First, thank you to all previous posts from the community. They helped me to learn enough to do my homework and now ask the right questions.
I have a specific trip planned, and would like to know what is the best pass to purchase. I also would like to know if I get on a train from Milan, do I have to buy an Italian ticket to stop in Chiasso, or can I be on a train (Like EC 52 from Milano to Brig with stops in Stresa and Domodossola and only pay for the Italian part to Chiasso?) The reason I ask, is that buying a ticket from Milano to Chiasso, adds many hours to my trip vs. EC52, then RE 3270 through Kandersteg)
24 April already have Italian tickets from Manarola to Milano Centrale arrivng at 10:50.
24 April Milano to Lauterbrunnen. Would like to go via Kandersteg (Open to suggestions for this leg of trip for most scenic route) (Does this qualify as a 'most direct route' for Swiss Flexi or Swiss Card, or Transfer Card rules?)
Will hotel in Lauterbrunnen for 3 nights.
25 April Travel to Jungfraujoch (only 25% off roudtrip according to area of validity) OR gondola's, cable cars, visit Muerren, Wengen
26 April Jungfraujoch (if not completed on 25 April) Gondola, cable cars, Wengen, Interlaken if weather is bad.
27 April Lauterbrunnen to Munich Airport would like to travel to Romanshorn, then ferry to Friedrichshafen
We have all day, can arrive very late to Munich Airport, staying in hotel located in aiport terminal.
Again, if we take a more scenic route to Munich (suggestions, maybe some towns to stop over for a few hours?), does this qualify as 'most direct route' for Swiss Passes?
28 April Depart Munich 12:15
If the routes above do not qualify as 'most direct route' can you tell me what is the most direct route from Chiasso to Lauterbrunnen and then from Lauterbrunnen to Munich?
Thank you very much for any help you can give.
