Hi, we are flying to Geneva on April 27 for a Swiss adventure. We are a couple travelling with our 2 year old.
I really need advice on what Rail Pass to buy, if any? I have been researching for days and am so confused.
Here is our itinerary...
April 27 Arrive Geneva airport. Catch train to Montreux.
April 27-30 Stay in Montreux (maybe do a boat trip on the lake)
April 30 Train to Lauterbrunnen (not too fussed about taking a panoramic train, I think the regional one sounds fine)
May 1 Would like to catch the train up to Jungfraujoch. Then probably stay in Lauterbrunnen another night.
May 2 Maybe a night in Wengen.
May 3 and 4 Visit Lucerne and Bern.
May 5 Fly out of Zurich or Basel.
Sorry it gets a bit vague towards the end.
We were going to fly out of Zurich on May 1, but have just decided to extend our stay until the 5th. Yay!
As we are travelling with a 2 year old we are somewhat limited in what we can achieve each day. He isn't much of a museum fan, so we probably won't be visiting too many. Although I would love to see the Paul Klee in Bern.
Originally I thought that just buying regional tickets from the machines on the day would be fine. Now that we have extended our trip I am rethinking that.
Is a Swiss Pass the best option for us? If so, which one?
Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much.
