Hi sowmya, and welcome. Which pass is best, depends on what you want to do during your overnight stays in the resorts you mention. If you plan to make longer trips on most days, and like the idea of flexibility and free traveling, a 15 day Swiss Saver Pass is worth considering. If short and local trips are your main goal, a Swiss Half Fare Card might be convenient. But you should try to make a list of your travel plans and do some calculations to be sure. This FAQ can be of help too.

Hi sowmya,

Looking at your itinerary I would personally pick the 15-day Swiss Saver Pass. It's the most convenient option, you can use it during your entire stay and you're flexible as you can easily do some extra trips for free if you feel like it. I would recommend to decide on that quickly as an online purchase can be (much) cheaper than buying in Switzerland (depending on your country of residence). But you can best check yourself and see prices and delivery times for your country on this page. And don't forget these additional discounts!

It's up to you how you travel to the Europa Park. Both car and public transport are an option as Annika explained here.

Konstanz to Bern via Zurich is the quickest route. Alternatively, you can travel via Romanshorn - Luzern (this is the Voralpen-Express), and take the RegioExpress to Bern from there. It will take much more time, but the scenery is great. Please check the timetable for details.

You can best contact Engelberg Tourism for the bath.

Have fun!
