We’re traveling from Basel to Murren for 3 days. We would like to do the Schlithorn if the weather cooperates. Then traveling to Zurich for the flight out. From the calculations I’ve done, it seems like we’re close to breaking even with a Swiss Travel Pass, or half fare card.
1. if we’re planning to do some hiking and other sightseeing around the Murren area, would we likely be using cable cars and/or trains? If so, would that make it even more advantageous to purchase a pass?
2. Also, can we purchase a pass in the train station at Basel or does it need to be purchased in advance?
