We will arrive in Zurich at 3:00 pm on June 11, 2016 and leave on June 19. We spent 4 magical days in the Bernese Oberland last summer thanks to all the advice from Arno, Annika and Slowpoke. The Mannlichen to Klein Scheidegg hike was a highlight. On our next trip, we are interested in easy hikes and scenic railways. We plan to buy the 8 consecutive days Swiss Rail Pass. I wanted to take advantage of the 30% discount that Arno posted, but it looks like I can purchase it only 180 days in advance. Is there a possibility for other discount offers in the near future? Also, I will be grateful for your feedback on our tentative itinerary. Thank you for your help,
