Looking at purchasing a Saver Day Pass for 4 adults in July to travel from Zurich to Lauterbrunnen valley. Only have a day and hope to see the waterfalls and small towns. In reading prior threads there was a comment made that cogwheels and gondolas may incur additional costs. Is that correct and what is the cost? Hoping to hike a little and see Murren, Stechelberg, and Grindenwald. Cost of pass is 52 each.

If your travel is on a continuous (non-dotted) line on the synoptic map, you can travel with a Saver Day Pass without paying any extra.

Luckily Murren, Stechelberg, Wengen and Grindelwald are included in this (but no further up the mountains) . So I suggest you limit yourself to these lines - which will take up most of a day anyway if you want to walk a bit.

The simplest train plus walk is to go to Murren from Lauterbrunnen. This is a cable car to Grütschalp then a unique train (it has no connection to the rest of the Swiss railways) along the valley side via Winteregg to Murren. Then, walk back as far as Grütschalp and come back down the cable car.

That will take half the day so you may have limited time then to travel to Grindelwald as well

Thank you 1960man! With only a day this will be my best bet and save substantially versus the Swiss Travel Pass until we come up next time for several days. Any other advise for first timers?

Hi Michaell,

Be sure to travel via Lucerne and change to the Golden Pass line to Interlaken from there. That's much more scenic than the quicker trains via Bern, so I'd suggest to travel this route at least to or from the Jungfrau region: www.myswissalps.com/go ldenpass. It's all covered in the pass.

Should the weather be lousy you could limit your time in the Lauterbrunnen valley and spend time in Lucerne and Bern instead. Or make it a train day and do the entire Golden Pass line to Montreux.

Thank you Arno. We can’t wait and are now going to do 2 days with only 1 day in Zurich.
