Sorry if this is a redundant post, but I couldn't find the answer in the forum. My wife and I will be traveling to Switzerland with our children ages 13 and 15 in October. I plan on purchasing the swiss travel pass for my wife and I. We will also get the family card for the children. Here are my questions.

1. On discounted railways or cable cars do I need to buy tickets for the children or will they travel free with our discounted ticket? For example a ticket From Wengen to Jungfraujoch

2. Are they able to travel on city buses and metro with us in Zurich and Lausanne?

3. Are they able to enter the free museums that are included on the card like the Broc Chocolate factory?

Thanks for your help

Hi Richard,

1. You don't need anything for the children.

2. Yes.

3. Yes.

You can print the Swiss Travel Pass and Swiss Family Card at home so you can travel immediately upon arrival: swisstravelpass/ price.

Enjoy your stay!
