Good evening. :-)
We are usually get the swiss saver pass when we visit Switzerland (staying in Interlaken) because we go around everyday to all the places we can visit (normally for 22 days). For the past 3 years we have seen all you can, traveling everyday. Next winter we are going to stay in Wengen and we just want to go sledging and walking (from 3 Jan 2013 till 15 Jan 2013 - Wengen and then from 15 - 18 Jan 2013 in Grindelwald. We thought now of getting the flexi pass (4 days in one month), so we can get from and to the airport on our arriving and leaving dates and then we had 2 days to travel to Zermatt or wherever for the day. My big concern now is, must we get a skipass (for sledging and walking) and what does that include.... is the cable cars all then for free showing the skipass or do we have to pay for that. Does that also include the sledging rental or must we go to a place and rent sledges for say a week or two or get one everyday. I understand from the hotel owner that we only get a visitors card and that we have to pay for all the trains in and around Wengen.

Love to hear from you.

hi,

we are 2 ppl travelling to switzerland from India in march 2012 for 3 days...we would be based out of zurich as the hotels and return trip tickets are already booked. Would need the moderators help in the below:

1) day 1: zurich to lucerne to mt titlis and back. what should be our start time in morning and what is the total trip duration. How much will it the train tickets cost us. Also is it feasible to buy a swiss pass or a swiss half fare ticket?
Are there any other tickets and if yes, the fares for these places.

2) day 2: zurich to interlaken to jungfrau. what should be our start time in morning and what is the total trip duration. How much will it the train tickets cost us. Also is it feasible to buy a swiss pass or a swiss half fare ticket? Are there any other tickets and if yes, the fares for these places.

3) day 3: zurich to schillthorn. is it worth going there or we can cover it midway during any of the baove 2 tours.

Thanks in advance for the help.

cheers!

Hello Chandan! Would you mind creating a new topic for your question, as it isn't really related to human.elize's original topic? You can do so by logging in, getting to the forum and clicking 'create new topic' in the upper right corner above the topic overview. Thank you :-)!

Hello Jayakumar! I actually have the same question for you: could you post your question as a new topic, in order to keep the forum well organised? Thank you!

Hello Tinkie! It's great that you get to visit Switzerland in winter next time. That's beautiful as well! As for your question: if you have a Swiss Saver Flexi Pass, it will allow you to travel with a 50% or 25% discount on the trains near Wengen. A Swiss Card may be an alternative, allowing a free transfer from the airport to Wengen and back, a 50% discount on all further trips, including the trains up to the Kleine Scheidegg, Grindelwald and the Jungfraujoch, whereas the Swiss Saver Flexi Pass offers a 25% discount here. A disadvantage is of course that there are no free travel days left for a longer trip to Zermatt: a 50% discount would apply to this trip too.

Apart from the discounts offered by your Swiss rail pass, you may need a ski pass indeed. The hiking and sledging pass may just be what you're looking for. An overview of all ski pass variants can be found at the Jungfrau railways ski pass overview.

Does that get you started? Best regards,
