Hi,
I will be travelling from St.Goarshausen(Germany) to Lucerne. Plan to stay in Lucerne for three nights.
Plan to take a train from Lucerne to Chur and then to Zematt. will stay in Zermatt for a few nights and then fly off from Zurich to London

What is the pass that I should get for train journey.

Should I get a Glacier express train ticket or can I use the Swiss pass

I plan to go to Mt Titlis. Can i use the train pass. Can the train pass allows me to use for the cable car up in Mt.Titlis and the Matterhorn.

Will appreciate your help. Never been to Switzerland but have 7 days holiday there. Also, will appreciate if you can tell me which place to visit in Switzerland and how many nights I have to spent in each location.

Thanks for your help.
Annika

Hello part188! If you plan to travel quite a lot, you can best consider an 8 day Swiss (Saver) Pass. It allows free traveling in regular trains, buses and boats and discounts on cable cars and mountain railways, such as the Titlis and viewing points surrounding Zermatt. You'll find details and a link to a map showing the validity area at the Swiss Pass page.

The Swiss Pass allows free traveling in the Glacier Express as well. You do need supplementary seat reservations though.

For a one week stay, I'd say that staying in two towns (Lucerne and Zermatt) is enough. I wouldn't add more, if I were you, so that you can take your time and explore the towns themselves and their surroundings at ease. The timetable will help you plan your trips.
