Hi,

I am planning to visit Switzerland in August for a month. I will be staying in Geneva (in my friend’s house) and travel around. The places that i am considering to visit are Zermatt (+Gornergrat), Bern, Lausanne, Zurich, Interlaken (+First mountain). Since I will not be traveling the whole month, i was planning to purchase a month-long half fare card fare. Or is there any better option? And for another, i will be visiting Interlaken for 3 days max., for mountain tracking and to go up to First. In this case, is it necessary to purchase an additional vip pass? Will the half fare card be able to have a discount on the funicular to First? In case that i visit other neighboring towns — Grindewald, Murren, and etc., i am wondering whether it would be optimal to purchase vip pass or not.

Thank you in advance for your answers! :)

Hi Sabrinaoo,

Welcome to MySwissAlps!

As you will be visiting for a month and planning to travel across multiple regions in Switzerland, I personally think the Swiss Half Fare Card would be a great investment. More details here: www.myswissalps.com/swisshalffarecard

For your information, the Jungfrau VIP Pass has been discontinued and replaced by the Jungfrau Travel Pass. This is the perfect pass for extensive and flexible travel in the Jungfrau region (Interlaken, Mürren, Grindelwald). The pass offers free traveling for 3 to 8 consecutive days without the need to get tickets for each trip.. And with a valid Swiss Half Fare Card, you can benefit from a 25% discount of the pass price. You can find more information about the Jungfrau Travel Pass here: www.myswissalps.com/jungfrautravelpass/price

You might also find the following links useful for your trip:

Regards,

Anna

And just so that you know, the Jungfrau Travel Pass is good for a certain number of days. What I mean by that is if you purchase a 3 day pass, it is good for 3 days, not 72 hours. If you buy it at 5:00 pm, you've already used one day starting at 5:00. Basically a wasted day.

I learned this the hard way when I purchased a card at noon and wasn't able to use it in the morning of the 4th day because it had expired the night before. i thought I had 72 hours.

But live and learn. I'll know the next time I go to Switzerland. I sure am looking forward to that!
