Will be staying in Luzern for three days in July this year.

Can some help to confirm my understanding about the best SWISS TRAVEL PASS to purchase?

Two adults and one child of 4 yrs old will be traveling and our rough itinerary is a follows:

1) Train Basel SBB to Luzern (Coming to Basel SBB from Paris via TGV)

2) Golden Pass Train (Panoramic hopefully) Luzern to Brienz then bus to Ballenberg and then back along the same route.

3) Visit to Mt Titlis including cable car.

4) Back to Basel SBB from Luzern

Based on the above I believe that I should just go without a pass or perhaps the half price pass?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi B and welcome to MySwissAlps!

To know for sure which pass is the best for your itinerary you need to read our web page here: How to choose the best rail pass. That page will show you how to find prices for your trips and then a spreadsheet to compare costs of just tickets vs. the different rail passes.


PS Your child will not need any rail pass or ticket.
