This forum is so informative, just spent the whole day reading through the replies and have a pretty good idea on getting the SWISS PASS for my 4 day trip to Switzerland.
I am intending to travel up to Jungfraujoch from Bern via Interlaken with the SWISS PASS. I know the SWISS PASS only covers me from Bern to Lauterbrunnen/Grindelwald and I get a 25% discount off the rest of the journey up to Jungfraujoch.
With the SWISS PASS, i do not have to make any reservations on the trains right? So I can just hop on the train from Bern at anytime?
How do I make payment for the trip from Lauterbrunnen/Grindelwald to Jungfraujoch? Do I buy the tickets only at Lauterbrunnen/Grindelwald or do I buy them from Bern before I start the journey?
I also noticed some price discrepancies. When I seleect a one-way trip from Bern to Jungfraujoch on the SBB website, the cost per person is 66.80 CHF. However, if I were to buy the Jungfrau tickets from Lauterbrunnen with my SWISS PASS, I still have to pay 72.30 CHF after my discount.
Why is it that a one-way trip from Bern without a SWISS PASS is much cheaper than getting a discount with the SWISS PASS?
Appreciate anyone's reply!
