Hello, I am taking my two grandchildren ages 14 and 17 to Europe this summer. We plan on leaving Zurich to Wengen on July 22 for 6 days. Then to Munich on the 28th. There is so much information re: the Swiss travel passes and I have been researching for months to figure out what is best. At present I think the Jungfrau Area pass for 6 days looks promising. Can you answer me these few questions please:
1. What other ticket/pass do I need to buy to get from Zurich to Wengen? At present I calculated a 5 day Jungfrau pass at $714 but do I need to add in the cost of getting from Zurich to the Jungfrau area and then single pricing for the cable cars etc?.
2. Would a Swiss Travel Pass be more economical? At present I think I calculated an 8 day pass for $788.
3. Does it make more sense to just purchase the Swiss Travel Pass because the cable cars etc in Lauterbrunnen are half price with this pass.?
What ticket do I then buy to get us to Munich on the 28th? I assumed I would take train back to Zurich then another to Munich. Is this an SBB ticket or a German Rail ticket.
Any help would be appreciated as I have a pile of papers that I cannot make sense of.
