Hello! We are travelling to Switzerland in July and would love your opinion as to our plans (we are really looking forward to it!). We will be arriving in Zurich on the 2nd and travelling by train to Grindelwald for 4 nights. Whilst there we would like to visit Jungfraujoch, First and have a a day to do a walk (maybe the Eiger trail). We will then go to Zermatt by train for 3 nights. Here we would like to visit Gornergrat and Klein Matterhorn. We then travel back to Zurich and fly out on the 9th.
We are intending to purchase an 8 day Swiss Travel Pass.
Is it worth it to purchase a first class pass as opposed to 2nd class?
Do we have to also reserve seats on all these trains/cable cars particularly for first class?
Which trains/cable cars would we need to purchase 50% tickets for - is it only to Jungfraujoch, Gornergrat and Klein Matterhorn?
We are a bit nervous about making these bookings so your advice is appreciated.
