Greetings and thank you in advance for any insights. I have looked through the Forum and still am a little confused on the best rail passes to purchase for our 5 days in Switzerland. We arrive in Zurich and want to take the train to Lucerne and while there visit many of the local sights: Mt. Pilatus, Lucerne Old Town, Lake Lucerne on Steamboat ride, with stops at some of the towns where the glass factory is and perhaps the Swiss Knife factory. We may also weather permitting visit Mt. Titlisk and/or Interlaken. I've looked at Swiss Rail Pass, which seems too expensive for this restricted area. I've also looked into the Half-Fare Pass and the Tell Pass. Seems to me the Tell pass would cover a lot in the Lucerne area (transportation and discounts on certain sites) but would require us to purchase full fare tickets to/from Zurich.
Our schedule is September 25 - 30 so the Tell Pass period would cover this period
Could I please have your insights.
Thanks so much.
