My family of 5 (including 18,17 & 14 yr kids) are planning a short trip to Lucerne in Dec. We will be coming in by train from Milan and will leave via Zurich airport.
Our primary interest in Lucerne is 2 separate day trips to Jungfrau and Mt Titlis. I understand it is not time wise to do day trip to Jungfrau from Lucerne and both trips are subject to weather. However I am only doing my cost evaluation at the moment.
Based on the 2 day trips, I estimate that it is worthwhile for us to buy the swiss half fare card (chf 110 x 4 plus chf 30 for 1 junior card) as the train fares for the following routes are half :
1) Milan to Lucerne 1 way sbb train (I am not sure if applicable)
2) Lucerne to Jungfrau roundtrip (should be Yes ?)
3) Lucerne to Mt Titlis roundtrip (not sure if applicable to the 1 day ski pass)
4) Lucerne to Zurich 1 way sbb train (should be Yes ?)
In addition, pls let me know if I can buy the swiss half fare card at Milan so as to enjoy half fare for Milan/Lucerne train leg.
Thank you so much in advance !
