Hello and thanks in advance for your help. I have been studying the types of Swiss passes and reading maps for several months. This is what I have concluded and would like someone to verify if I am understanding everything correctly.
We will be staying in Lauterbrunnen for 3 days in mid-May. We are wanting to walk as much as possible, but know most trails in higher elevations will be closed. However, walking from Murren/Gimmelwald is doable. Exploring Wengen, Wengernalp, Grindelwald, maybe First via cable car, and many of the other towns and lower elevation paths look great to us. Also, a quick trip to Interlaken to visit Harder Kulm is on the agenda. We would like to take the train ride up to Klein Scheidegg for views and, weather permitting, travel up to Junfraujoch. I have priced point to point tickets and compared to the Jungfrau Region Pass and Half Fare pass, and think the Jungfrau pass is the best option. My understanding is that trains/cable cars, etc., to all the places I have mentioned will be free with the pass EXCEPT Jungfraujoch. In that case we get a 50% discount from Eigergletscher to Top of Europe, making it way more affordable than without a pass. Do I have this right?
Thank you again.
