Hello MySwissAlps team,
Thank you for your first answer to my question!!
My trip is less than one month away and I am still confused about how to buy the train passes.
1. It seems that I can purchase the train pass with a US passport when I reach Zurich (at the train station)? It may be slightly expensive but since there is no shipping costs the total price seems lower - is that correct?
2. Even if I have the train pass, I still have to book a seat reservation when I I want to make a specific train trip, is that correct?
My itinerary is still same (as I listed above in Jan). So the Swiss Card is the best option because it includes the initial round trip trip from Zurich to Interlaken (and return to Zurich). My only concern is not to pay too much for a pass in case the weather is not good for mountain train trips - meaning, I would prefer to have the pass include the Zurich to Interlaken trip and the Interlaken to Lucern round trip but keep everything else unstructured, Is the Swiss Card still the best pass option for us??
thank you so much,
