I need advice about which Swiss rail pass to buy. We are agroup of 9 women who will be hiking around the Bernese Oberland in September.Here are the trains and cable cars we will be using:

Day 1-Zurich airport to Murren
Day 2-cable car to Shilthorn-up and down
Day 3-funicular to Allmandhubel-up only
Day 4-cogwheel train from Wilderswil to Schynige Platte only
Day 5-no rail
Day 6-Pfingstegg cable- up and down
Day 7-Mannlichen cable up only, train to Jungfraujoch
Day-8 train from Wengen to Lauterbrunnen
Day-9 no rail
Day 10- no rail
Day 11-train from Murren to Luzern
Day 12-train from Luzern to Zurich airport

We will all be traveling together except for the last 2days. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hello linny130,

I would say that you consider either the Swiss Card (which includes the transfer to and from Mürren for free and 50% discounts on further trips) or the Swiss Card combined with Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland (which includes free unlimited traveling about everywhere in the Bernese Oberland). In the latter case, you'll get a 25% discount on the Regional-Pass. You can get both passes in the Swiss Railways webshop.

Feel free to let me know if you have further questions. Please include your country of residence in that case.
