Welcome to myswissalps!

The forum moderators do not create itineraries, but they will offer suggestions regarding one that you put together.

Here's a link to a page that gets you started with creating an itinerary.

Maybe start at www.myswissalps.com/fo rum/topic/please-read-these-faqs-before-you-post-1

Use the timetable on the SBB website (bit.ly/2HH1U7B) or the highly-recommended SBB Mobile app (bit.ly/2ICIUHi) to plan your travel, find fares* and buy tickets if required. If you are not familiar with using the timetable it will pay to first read the instructions on this page - www.myswissalps.com/ti metable. *SBB website shows half-fare prices by default, mobile app allows you to nominate full or half-fare and is also smart enough to offer you the Saver Day Pass (www.myswissalps.com/sa verdaypass) if that offers the best fare.

You should also read “How to choose the best travel pass” (www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass), download the handy spreadsheet calculator and do the math. The spreadsheet also includes links to all the available passes.

Hi Kajvir,

Theoretically you could stay in Interlaken all the time, but some day trips will require a lot of travel time. Do check the timetable as suggested, and see what's doable for you.

For Interlaken details, please see www.myswissalps.com/in terlaken.

Thanks for the reply. If I stay in Interlaken. I cover all with day trips.

But how do I cover the zermatt with Glacier.

And swiss rail pass which i buy, is also allowed to use for Glacier train.

What is a "Zermatt with Glacier"? If you mean the Glacier Express then I'd suggest you rethink that. You don't need to take the Glacier Express to get from Interlaken to Zermatt. There are regular trains following that route.

Hello Kajvir12,

If you take the Glacier Express, the panoramic train, and you're talking about the Swiss Travel Pass, the pass will cover the journey, but NOT the mandatory seat reservation:
- www.myswissalps.com/gl acierexpress/tickets
-www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass

To find out about possible connections, both with regular trains and with the panoramic trains (labelled PE in the timetable), please use the timetable link provided by Rockoyster.

Best,
Steph
