Hello Dee! You've probably received a map along with your Swiss Passes, indicating all routes on which the Swiss Pass is valid. If not, the map can be found on the Swiss Pass page
. A list of activities that have to be booked for isn't included, as most trips don't require booking in advance. Only special panoramic train routes, such as the Glacier Express and Bernina Expess, require booking in advance. More information on this is available at the seat reservation page
. Regular trains, mountain trains and cable cars don't require booking. Your grandparents can simply hop on and off trains, buses and boats which are for free, and buy discounted tickets for mountain railways and cable cars at the spot, right before boarding.
You should leave the part of your Swiss Pass which can be teared off right where it is. It probably has travel dates and other importation information printed on it, so don't tear it off. You may have to fill out names and passport numbers here and your grandparents should show the entire card, including this smaller part, to train conductors. Instructions on the use of your Swiss Pass should be included in the post you received (they can be printed on the back of the synoptic map as well), and it's important to follow these instructions.
An overview of all museums included in the Swiss Pass is available through the link 'Swiss Museum Pass', under the header 'Swiss Pass features', at the Swiss Pass page
Does this answer your questions?
