We are heading to Grindelwald in early October. The plan is to do 5 days of hiking, day walks catching trains and/or lifts up the mountains and then walking downhill.

My questions are....

Is it worth getting a rail pass and which is the best option for this region?

Should I pre-purchase or wait until I get there?

Hi hut3boy and welcome to MySwissAlps!

If you are looking for a rail pass only for this region then you want to look at the Jungfrau Travel Pass (or for a larger travel area the Regional Pass - Bernese Oberland).

You can read about costs and the areas the passes cover on their links.

The only way to know the most economical option is to, fortunately, do the math. We have an Excel sheet here to use once you know what trips by train, cable car boat, bus etc. you plan to make.

The other option is to buy the Swiss Half Fare Card. You will still have to buy tickets for every trip but every trip is discounted 50%. This way you can leave things open a bit more on your itinerary and know at least that every trip is half off.
