We are a family of 4( including 2 senior citizens) and are travelling to Interlaken from 21st to 23rd june and Lucerne from 23rd to 25th June. We all have a 4 day swiss pass each.

In each of the 2 cities we would like to spend one day exploring the city and the other day in making sightseeing trips such as Glacier express, Jungfrau, Glacier 300, Bernini etc.

So here are my specific question:

1. Given our short time which of these sightseeing destinations should we prioritize? based on the must see lists.

2. How do we go about making the advanced reservations. Will on the spot tickets be available given that we have swizz pass. If not where ( which site??) and how much in advance should we reserve.

3. I am a student over 25 years of age. Will I be eligible for any student discounts.

Look forward to hear back on my queries.

Hi Charu335 and welcome to MySwissAlps!

  1. I'm not sure how far you want to travel each day. So I'll give you some suggestions on mountains near each town you are going to.

  2. Do note it is a Swiss Travel Pass (swizz isn't a word). :)
    Tickets to the mountains can be bought on the spot yes. Each mountain we list on the above links has an online purchase option as well.
    Some mountains are covered fully by the Swiss Travel Pass and others are not. Look here for details: https://www.myswissalp validity
  3. Under 26 year old qualify for the Youth rate on the Swiss Travel Pass: https://www.myswissalp price
