I would like to seek for advices on selecting a Pass.

I plan to have a trip to 3 of the European countries in late July to early August. The following is my current plan.

  • 2 days in Prague
  • 2 days in Salzburg
  • 8 days in Switzerland (will be travelling around the country, including most major cities)

As I am now planning ahead, I am not sure if I should get a 3-country Eurail pass OR point-to-point tickets from Prague - Salzburg and Salzburg to Zurich , and the rest in Switzerland I will get a Swiss Travel Pass instead.

As Eurail pass doesn't give free public transportation in both Prague and Salzburg, I am considering the Pass just because of the border crossing routes. And Eurail Pass does not have free admission to museums, I am wondering if it's better to get the Swiss Travel Pass in Switzerland and point-to-point for the two cross-country routes.

Appreciate for any feedback/advice.

Hi kargee,

In that case your second option makes sense (you can verify as explained here). The information about the pass and tickets can be found here:
