My husband & I will be in Switzerland in September for 8 nights. We are flying in & out of Zurich. We will spend 3 nights in Lucerne (2 full days). While in Lucerne we will visit Pilatus & Titlus . We then do the train to Brienz & stay overnight & we will get the Brienze Rothom steam train. The next day we will get the boat to Interlaken. We will not stay in Interlaken but will catch the train to Wilerswill & go to Schynige Platte then continue on to Wengen & stay for 3 nights. Whilst in Wengen we will visit Schilthorn & Jungfraujoch. We will catch the train from Wengen to Interlaken then on to Zurich where we will spend one night before flying our in the morning. I have studied the Train passes on Myswissalps. An 8 day Swiss Travel Pass will cover all of the above except our last day in Zurich (just not train/bus from hotel to airport because this will be out 9th day) & cost CHF 485. The Bernese Oberland Pass will cover nearly all of the above. It doesn't include city travel in Lucerne (not sure we'd need it it) it is not clear if it covers the trip from Lucerne to Pilatus (can you confirm?) we would need to add on return trips from Zurich to Lucerne CHF 31 approx each way. Bernese Oberland Pass CHF 349 + 61 (return Zurich to Lucerne point to point ticket) = CHF410.
Are we better to pay more for the Swiss Pass CHF485 or just get the Bernese Oberland + point to point CHF410 ? Can anyone confirm that the Bernese Oberland Pass includes Pilatus? The difference is a total of CHF150 so the Bernese Oberland seems better value but I'm not sure....
