My wife, daughter (9yo), and I are traveling to Europe this summer. One of the jewels in our trip is an 8 day train trip throughSwitzerland. At first I thought weneeded an 8 day Swiss pass, but now I think differently. Here is our itinerary:
Arrive in Luzern from Rothenburg via Frankfurt.
Day 1-boat & train, Luzern to Mt.Pilates & return (no cable car)
Day 2-train, Luzern to Interlaken
Day 3-train, Interlaken to Jungfrau, return
Day 4-train to Zermatt
Day 5-train, Zermatt to Matterhorn (Gornergrat),return
Day 6-train, Zermatt to Chur (next day inChur too)
Day 8-train, Chur to Tirano
I think I need a 4 day Swiss flexi pass to cover 1- Luzern to Interlaken, 2- Interlaken to Zermatt, 3- Zermatt to Chur and4- Chur to Tirano. Is that correct?
I think the side trips to Alpnachstad & Mt Pilatus, Jungfrau, and Gornergrat (Matterhorn) are discounted with a Swissflexi pass, but not covered by the flexi pass. Is that correct?
I also think that a Swiss flexi pass is financially better for our trip (gives the best discounts in Switzerland) than a Eurail pass for 7 countries. Is that correct?
Thanks for your help.
