Dear fellow wanderlust travelers,

we we will be at Lauterbrunnen for 2 days n Lucerne for 2 days next week. We are having difficulty figuring out which will be a suitable rail pass to purchase. We wish to visit Stubbach falls n visit the main ridges within wengen n grimerwald. Then the rail to Lucerne? After that at Lucerne we wish to visit Mt Pilatus n Titlis. And the last train ride to Zurich. Appreciate your kind advice for a noob like me. Thanks in advance. We are Malaysians traveling to Europe for our anniversary and I would hate to disappoint my wife.

Hey vohkster!

I'm not a Swiss travel expert. But based on my research you should opt for the 4 day Bernese Oberland pass. It covers all your places except for Zurich. But utpo Lucerne would be free anyway, so tickets from Lucerne to Zurich won't be that expensive.

Check out this link and download the map there to see the validity area of the Bernese Oberland pass.

Hope this helps!

Thanks Arno and Jayy,

I will do the math and perhaps take your suggestion. One last thing, if I travel up by train from Como to Lauterbrunnen, I am not able to use any pass right?

Well, there's a pass for everything :-) Whether it makes sense to have a pass for all of your trips is a different matter. You may want to just buy a regular ticket for that leg, or a ticket until the point where the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland kicks in. If you would have a Swiss Travel Pass, nearly the whole route would be covered (see the map) and you would only need a very cheap additional ticket.
