We are travelling from Zurich to Lauterbrunnen on Swiss Cards (leaving on a Wednesday morning) - is it possible on this pass, if this is our transfer day, to stop anywhere on route or do you have to catch all the trains with out overly long connections. Also if you can stop somewhere during the day where would be a good stop that would be allowed for within the transfer route? Hope this question makes some sense. Thank you for any help! This forum has been so helpful already!

Hi Ginnyf! Yes, your question makes perfect sense :-). It's allowed to get on and off board as many times as you want and as long as you like. The only requirements for the Swiss Card are that you use the most direct or the cheapest route and that you complete your journey within one day. If you travel via Bern, Spiez and Interlaken, you could consider Bern and/or Thun for stops along the way. An alternative is to travel via Lucerne and Meiringen (which is the more scenic route). Lucerne and/or Brienz would be nice for a visit along the way in that case.
