What a fantastic site this is! I will be spending hours reading all the useful tips before our holiday in August. We are returning to the Bernese Oberland 20 years after our last visit and we are taking our 2 sons aged 17 and 19 (yes, they do still want to come with Mum and Dad - they chose Switzerland!).
My first query (I am sure there will be many more before we leave) is about the rail passes.
We will arrive at Zurich Airport on 7.8.10 and return a week later. We want to travel by train to Grindelwald. Then we would like to use lots of the cablecars, trains etc in the region including the boat trips.
Which rail pass would you recommend? Do we order it online before we leave? Do you think there will be any reductions for the boys - 1 in 6th form, 1 at uni?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
