Annika said: Hello Kariba! Bern is considered to be an airport station too, so it's no problem to use the Swiss Card and that could be a good option for your stay indeed. Another option is the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland, offering free travel days and discounted traveling in the Wengen area. This is especially convenient if you plan to use mountain transportation quite intensively on some days. When will you be traveling? If it's next Fall, the 2 for 1 offer on the Regional-Pass would be a very economical deal.
Hikes in the Bernese Oberland are listed here.
Our travel is from 17 to 25 August, so unfortunately we can't get the 2 for 1 deal. The Regional Bernese Oberland Pass seems very worthwhile. We will be out hiking or sightseeing in the region on most days.
If we went with the regional pass would we just buy ourselves a ticket from Zurich Airport to Interlaken and then buy our pass there before carrying on to Wengen?
Please confirm that the trip from Wengen to Bern would then be covered by this pass on one of the free days of travel.
What about the couple who go back to Zurich? Would they be better getting a transfer card as well as the regional pass?
Thanks for your help. It can be confusing as to which is the best pass to choose. K
