Hello..

I plan to go on April 26 to May 5 to Oberland area. I try to booked regional train pass but in the web only for winter or summer season which is not including my time frame. Is there any train pass going on by my time frame? Thank you..

Hi Nanda and welcome to MySwissAlps!

You shouldn't have any issues getting the Regional Pass - Bernese Oberland. It is available as of April 21 and we have retailers here where you can buy it online.

Lucas, If I already have a eurail ticket, do I still need this Oberland ticket as well?

You might want to read this thread - Hiking in April www.myswissalps.com/fo rum/topic/hiking-alternatives-for-april-2018

The Eurail Pass only gets you 25% discount on the mountain transport south of Interlaken. But whether that means a BO Pass is necessary/useful depends on how much travel you plan.

Thank you Rockoyster..

I read all the link and wonder,, so if there is no hiking at the oberland area then what can we do? I really looking forward to visit lauterbrunnen and matterhorn. Can We do that?

The Matterhorn is at Zermatt. You might want to use the Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to figure out how long it takes to get from Lauterbrunnen to Zermatt.

You have only given us a small snapshot of your plans. When and where are you arriving and departing Switzerland. That information might help improve the advice we can provide.
