Hi There,

We are a group of 3 adults and planning to stay over in Switzerland for 5 nights. 2 days in Bern and 3 days in Grindelwald. We will leave Grindelwald for Italy (Milan/Rome) on the last day.

1) Would like to know if the Swiss Travel Pass is inclusive and cover train ride from Bern/Zurich to Grindelwald?

2) Does the Swiss Travel Pass cover train ride from Grindelwald to Italy (Milan)?

Based on our ititenary, can you help to advise if is better, more worthwhile for us to get the Swiss Travel Pass or other alternate rail passes?

Thank you.

Hello Felin,

Thanks for joining MySwissAlps! Which pass is best can only be determined once you have a clear and detailed list of plans, including the trips you plan to make from Bern and Grindelwald. This decision process requires careful calculations, as explained here.

I'm not sure what you mean with the Swiss Travel Pass being inclusive. In any case, it does cover the rides Bern/Zurich to Grindelwald, as well as any other regular train ride in Switzerland. This also goes for the entire Swiss leg of your ride to Milan, up to Domodossola. Boat rides are for free too, as well as some cable cars/mountain trains (e.g. Schynige Platte in the Jungfrau region). Most other mountain tranportation is discounted by 50%. All validity details can be found here.

You may look into the Swiss Half Fare Card as an alternative. This doesn't allow ticketless traveling as with the Swiss Travel Pass.
