Need some help from your guys who are the experts.
We are planning to visit a friend who is staying in Basel in July and in between we will go to Wengen on 2 nights and travel out from Basel to other parts like Luzern, Zurich, Bern and even Frieburg.
Not sure if we should buy a swiss train pass and if so, which one?
Our itinerary is such:
Day 1: Arrive in Basel. Sightseeing in Basel.
Day 2: Basel to Wengen. Visit Jungfrau.
Day 3: Wengen to Trümmelbachfalle, Murren back to Wengen.
Day 4: Wengen to Luzern. Visit Pilatus. Travel back to Basel.
Day 5: Basel to Zurich visit Zurich. Back to Basel.
Day 6: Basel to Frieburg and back to Basel.
Day 7: Basel to Bern, Fribour and Gruyere. Back to Basel.
Day 8: Basel to Zurich Airport and depart back home.
If I am not wrong, the pass only allows 15% discount from Wengen to Jungrau.
This is the same for the trip to Pilatus from Luzern.
Also if we were to use the Swiss transfer card, from Basel to Wengen do they allow the travel on the next day after arrival?
And for Fribour, we are going to the Chocolate factory and Gruyere. Is it wise to use the public transport or to drive from Bern?
Is really a little confusing so appreciate if someone can enlighten us on this.
