Hi

I will fly from Singapore to Zurich and then spend next 4 days to explore Lauterbrunnen, visit Gimmerwald, Murren, Grinderwald, Schirltorn, Jungfrau. After that, on 5th day, I will travel to Italy and Austria and finally back to Zurich on 14th day. Will fly back to Singapore on the 15th day. Hope to have advice on the best value combination of rail travel pass. Thanks very much.

Hi GOHL, welcome to our MySwissAlps!

If you intend to do intensive traveling in Italy and Austria as well, a Eurail Select Pass may suit your needs. If only a few train transfers are involved, you'd better consider regular tickets for Italy and Austria. You can only tell for sure by making a detailed list of plans and calculating as explained here.

For the Swiss leg of your journey, it's better to look into Swiss rail passes as Eurail Passes don't provide the best coverage, especially for the region you'll be exploring. The Swiss Half Fare Card could be a good option. It's valid during one month and will thus provide a 50% discount on all of your rail trips in Switzerland, including the last portion to Zurich on day 14. Again, calculations would have to prove whether this is indeed the best choice.

When doing the maths and looking for prices in the timetable, please make sure to avoid typos. Otherwise the timetable may not be able to recognize your destinations. E.g.: Gimmelwald, Grindelwald, Schilthorn.
