I am searching for train routes for a trip in October. The journeys seem to include different types such as: RE 3207IR towards Luzern, IC towards Interlaken Ost, BUS towards Lauterbrunnen, ICE 1061R 149

Would you advise on buying tickets in advance or from the station there?Is there some sort of a day/week pass which includes all types of transportation?

thanks.
