We are going from Domodossola to Lauterbrunnen one day. Staying 4 days in Lauterbrunnen to hike and then leaving Switzerland via Basel. Would we be able to use the Swiss Transfer Ticket with this itinery?

Hello cinamocat and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

You can use the Swiss Transfer Ticket but I think you will find point-to-point tickets cost slighty less.

You can use the Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to work out the fares for any trip. When you go to buy a ticket the fare you see on the right hand side of the page will normally be the half-fare price. Double it to get full fare.

Between Domodossola I would suggest you go via Kandersteg. It will take a little bit longer than the fastest route but you will get to travel on the Regio-Express Lötschberger train Brig to Spiez over the traditional, more than 100 year old mountain route, giving you a wonderful view along the impressive peaks and down into the Rhone Valley.

Depends what you plan to do in Lauterbrunnen apart from hiking. You will no doubt be taking the occasional train or cable car. Some other form of pass may be more effective. When are you travelling?

You should read “How to choose the best travel pass” (www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass).

Happy hiking.

That should be good hiking weather then. That's why I asked. 😎
