on the SBB website?
