Hi. We will be traveling in Interlaken region for approx 6 days. I am having a hard time deciding which pass to get- Swiss Travel pass, Swiss Half fare card, or Jungfrau travel pass or both the Swiss half fare card and Jungfrau travel pass?

We will be traveling from Milan to Wengen? Which pass is best for that? What is the best option for this route?

Once in Wengen, hikes we plan on doing:

1. Wengen-Kleine Scheidegg-Grindelwald---do we pass through Mannlichen to get to Grindelwald through Kleine Scheidegg?

2. Wengen- Grutschalp-Murren

3. Grindlewald-Eiger Trail

4. Schynige Platte to First

5. Go up to Jungrfrau peak

6. Grindlewald-Grosse Schdiegg

7. Murren-Schilthorn

8. Murren- Gimmelwald

We plan to hike a lot. I am not sure what all we can cram in one day and what things we can pair things with.

Afterwards, we will head back from Wengen to Zurich and fly out.

So any tips on which pass to get and for how many days and how to consolidate our plan? Thanks.

Hi Gracie08,

It seems like you'll be based mainly in the Jungfrau region. For this reason, you might want to consider getting a5 or 6-day Jungfrau Travel Pass. For travel between Milan and Wengen/Interlaken, I suggest looking for point-to-point ticket deals here: www.myswissalps.com/traintickets/italy

If you want to be flexible or are planning day trips outside of the Jungfrau region, you would need a railpass that covers a bigger validity area. In this case a Swiss Travel Pass or the Regional Pass Bernese Oberland could work. Be sure to read this for useful information about how to choose the best railpass.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Anna

Thanks Anna for the help. So I bought tickets from Spiez- Wengen to use my half fare card but am trying to buy tickets from Milan to Spiez and the SBB website keeps saying “payment failed.” We’ve tried 2 different cards and none of them work. I called my credit company and said everything is good on their end. Why does this keep happening and how can I buy tickets? It seems like it’s a problem for many people and my credit card Company said if it was visa verification for 3-D secure, it should work and I receive a text message with a code but I don’t receive anything.

Hi Gracie08,

I am not sure what can be the problem with SBB.

Have you tried via these resellers? www.myswissalps.com/traintickets/italy/price

Please let us know how it goes,

Thanks,

Hi Gracie08,

Credit card problems can occur at the SBB website unfortunately, we've heard it before. I hope one of the other websites Ildikó mentioned works for you.
