Hi all,

We are 5 from India - 3 youth and 2 adults travelling to Europe this September end. We would reach Zurich on 23rd and would travel to Interlaken on 24rth morning. We would be spending 3 nights there and following is our itinerary.

24rth - Travel from Zurich to Interlaken OST(train) ; visit places around - Lake Thun, St. Beatus Caves etc nearby (bus - covered via pass?)

25th - Visit Jungfraujoch and back to Interlaken(train)

26th - Adventures at Interlaken and places around for the rest of the day

27th - Travel from Interlaken to Venice(train) in the morning

Can you suggest on which is the best way (with or without pass) to travel the above destinations?

If taking a pass is recommended, which pass is best suitable?

Many thanks in advance,

Arno

Hi findingnemo,

Good to hear you'll be visiting Switzerland soon! I would recommend the Swiss Half Fare Card. It allows you to buy all your tickets with a 50% discount. A Swiss Travel Pass is more convenient (no tickets required except for mountain trips), but I expect it to be more expensive in your case.

Swiss Half Fare Card purchase options can be found here. In your case I recommend to purchase it via www.raileurope.co.in/ pass/swiss-half-fare-card. Delivery is free and takes 5 days, so don't wait to long with your order.

Enjoy your stay!

Thanks for this reply.

Is it true that with swiss half card, we must travel for consecutive days?

Thanks,

Hi bluefairy,

No, that's not true. It's solely up to you when, where and how much you travel. All the details can be found on our Swiss Half Fare Card page: myswissalps.com/ swisshalffarecard.

Thanks admin, for the useful information. I just wanted to ask that what are economical travel options for 2 adults traveling from Laussane to interlaken, and then interlaken to lucerne and zurich from 1st to 4 October. What are sightseeing options attached with each of above location ? Also if we opt one Swiss half fare card, will it be enough for two of us, or do we need to purchase separate cards. Thanks.
