Hi, my wife and I will be staying 5 nights in Murren in late August / early September this year. We were wanting to know what scenic day rail journeys are accessible from this location ?.

Also, we will be travelling to Lake Como at the end of our stay in Murren, is there a scenic rail journey we could incorporate en route to Lake Como ?.

Thank you Kelvin & Jill ( Australia )

G'day Kelvin & Jill and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

From the Jungfrau Region for a day trip you can take the scenic Golden Pass Line (www.myswissalps.com/go ldenpass) to Montreux.

On your way to Lake Como you could consider the Gotthard Panorama Express (www.myswissalps.com/go tthardpanoramaexpress) from Lucerne to Lugano.

It pays to become knowedgable about the Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable). If you haven’t used it before it will pay to read the instructions on that page before delving into the timetable. There is also an SBB smartphone app which is terrific.

Hi K & J,

No worries.

Have you considered any form of travel pass?

As well as the Swiss Travel Pass (www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass) there are many reigonal passes (www.myswissalps.com/re gionalpasses) which can work depending on where you are based and how much travel you plan. Before you can know for sure which pass suits your travel plans you need to do the sums based on the cost of all your planned trips on trains, boats, cable cars etc. You can use the Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to work out the fares for any trip. When you go to buy a ticket the fare you see on the right hand side of the page will normally be the half-fare price. Double it to get full fare. With A Swiss Travel Pass it is free provided it is shown as free on the Area of Validity map ( PDF downloadable from www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass/validity).

You should read “How to choose the best travel pass” (www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass).
