I will be in Switzerland in July, starting with a week in Adelboden and then 4 days in Zurich. I have a lot of questions about itinerary and tickets.
I am trying to figure out if I should get a half fare card or just do point-to-point tickets. I know the fairs for trips I will definitely take ( Zurich Flughaven to Adelboden Post, then back to Zurich.
Because a lot of flights from here have been re-scheduled, I'm thinking I should NOT buy tickets for specific trains (saver/super saver) but wait until I arrive. Does that make sense?
Also, we have passes for local transit in Adelboden and the neighbouring valley through our hotel. I know there is LOTS to do in the 2 locations but would like an opinion on whether I should plan to go to the Junfrauhoch from there (definitely if there is inclement weather in Adelboden) or if I should concentrate on those 2 valleys.
I would also like to have a weather contingency plan for our Zurich (Dubendorf) stay -I have been to Pilotus from there....what would be your top recommendation for a trip from Zurich?
I am having difficulty figuring out travel around Zurich as we will be staying in Dubendorf which is just outside Zurich. On a previous trip, I know we bought a one day pass each day we would do things in Zurich (we had help buying the tickets) and I remember Dubendorf is in an outer 'zone' so you have to account for that( I think zone 2) Do I need to use the ZVV app instead of the SBB app? Would I buy a ticket to Zurich HB from SBB, then one to Dubendorf?
There are multiple 24h ticket packages Zurich transit...can you buy a 6 pack but use it for 2 people?
Sorry for so many questions...planning an itinerary is overwhelming....Every location is beautiful and it's hard to narrow down an itinerary!
Thank you for your help!
