I am going to be traveling in Switzerland for 5 days in May with 2 youth (ages 19 and 21). I have done the math again and again and still can't decide between the Swiss Pass and the Half Fare Card.
Day 1: Gossau to Berggasthaus Aescher
Day 2: Bergasthaus Aescher to Murren (via Lucerne)
Day 3: Murren area
Day 4: Murren area
Day 5: Murren to Domodossola
I think what is making it so difficult is I have no idea what all we will do during those open days in Murren. We are first time visitors and will be coming off 10 busy travel days in Prague, Salzburg and Munich areas. The Swiss Pass will only pay for itself if we do a lot of excursions during those 2 days - over to Wengen, maybe a boat cruise on Lake Thun, etc. I have lots of ideas of what we could do, but will we be so awestruck in Murren to want to stay close, day hiking, relaxing? We won't do the big Jungfrau trip unless we have a picture perfect day.
And then how much value do I give to the ease of the Pass vs buying tickets with the Half Fare Card?
i appreciate any suggestions from those with some experience. Thank you!
