I'm going from Zurich to Grindelwald for a week of hiking. Once I get to Grindelwald all our hiking will be in the Grindlewald/Lauterbrunnen/ Murren areas. Will a "Swiss Half Fare Card" get me half price on all travel necessary. Trains, moutain lifts, etc. Thank you, Dcholidy

Hi Dcholidy and welcome to MySwissAlps!

The Swiss Half Fare Card does indeed get you 50% off (nearly) all trips in Switzerland. You can find a PDF map of the coverage area here: https://www.myswissalp d/validity

You may also want to look at the Jungfrau Travel Pass as well.

To know which pass is the best for your specific itinerary you need to plan out all trips you will make (train, bus, boat, cable car) and compare the prices for regular tickets to the rail pass price (and which routes/mountains are free or discounted). Once you have that information you can read our page here on how to choose the best rail pass. There is a spreadsheet there to help with the math. :)
