Hi,

I had decided upon getting a Swiss Travel Pass for 8 days earlier but based upon some of the posting on the forum, I am now confused whether Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland will make more sense for me?

My schedule is somewhat like following -

Day 1 - Zurich Airport to Lucerne; later in the day to Titlis

[Staing 10-15 mins away by Bus from Lucerne Train station)

Day 2 - Pilatus; later in the day possibly Zug or Lake Lucerne

Day 3 - To Murren using Glacier Exp (Chur-Brig-Interlaken)

- Staying in Murren

Day 4 - Breakfast at Schiltron; later in the day, go to Schynige Platte

Day 5 - Jungfraujoch; later in the day Boating in Lake Brienz

Day 6 - Go tot Dijon (France) using Rail

We are planning to stay at Murren during our visit to Jungfrau region. My travel is scheduled for early Oct'16 and very soon I plan to buy the pass, so quick help will be appreciated.

Hi YashFamily,

The Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland won't be of much value during the first two days. It does not include the trip to Lucerne, Pilatus, Zug and Lake Lucerne. The trip to Engelberg/Titlis is only discounted. A Swiss Travel Pass makes more sense. That would also cover your trip to the Swiss border on your way to France.

I would say you need:

  1. The Swiss Travel Pass. You can buy it from any of the websites listed here.
  2. A ticket from the border (usually Basel) to Dijon, available from any of the websites listed here.

Thanks Arno.. Will a combination of STP (3 days) & Regional Pass (4 days) way to go ?

Based out of Murren, what do I gain/ lose between STP vs Regional Pass?

You're most welcome!

That combination would work, just like the combination of the Tell-Pass and Regional-Pass. But it's pricey to buy two passes. I think you're much better off by simply buying one 8 day Swiss Travel Pass. You can do the math as explained here if you want.

Our passes pages have maps that show exactly what's covered, so that's a good way to compare:
