We will be staying in Mürren for a few days at the end of June 2018, and I'd like some information about the various rail and cable car modes of transport to and from the Village. Specifically, I'd like to know what is covered by or discounted with the Swiss Travel Pass. Also whether booking things like the Shilthornbahn cable car or the Allmendhubelbahn funicular in advance is recommended or whether, as I'd much prefer based on local weather, it's practical to get tickets as you need them and as local conditions are assessed.
Lastly, is there any Swiss Travel Pass discount on the BLM (Lauterbrunnen to Grütschalp cable car and/or Grütschalp to Mürren railway)?
We'll probably be using these modes of transport multiple times, so information about them would be most useful. For instance, I understand that as of January 2018, the Schilthornbahn cable car is 100% covered by the Swiss Travel Pass. Would we still need to get a separate ticket to board? Would we be able to board pretty much "at will," or would the cable cars be in such demand that paid reservations are needed? Any helpful info will be greatly appreciated.
