Hi,

First of all I would like to thank each and everyone in this forum for maintaining this page amazingly well. You guys are making the trip to Swiss to easy. Thanks a lot for doing for us. Much appreciated.

I am travelling on May end from Zurich HB to Luzerne / Luzerne - Interlaken / Interlaken - Jungfrau/ Interlaken - Geneva.

  1. Can I travel from using the Swiss Travel Pass from Zurich to Luzerne? if so is that a panoramic train? When I checked in sbb.ch the for tickets I don't see swiss travel pass option. Is that because the trip is free?
  2. I know that Train from Interlaken to Grindelwald or Wengen is free and from Grindelwald or Wengen to Jungfraujoch is 25% off with Swiss Travel Pass.I would like to go up via Grindelwald and come back via Wengen. My question is if I take an round trip ticket from Grendelwald to Jungfraujoch can I able to come back via Wengen? or I need to take separate tickets starting from Grendelwald - Jungfraujoch then Jungfraujoch - Wengen?
  3. Its quite confusion how the timings in the Jungfrau website as its not 24hr timing or AM/PM notations. So my question is what time is the first train from Grindelwald or Wengen and last train from Jungfrau to Grindelwald or Wengen. Do we have a timetable for that?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Bipin Maliakal,

Glad to hear our website has been useful so far! As for your questions:

1. The SBB website is primarily geared to Swiss residents and therefore doesn't list tourist passes such as the Swiss Travel Pass. In any case, Zurich-Lucerne is for free with your Swiss Travel Pass. Please download the validity map from myswissalps.com/swisst ravelpass/validity. It's a regular train, not a panoramic one.

2. You'd best show your Swiss Travel Pass at a manned ticket desk in Interlaken or Grindelwald and explain about the round trip you want. You'll receive a (very common) round trip ticket with the right amount of discount.

3. I think this PDF timetable answers your questions. If not, please let me know!
