I'm in need of a huge help. I'm a medical student currently studying in Moscow. I've booked for a short vacation to Switzerland in 2 weeks time and I am having a huge difficulty deciding between the "Swiss Youth Pass" and the "Half Fare Card". I spent an entire day checking the prices according to a rough itinerary but failed miserably, due to the unclear fares ( for both cable cars & train rides) in the Bernese Alps. The following is my rough travel plan:
a) Geneva-Lausanne ( i noticed it cheaper traveling from the town instead of a direct train from the airport; as i have no interest in exploring Geneva, I'm in a dilemma )
b) Lausanne-Interlaken-Lauterbrunnen ( 2full days in the Alps, including Jungfrau, Murren, Wengen, Mannlichen, Grindelwald)
c) Interlaken - Luzern ( Mount Pilatus ) ; 2days in Luzern
d) Luzern- Zurich ( 2 full days)
One last question is: Would u personally from experience and prefrence, advice Schiltorn or Jungfraujoch, as i could only choose either from?
Please do advice, this would be my first trip to Switzerland. I would appreciate it very much. Thank you in advance.
