My sister and I will be in Switzerland at the end of May for only 4 days so we'd like to complete our travels at the minimum of time and expense. I'll break down our travel itinerary for you to better understand me.
1. Lucerne 1.5 days (via Zurich). In Lucerne, we need to take the local train/ bus to and from Sonnenberg (accommodation) and from Sonnenberg to and from the sights. If there is a short (1hour or less) boat cruise around lake Lucerne, we'd love to take that.
2. Lucerne to Bernese Oberland 2.5 days. Lucerne to Interlaken Ost via Brunig Express. Accommodation would be in Murren.
The places we'll visit around Bernese Oberland are Lauterbrunnen, Harder Kulm, Wengen, Grindelwald, Kleine Scheidegg, Gimmelwald. In my understanding going to these places, my travels has to start in Lauterbrunnen. That being so, would our travels in that region look like these?
Murren to Lauterbrunnen to Wengen (+ return trips)
Murren to Lauterbrunnen to Harder Kulm (+ return trips)
Murren to Lauterbrunnen to Grindelwald to First (+ return trip)
Murren to Lauterbrunnen to Klein Sheidegg (+ return trip)
From Switzerland, we'll proceed to Colmar. So wherever is cheaper to board the train (Interlaken Ost or Bern), that is where we'll take the train to Colmar.
From Colmar to Strasbourg to Cochem or Rothenburg Ob de Tauber and finally to Munich.
So...😅 what pass would we best benefit from? Companion ticket? Eurail select pass? Or Bernese Oberland regional pass? I do not know how much our multi-country travel would amount to nor do I not understand the fares for mountain rails and or cable cars at jungfrau.ch (such as this:www.jungfrau.ch/en/tou rism/travel-information/tickets-rates/interlaken-ost/fares-for-individual-travellers/) so it has been very hard for me to calculate the cost of our travels and decide which pass to buy. Your help would be much appreciated. Thank you!
