This blog and Kim's guide together are a tremendous help in our preparation.
My daughter is traveling through Hungary down to meet us in Zurich. Her husband waited 2 hrs to get train tkts! We got the 2nd class Swiss Transfer Ticket with 1/2 fare card. We will be starting at the Zurich airport and headed to Murren the first week. The sbb.ch site shows not many people in 1st class but crowded in 2nd class. Of course, we do not wish to wait in line for 2 hrs either but think we will need to just to have our Transfer tickets validated? …..in the beginning of July will we see that great number of people buying tickets at every stop?? We do need to have our tickets validated in Zurich, is that the only place we need to validate and then after that just get on every stop (Berne, Interlaken Ost, Lauterbrunnen to Murren BLM?). I am thinking after that, we don't need to buy any tkts til the next day if using the mtn transport to go up further the mountain.Could you clarify the process for me? If we need to expect 2 hrs waiting to get our tickets validated then we need to prepare with snacks for the children! ALso, will we be sure to be able to get on any of the trains? Do they fill up to capacity often? We will be looking to get on the 12, 12:40 or 1:13pm trains after arriving about 10:30
Thanks so much for your expert advice,EileenThanks,Eileen
