Hi Arno & Annika, Good day!
time flies and our long waited trip will be next week! can't wait~Sorry for the long list of questions again! appreciate your expert suggestions below as we would like to fully maximize the unlimited traveling on the 3 free day that we've purchased earlier - swiss travel pass flex combi with 3 free traveling days.
Day 1) Lucerne - will be traveling on regular ticket.
Day 2) 1st day on swiss travel pass - Lucerne to Murren (our base in Jungfrau). We would like to visit the oldtown nearby as well as the 'valley of 72 waterfalls' - Trümmelbach falls. Can you please recommend which oldtown is nice visiting? Understand that we need to pay for an admission fee for Trümmelbach falls entrance. Do we entitle for any discount using half fare card or does swiss travel pass cover it? Also, would you recommend to visit Isenfluh and Sulwald as well? If not mistaken, this route is not covered in swiss travel pass. Any other places that is nice visiting that we can cover on the free traveling day, appreciate your recommendation!
Day 3) On half fare card - to Jungfraujoch from Murren and we plan to go up via Wengen and come down via Grindelwald. Is this the best route to take? Do we need to buy a separate ticket from Murren to Alps via Wengen and come down via Grindelwald? Also, can we hop on and off the train on the way to/from the alps? So we could dropby to visit Wengen, Kl. Scheidegg and Grindelwald.
Day 4) 2nd Day on swiss travel pass. Traveling from Murren to Zermatt.Visit the oldtown and Matterhorn Museum (free entrance on swiss travel pass?) Any places we can visit nearby?
Day 5) On half fare card up to Gornergrat and Klein Matterhorn. Any places we can stop by to visit?
Day 6) 3rd Day on swiss travel pass. Traveling back to Zurich. Along the way to Zurich, any places worth stopping by to visit? Chur? Any chances we can slot in the free rides to Lake Brienz or Lake Thun on Day 4? How long the return rides takes?
Thanks in advance! =)
