Hello,

I am trying to figure out wherther buying the carte journaliere (CFF day pass), 35chf pays off for the day in Lauterbrunnen/Grindelwald area.

The itinerary would look something like this (I'm sorry, it's messy):

Take cable car from Lauterbrunnen to Wengen, or walk

Take the cableway from Wengen to Männlichen.

Then take the panoramic hiking trail to Kleine Scheidegg.

From Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch

Get railway back to Grindelwald

Sleep in Grindelwald

This day I have the option to use the carte journaliere (of 35chf) but not sure if it pays off. Can't figure out if Jungfraujoch is included or not.

Also,any other suggestions on how to use efficiently the pass just in this area are welcome.

Thanks a lot :)

Hi Jova and welcome to MySwissAlps!

I believe you are looking for the Saver Day Pass, right? You can see the validity map here: www.myswissalps.com/saverdaypass/validity. Make sure to download the map and browse the list.

Trains to Grindelwald or Wengen from Interlaken are for free, but from there you need to pay the whole price up to the Jungfraujoch. You'll find a useful guide with a calculation spreadsheet, which helps you to calculate your costs with and without the Saver Day Pass at www.myswissalps.com/train/ticketspasses/practical/chooserailpass. Ude this spreadsheet, it will help you a lot! Let me know if you need some help with it but probably you won't need any :)

Some other pages for you:

I hope this helps,

Ildiko

Hi Jova!

I'm not quite sure which pass you're referring to either, but apart from the Saver Day Pass mentioned by Ildikó, you may also have the 1-day travelpass in mind: www.myswissalps.com/onedaytravelpass. It's an add-on to the Swiss Half Fare Card (www.myswissalps.com/swisshalffarecard). You can find all details about the 1-day travelpass on the page I linked to.

In most cases, it makes sense to look at your entire itinerary and not just at one day, and then pick a pass that does justice to all of your plans. The page and spreadsheet provided by Ildikó should help you find out which pass is most economical for your stay in Switzerland.

Dear Annika and Ildiko,

Thank you so much for your kind and detailed replies.

I was referring to the ‘municipality day pass’, the one that you can buy at the local office. I believe it has the same coverage as Saver day pass that you suggested. In the end I decided not to buy it because the area between Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald is not covered by CFF, and I already have Half fare card which will be helpful.

Thanks again!

Hi Jova,

I am not sure what you mean under "the area between Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald is not covered by CFF". CFF is the same as SBB and FFS, just in different languages. But for sure, if you already have a Swiss Half Fare Card then you will already get 50% off everywhere (Wengen, Lauterbrunnen, Jungfraujoch). Here you can check the validity map of the Swiss Half Fare Card: www.myswissalps.com/swisshalffarecard/validity.
