I've been reading this forum and it has been of great help but I have a pretty specific question with a lot of detail. I would appreciate any help I can get. My wife and I are planning a vacation to Switzerland and Austria this April and we are from the US. Here is our Itinerary as it stands now:
We fly into Zurich Saturday morning.
Saturday morning we take the train to Interlaken and then onto Jungfraujoch and the back to Interlaken where we spend the night.
Sunday we take the train/bus from Interlaken to Leukerbad where we we will spend the night.
Monday morning we wil take the bus/train/Glacier Express from Leukerbad to Bad Ragaz, spending the night in Bad Ragaz.
Tuesday morning we take the train from Bad Ragaz to Salzburg where we will stay for the night.
Wednesday afternoon we take the train from Salzburg to Vienna where we will stay until we fly home Sunday morning from Vienna.
Ok to summarize we will be on the Swiss trains for 3 days and Austria for 2 utilizing both the Glacier Express and the Jungfraujoch private railways.
So here is the big question; Is it better for us to:
A. Buy a Eurail Saver Swiss-Austria pass for 5 days and pay for the Glacier Express
B. Buy a Swiss pass Saver for 3 days and tickets to Salzburg & Vienna
C. Buy two Swiss Half Price Cards and tickets to Salzburg & Vienna
D. Any better suggestion
I would really appreciate any help that could be provided.
