Welcome to MySwissAlps Scarlett!

1. You can do a boat trip to Zurich, a city walk in the historical center of Zug, a boat trip on Lake Zug, visit Mount Säntis. There are more tips in this topic.

2. You'll find suggestions on the Lucerne page.

3. You'll find suggestions on the Bernese Oberland page.

Our planning page may be useful too.

Hello scarlett!

Some days of your itinerary are quite full, to be honest. It will all be doable, but you'll have to count on long days and quite tiring traveling times. Did you check the timetable? If you're fine with the duration of your trips, it's fine of course; if you doubt whether you'll appreciate such long days, I'd advise to make some alterations.

  • As for combining two mountains on one day: it you start early, it is possible. But your travel pace will be more relaxed if you skip either Pilatus or Rigi, and do one of them on another day using the 50% discount. It's indeed wise to use a free travel for your trip to the Rigi, as that will be entirely for free.
  • October 18 will be a very long day. It's certainly a nice train ride towards Montreux, but a single trip takes about 3h30.
  • October 22: this too is a long day, although it's doable. If weather is good, it's certainly a good idea to catch the train up to Schynige Platte: views will be wonderful. If not, just the hike Grütschalp-Mürren will be rewarding too.

Yes, the Swiss Travel Pass Flexi Combi allows you to travel with a 50% discount on non-free travel days. Please note that this only goes for days in between your first and last free travel day. After your last free travel day, the 50% discount doesn't apply anymore, as explained at www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpassflex/howt ouse.

I'm not sure if you've already ordered your pass. If not, it's best not to wait too long, since you'll be departing in 1-2 weeks, and delivery may take up to approximately 5 days. Please review purchase options at www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpassflex/pric e, and make sure to pick the Combi variant from the drop-down list at the right. In your case, it would be best to order through www.raileurope-gcc.com.

And, I just checked the timetable and the train to Schynige Platte is indeed running on October 22.
