Hello Imamsub123, thanks for joining MySwissAlps!

Great that you get to visit Switzerland next summer. I think most of your itinerary looks fine. Please find some thoughts below:

As for a rail pass: your side trip to Paris complicates things a bit. If you'd be able to plan your trip to Paris after your stay in Switzerland, rather than in between the days in Switzerland, the choice would be obvious. You'd then have about 7-8 continuous days in Switzerland if I'm correct, for which the 8 day Swiss Travel Pass would be a great fit: www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass. If you stick to your current scheme, you'd best look into a Swiss Travel Pass Flex instead. It allows you to choose your own travel dates, and thus plan non-free travel days for Paris in between: www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpassflex. In any case, you'll need additional tickets for the trip to Paris: www.myswissalps.com/tr aintickets/france.

All information on the Jungfrau Travel Pass can be found at www.myswissalps.com/ju ngfrautravelpass. I don't think this is your best choice though, as you'll be traveling throughout the country.

This page explains how to find the pass that's most economical for your plans: www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass.
