We are visiting Switzerland in June - 6 adults and 4 children (ages 7, 3.5, 2.5, and 1.5). We have bought our Swiss travel pass for 15 days. I am looking for some guidance on how we should use the pass discounts/free public transport for scenic tours, etc.. Specifically for the Golden trip to Mt. Pilatus from Lucerne - in some places it says boat, bus, train is included in the Swiss travel pass... but in some it says there is a certain price. I understand for the cable cars there is a 50% discount.
Also, can we just walk up to the station/lake etc... and get on-board without advance reservations? Since we are traveling with little ones, we want to make sure we are prepared and make advance bookings as much as possible. But at the same time, I don't want to miss out on all the free trips we can avail, as we have paid a pretty hefty amount to for the 15 day Swiss travel pass.
Looking forward to receiving your inputs. Thank you in advance!!!
