I will travel to Switzerland for 8 days from March 27 to April 3 with two children, age13 and 15 years old. I will buy an 8-day Swiss travel pass for myself and I will get the free family card for my children to travel unlimited in Switzerland. I plan to visit Luzern from March 27 to March 30. My hotel offers a 2- day winter Tell pass which will be great because it covers for many of the cable car and cogwheel transportation in Lucerne that the SwissTravel pass does not cover. MY question: If the tell pass allow me free cable to Mount Pilatus, will my children be able to travel free using the family travel card or do they need a child's Tell card?Thank you!!ao

Hello Ngocvu527,

I think you would need a Kids Pass ( mer/info_tips/kids_off ers/)

Maybe you can talk hotel into being generous?

Or seeing you already will have a Swiss Travel Pass and Swiss Family Card maybe the hotel will reduce the room rate?

Indeed you pay for the kids too, but a very low amount: ll passwinter/price.
