Welcome to MySwissAlps Cecilia!

In your case, a Swiss Half Fare Card makes sense. You'll be making short trips mostly, and that's where a Swiss Half Fare Card comes in handy. A 4 day Swiss Travel Pass would require you to buy an additional ticket for day 1, and an 8 day Swiss Travel Pass would be a bit too much for your 6 day stay.

Purchase options for the Swiss Half Fare Card are listed here.
