Hi Sir,

We appreciate all your help in guiding us. (for us the cost & expenses are very important and want to save as much we can during this trip of 4 days)

I will be travelling to Switzerland along with my wife and made the below plan and have few questions?

Day 1: Ariving Zurch @9:15 AM,

Zurich Airport to Interlaken

(booked Jungfrau Hotel in Wilderswil - 10 -12 mins from Interlaken OST)

Our Hotel is providing Visitors Card Interlaken - is it free to use in any region in Interlaken ???

Also we would like to explore Areas in and near Interlaken and also want to travel to Jungfrau.

What would be the cheapest option to travel to Jungfrau.

Day 2 & 3 : Interlaken to Lucern (staying one night in Lucerne)

We would like to visit Mount Titlis and surrounding scenic area.

Day 4: Lucerne to Zurich (staying one night in Zurich)

Exploring Zurich Lake and Zurich City also visiting to Rheinfall.

Request to please suggest us the cheapest option for travelling as per the above itinerary.

Also if you can please calculate the fare if possible, we'll really appreciate it.

Thanks you Sir

There is only one way to go to Junfrau (Jungfraujoch is what you mean, i presume): by train. 2nd class is the cheapest.

To go from Zurich to the Rheinfall you could hitchhike for free (to Schaffhausen). Otherwise, again, 2nd class train ticket.

Look at the upper right side of your screen: "Get a customized itinerary for your trip". Maybe you can get additional advice.

Good luck, Snowman.

Hi Ahmed,

The Interlaken Visitors Card covers a limited area only, roughly between Beatenberg and Wilderswil, see the link on www.myswissalps.com/in terlaken/hotels.

For details on how to calculate if a pass saves you money, please see www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass. With Jungfraujoch included the Swiss Half Fare Card will save you money for sure: www.myswissalps.com/sw isshalffarecard. But the Swiss Travel Pass is an option as well: www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass.
