I was looking at Lake Brienz tickets on www.bls.ch/en/fahren/u nterwegs-mit/schiff/billette-und-abos web site and I am a bit confused about it. What is the difference between "2nd class 1/2" and "2nd class 1/1"?
1-day tickets Lakes Thun and Brienz
1st class 1/2 CHF 51.00
1st class 1/1 CHF 102.00
2nd class 1/2 CHF 35.00
2nd class 1/1 CHF 70.00
The 1/2 price is only if you already possess a Swiss half fare card. Otherwise you will pay the 1/1 price which just means full price.
and the Swiss Travel Pass? Free?
Read the link I gave you for cost and details. It costs 120 Swiss francs for 1 month.
With the Swiss Travel Pass it's all free, yes.
Oh yes sorry about that confusion. The half fare card is 120 Swiss francs but if you buy the Swiss pass your trips are free.
