Hello again, I have done my calculations and feel that the Swiss Travel Pass Flex Combi (8day) pass would be best for us for our trip. Here is our itinerary at this stage…
Day 1 (June 22): Lake Como to Lucerne: train to Fluelen, then take a scenic boat to Lucerne. We will site see Lucerne for the rest of the day, and most of day 2. (travel pass day #1)
Day 2 (June 23): Lucerne to Grindelwald via train in the latter part of the afternoon. Settle into our accommodation at Grindelwald, which we will use as our base for the next few days. (travel pass day #2)
Day 3 (June 24): Grindelwald to Gadmen (return). Here we will go to the Thrift Bridge. (Do you know if the cable car to the Thrift Bridge is covered by our passes?) (travel pass day #3)
Day 4 (June 25): Grindelwald to Trummellbach Falls. We also plan on to site see other areas/towns in the area – time permitting. (travel pass day #4)
Day 5 (June 26): Grindelwald to Jungfraujoch. We will use the Half Fare Card for today.
Day 6 (June 27): Grindelwald to Brig via train, then do the 2nd class travel version of the Glacier Express (fully covered by our pass) finishing up in Chur. We will overnight in Chur, then spend the next morning site seeing in the city. (travel pass day #5)
Day 7 (June 28): Chur to Wasserauen (or somewhere close by). Site see in the area where we decide to stay overnight. (travel pass day #6)
Day 8 (June 29): Wasserauen to Burggasthaus Aescher, where we will stay the night. (travel pass day #7)
Day 9 (June 30): Burggasthaus Aescher back to Wasserauen, then travel onwards to Zurich. We will stay overnight, then catch our flight the next morning. (travel pass day #8)
Day 10 (July 1): Zurich to the Airport (extra cost)
I am happy for any advice/suggestions for trip improvements.
Lastly, With the Swiss Travel Pass Flex - do we nominate our travel days as we go throughout our trip (day by day), or do they all have to be chosen and nominated when we first use our pass at the start?
