Whats is the best way to travel from Zurich to Interlaken , Zurich- Bern-Interlaken or Zurich- Luzern - Interlaken as I don't see any direct express train. I'm having a Swiss travel pass.

Hello Hisham,

Both routes are entirely covered by your Swiss Travel Pass and you can make it dependant on your priorities and time. Use the timetable to check out how long which route takes.

If you travel via Bern you can stop over and visit the Capital of Switzerland, if wanted, and if you travel via Lucerne and the Brünig pass you can see Lucerne and have the option to hop of the train in more rural, mountainous areas like e.g. Lungern or Meiringen if you feel like it.

The 'express' train route is the one via Bern. The complex pattern of Swiss inter city routes creates direct services between most major points, but Zurich Interlaken isn't one of them sadly. Somewhere along the route you have to change trains. Online planners will often tell you to change in Bern, but it is more pleasant to change at Spiez - an open station with only a few platforms with views across the lake - much nicer then Bern's large, dingy, busy main station.
