Hi,

I am traveling from Colmar, France into Bern, Switzerland on April 29th, we are 2 adults and 2 children. I have a Swiss pass and a family card and was wondering: when I reserve the train tickets from Colmar into Bern, can i use the swiss pass or family card to get a discount on the train tickets through Sbb.ch?

Thank you and Best regards,

Ana

Hi Ana,

You don't need to reserve train tickets: most, if not all, trains from Colmar to Basel (Swiss border) do not require seat reservations. All trains from Basel to Bern are included in the Swiss Travel Pass and you don't need to book seats either.

So, you only need a ticket for the French leg of your trip: Colmar to Basel. You can buy those from any of the sites listed on myswissalps.com/ traintickets/france/ price. As you live in the US you can take a look at www.raileurope.com/eur opean-trains/tgv-lyria/how-to-book.html. Select "No" if they ask if you travel with a rail pass.
