Hi Mahimakshank,

Welcome to MySwissAlps!

The Tell Pass Winter is available for free unlimited traveling for minimum 2 consecutive days and up to 10 consecutive days in Central Switzerland and around Lake Lucerne. Have a look the validity map here: www.myswissalps.com/tellpasswinter/validity
You can get more details about the pass by clicking on the relevant tabs at the top.

From Lucerne it is relatively easy to visit Titlis, Rigi and Pilatus by train. The following links outline how to travel to each mountain:

It is possible to combine any 2 mountains in a 1 day sightseeing tour, however I would recommend allocating a day each for every mountain visit so you can take your time and enjoy the sights.

Be sure to check out these lovely cities too:

Do read this if you plan to drive in Switzerland: www.myswissalps.com/car

Regards,

Anna

You should read www.myswissalps.com/carversustrain. You will find train travel much more relaxing.

I recommend using the SBB Mobile app (bit.ly/2ICIUHi) for checking train, bus, boat and cable way timetables, finding fares* and buying tickets on-line if required. In the unlikely event you don’t have a device capable of running the app then you can use the timetable on the SBB website (bit.ly/2HH1U7B).

* The SBB website shows half-fare prices by default, the mobile app allows you to nominate whether to show full or half-fares (by editing the passenger details in settings) and is also smart enough to offer you the Saver Day Pass (www.myswissalps.com/saverdaypass) if that offers the best fare. The app can also display a platform map (at least at the larger stations) to help you make connections. You can also easily filter modes of transport (eg bus or ship).

The app (or website) will always show the fastest, most direct routes unless you tell it you want to go a longer way round by including other stations to go VIA. For example, if you wanted to follow the Golden Pass route you would need to search the SBB app looking for Luzern to Montreux via Interlaken and Zweisimmen.

If you decide to stick with a car rental the Swiss Half-fare Card can still be useful.

Based on your personal itinerary you should read “How to choose the best travel pass” (www.myswissalps.com/train/ticketspasses/practical/chooserailpass), download the handy spreadsheet calculator and do the math. The spreadsheet also includes links to the “Where it's valid" page for all available passes. Be sure to check those pages for each pass you are considering. Study the map AND read all the text on those pages to fully understand what is covered by the respective pass.
