I would love some advice. My husband and I are traveling to Switzerland at the end of July, for the first time! I have been spending hours trying to determine if it's best for us to purchase a Swiss half Fare card for trains and activities, or to just buy the Swiss Flex Pass.
We are flying into Salzburg for 3 days, then plan on taking the train to Lucerne for 4 days, then on to Murren for 3 days, and then to Bern for 2, and then to Zurich to fly home. Was thinking the flex pass for 4 non consecutive days would work, but now I am questioning myself. Do the 3 legs of transportation to get to Murren count as one trip? And is the flex pass for a day of travel, regardless of how many different trains you get on? or is it per train? I was also thinking to just take the train from Salzburg to Buchs, and then getting off and grabbing a different train to get us to Lucerne, using the flex pass.
So I guess my question, is which would make more sense? I wasn't able to find how much the trip is from Lucerne to Murren, so that didn't help me determine if it was cheaper to get the flex pass or to just show up and buy individual tickets per trip with the half fare card.
Thank you so much for any help or advice you can give me. Very, very excited for our trip, and I just want to make sure I purchase the best choice for us.
