That's great that you can spend such a long time in Switzerland! The Swiss Pass also covers some train and bus services just across the border (including Liechtenstein). It's listed at the Swiss Pass page
, along with a link to a detailed map. There's no discount on anything that's not covered in the surrounding countries.
If you would travel to anything not covered by the Swiss Pass, e.g. the Black Forest, you would purchase a ticket in Bern and show your Swiss Pass. The railway personnel can then sell you a ticket that's free up until the Swiss border (Basel Bad Bf in this case).
Please note that the 1-year (or longer) Swiss Half Fare Card includes 25% discounts on tickets to Germany and Austria, but the 1-month Swiss Half Fare Card
does not offer such discounts. It's just valid on the network as displayed on the map. It does allow you to buy day tickets for unlimited traveling in Switzerland as an add on.
