First I want to thank you for such an excellent web site. It is nice to see the good information exchanged by local people. Thank You!

We arrive in Basel on May 15 and travel to Lauterbrunnen by train via two days in Lucern. After spending 6 days there we travel by train to Zurich for an additional 3 days before flying homeward . All travel in Switzerland will be by train. Is the Switz pass the best option?

Will there still be snow on the ground in places like Muren and Gimmelwald and will the lifts be open?

Again, thank you for your assistance.

Roger

Hi Roger,

I'm glad you like our website! The Swiss Travel Pass seems a logical choice, but it really depends on which day trips you plan to do. The town to town transfers will probably be less expensive than the cable car and cogwheel train rides you will need to go up into the mountains. The Swiss Travel Pass gets you a 50% discount on most of those. Some are free (Rigi and the trip to Mürren for example), and the Jungfraujoch trains are discounted by 25%. All details are explained here. And here's explained how to find the best pass.

There won't be much snow left in Mürren and Gimmelwald in May, but an occasional snow storm can occur any time of the year. Not all lifts will be open as it's an "in between season", between Winter and Summer. Check the Swiss timetable for the lifts you have in mind, or check the links to timetables on any of our attraction pages.
