My husband and I are going to be ending a river cruise in Basel in September on a Sunday morning and are trying to figure out the best rail tickets purchases. We know how to get there but are confused trying to figure out if we should buy a pass or individual tickets. We are both over 60, but that doesn’t seem to elicit any extra discount. We are looking at the train from Basel to Interlaken. Then Interlaken to Gimmelwald for three days via train to Lauterbrunnen, bus connection to Stechelberg and cable car up to Gimmelwald doing the reverse back to Interlaken and then to Zurich the following Wednesday and staying one night in Zurich. The next morning we take our flight home. We have our accomodations in Gimmelwald and Zurich. The rail passes vs individual purchases is very confusing. Can anyone who has experience in this help? Thanks!
