    There’s some great info on passes, but I couldn’t find the exact answer I was looking for.

    We are flying into Zurich in May. We’ll be spending 2 days in Lucerne, 5 days in Grindelwald, 2 days in Montreux, then on to France. After adding up all the various trains rides, gondolas, boats, etc, it looks like it’s cheapest way is to just get the Half Fare Card. The Jungfrau Pass (with the Half Fare) is slightly more, and the Berner Oberland pass (with the Half Fare) is slightly more than that. My thinking is that it is worth it to pay a little more for the Jungfrau or BO pass, just so we don’t have to buy individual tickets, and we can make extra trips without having to think about the cost.

    My main question is, do we need to buy any of the above passes before we get there, or can they all be purchased in Switzerland? And if so, where? Interlaken? Any major rail station?
