I am trying to figure out which of these passes to get.
We are from Australia and travelling in Switzerland between 4th and 12th July
1. Rotterdam to Bern on train(I am thinking this will be a separate booking as I don't think a Eurail select is the cheapest way to go).
2. staying with friends in Bern for 1 day
3. Between 6 -11 July we will be completely in the Bernese Oberland. WE have 3 nights booked in Wengen and 3 nights in Hasliberg. We will want to do lots of hiking but also toboganning/trotti bikes which some sites tell me are included in the Bernese Oberland pass.
My main confusion lies around whether becuase of using cable cars and mountain trains we will still be having to pay significant extra charges(as they are only half price and there are 5 of us) with the Swiss Pass. I don't know exactly how many of these non-covered transports we will use but it is bound to be at least 3 I would think. Then also if the other attractions are covered by the Bernese Oberland pass this will save us significantly.
4. On the 12th July we travel by train to Zurich airport for a mid-afternoon flight back home.
I would appreciate your thoughts.
