I will be travelling to Switzerland for 4 days. We will fly from London to Zurich. From Zurich we will heading straight to Lucerne and spend the 2 days there. On the 3rd day, we will head to Lauterbrunnen and spend another 2 days there. On the 5th day, from Lauterbrunnen we we will head to Zurich airport to fly back to London. We are a group of 3 adults. We prefer light sightseeing and museums but we do not do hiking. Could anyone help us with the right Rail Passes?

Thank you.

Welcome to MySwissAlps, Kim!

It's quite likely that a Swiss Half Fare Card turns out to be the best option for your stay. It doesn't include museum entrance though. A Swiss travel Pass does, so a 4 day Swiss Travel Pass might be an alternative. Depending on your plans, you could use it for day 2-5, buying regular full fare tickets for the rather short ride from Zurich to Lucerne on day 1. If you want to make sure which option is more economical, you should do the math as explained here.
