Our family of 2 adults & 3 kids (aged 12, 10 & 10) will be in Lauterbrunnen for 2 nights 25th & 26th June. We are using our eurail pass to get from Lyon to Interlaken (via Geneva and Bern) on the 25th and have reserved seats for this journey. Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen is not covered with the eurail pass and therefore will need to work out our best option for the 25th, 26th & 27th.
-on the 26th we are planning on travelling to Jungfraujoch (maybe leave early on a good morning pass)
-on the 27th we need to been in Zurich for an overnight train to Berlin @ 20h00. (We would prefer to travel via Luzerne)
Would the Half Fare Card with a Family pass be our best choice? I understand that the trip to Jungfraujoch gives HFC pass holders a discount of 25%. But I'm unsure if children travel for free on this trip or if they just receive the 25% discount as well.
On our trip to Zurich, we would consider enjoying a scenic train journey. Am I correct at assuming we do not need to reserve any seats for our travel for these days, and just purchase point to point tickets? With all our other travel plans in place I'm just concerned that we should be more organised with our train travel in Switzerland.
