This site is absolutely lovely! I've been searching so much about my upcoming trip but I can't quite decide if I should get a pass or not. Here's my itinerary:
Day 1 - Rome - Zermatt
Day 2 - Zermatt
Day 3 - Zermatt - Murren
Day 4 - visiting junfrau + hike from kl. scheidegg to wengen.
Day 5 - Murren - Strasbourg
Extensive travel is only on 4 days (Day 1, 3, 4, 5) and getting a Swiss 4 Days flexi pass seems like a no brainer. I've done some calculations between getting a Swiss 3 Days flexi and 4 days flexi and the difference is pretty minimal.
From Rome - Zermatt - swiss pass is good for a discount at the leg from milan - brig (costs 13.60CHF, if not it'd be 33CHF), after which i enjoy free travel from brig to zermatt (which costs 36CHF)
From Zermatt - Murren, full fare costs 93.60CHF, which already made the decision of getting a pass worthwhile.
From Murren to visiting Jungfrau, there are the cable/train/cogways that I'd need to get on before reaching Wengen where i take the Jungfrau train. Taking returns trip of this into account would cost 33.60CHF. Plus the Swiss flexi pass gets me a 25% discount on jungfrau train.
From murren to Strasboug Ville, travel is covered till basel (which costs 96CHF). But from basel to strasbourg ville, will this be a discounted price? I've checked sbb.com and the only option available for reduction is GA, is this the same as that of Swiss flexi?
We've kind of decided on taking the 4 days flexi pass to ease things up, would that be something you'd recommend? We're leaving next Friday, really excited about this!
