Hi..

1. if i travel and purchase train ticket directly from Zurich HB to Lauterbrunnen, can I get -off at the middle station/city e.g. Bern or Interlarken for short city sight seeing? Then continue use the same ticket to go to Lauterbrunnen where i would stay for 4 days.

2. If i have one full free day, Is it possible for me to visit and go around Bern and Lucerne (from Zurich). Is it advisable do this in one day? If not which city is preferred and worth to go?

3. is there luggage storage at Bern and Interlarken station?

4. Is there any skiing activity (for children) at Jungfraujoch Snow Fun Park?

5. Do i need winter clothing to visit Top f Europe on 21st July? Or some sweater is good enough?

Thanks,

--mazlan

Hi Mazlan81 and welcome to MySwissAlps!

  1. Yes you can. Regular (non SuperSaver tickets) are valid all day. Super Saver tickets are noted on the timetable with a % sign and offer cheaper prices. https://www.myswissalp s.com/timetable
  2. If you don't want to explore Zurich, then either Lucerne or Bern are options yes. The best city for you depends on what you want to see and do. https://www.myswissalp s.com/zurich/activitie s, https://www.myswissalp s.com/lucerne/activiti es, https://www.myswissalp s.com/bern/activities
  3. Yes. Lockers for about 7chf per day (you need coins).
  4. There is a link to the snow park website which explains what you can do here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/jungfraujoch - link under "more on other websites:
  5. I'd have a good sweater and a wind or rain coat with you as well. Check the weather before you go up so you know what to expect. Could be sunny, rainy or snowing.... o degrees or 15. :)

Thanks for the answers.

For question #1, if i purchased the regular ticket using Swiss Half Fair Pass, still can be used all day?

Others has been answered and fully understood. :) Thanks.

Yes, Half Fare tickets are fine as well.

It is just the SuperSaver tickets that are valid for only the train departure you buy it for.
