Can we use the Swiss Saver pass to travel to/from Zurich to Rhine falls? Can it also be used to travel to/from Zurich to Geneva and from Zurich to Jungfraujoch?

Hello Subathra,

There's an downloadable overview of the network on which the Swiss (saver) Pass is valid here, hopefully this answers your question, but to be more specific:
Zürich-Rhine Falls: yes.
Zürich Geneva: yes.
Zürich-Jungfraujoch: you can travel for free to Wengen or Grindelwald, from there you will have a 25% discount to Jungfraujoch, via Kleine Scheidegg.

Have a nice trip!

Hi Olga,
Thanks a lot for your reply. Need your advice on my trip to Switzerland. I'll be going next week with my hubby. we'll be there for 4 days (Aug 03-06) and flying in and out of Zurich. I mostly plan to enjoy the natural beauty there and avoid visiting any museums/ cathedrals or crowded cities.
Also, I was wondering if I buy a swiss pass to travel, will it be valid in Aug with 2 for 1 offer?? or would buy day trip card for travelling using trains & buses be better and cheaper?
Does a swiss pass give discounts on other tourist stuff (cable ride etc)?
Please help me finalize the itinerary. We like to visit these places :

Zurich
Rhine Falls
Interlaken
Jungfraujoch
Schilthorn and Piz Gloria
Wengen- Murren
Aletsch glacier
Mt Tiltis
Zermatt
Lake Geneva region
Swiss National Park(If Possible)


I know it is not possible to visit all these places in 4 days. But please help us to cover & visit most of it within our trip.

Also can you please advise us the best places to stay during our visit, will then go ahead and reserve my hotels. All ideas/ suggestions are welcome. Thanks a lot in advance!!

Sorry for too many questions;-)

Hello Subathra. The 2 for 1 offer is not valid in August; please find all details in the 2 for 1 topic. The regular 4 day Swiss Saver Pass is the best choice in your case. Since you'll be traveling a lot, it will certainly be more economical than buying regular tickets. Did you check the map Olga referred to? That allows you to find out exactly what's covered by the pass, including cable cars and mountain trains.

As for your itinerary: I'd stick to two towns/regions if I were you. You will have to make choices for a 4 day stay and you won't be able to cover all of your plans. You seem to start your trip in Zurich. If so, consider one overnight stay in Lucerne to cover the Titlis. Then get to Interlaken or nearby town for 2 or 3 overnight stays. This allows you to visit the Jungfraujoch, the Schilthorn and the Wengen/Mürren/Grindelwald region. I don't know where you're leaving from, but you can either get to Zurich or travel to Geneva on your last day using the Golden Pass. You can plan all your trips using the timetable.

Hi Subathra,

A 4-day Swiss Saver Pass is CHF 226 each, but it is different for each reseller. Just have a look at the Swiss Pass page and select your country and pass type to see all details.

Prices of mountain transport are on the respective websites: jungfrau.ch and titlis.ch. Please check this FAQ as well.

Have fun!
