Please advise recommended rail pass(es) for the following itinerary. We are a family of four ( 2 adults + 2 kids aged 7 and 5). We plan to use railways as much as possible.

1) Arrival at airport in Zurich. Spend 2 days in Zurich city sightseeing. Might plan to go to Basel or Rhine Falls from Zurich for a day trip.

2) On 3rd day we will arrive to Wengen by train where we have accommodation booking for 5 nights. We plan to explore the Grindewald, Interlaken, Lauterbrunnen, Matterhorn areas during our stay in this region.

3) After our Wengen stay , we plan to go to Paris by train. Plan is to spend the 2 days in city sightseeing. We will stay close to Lourve museum.

4) From Paris, we will go to Bordeaux by train. We will have a car rental in Bordeaux as we are together with a bunch of friends.

5) After 5 days in Bordeaux we'll take a train back to Paris as we have flight back home from Paris.

Please advise best type of rail pass/ Lyria train tickets to plan.

Thanks, Sharo

I recommend a Swiss Travel Pass (Flex version might work best) for your Swiss stay and (off topic!) point to point advance 'cheapy' TGV fares for French journeys (the French are not known for good rail pass provision...)
