Hi,

We will be travelling with Swiss Travel Pass (Family Card)

1. Is First Cliff Walk open in November? How to get there from Interlaken OST and can I continue the journey to Jungfraujoch from First Cliff Walk without going back to the starting point? How much will it cost in total?

2. How to get to Glacier 3000 and is it open in November? Can we use the Swiss Travel Pass?

3. Is FIFA Museum included in the free museum with Swiss Pass?

4. Do we need to make reservations for trains,boats,buses in Switzerland?

5. We'll be travelling to Salzburg,Austria from Zurich. How to benefit the Swiss Travel Pass for this journey?

Thank you in advance! Much ❤

Lucas

Hi Chocoholic and welcome to MySwissAlps!

Just an FYI you will need both the Swiss Travel Pass (adults) and the Swiss Family Card (children 6-15).

  1. The Cliff walk is closed from 28. October - 25. November (https://www.jungfrau.c h/de-ch/grindelwaldfirst/fi rst-cliff-walk-by-tissot/)
    You can use the timetable to plan out the trip - prices from various towns are noted on the link under more information here. You get 25% off the cost of a ticket from Lauterbrunnen or Wengen (Interlaken to either town is free). You'll have to go back down to Grindelwald from First to continue to Jungfraujoch.
  2. The Glacier 3000 (https://www.glacier300 0.ch/en) is currently closed for skiing but is open for visits - the same should be true next November. You can use the Swiss Travel Pass to get there but not on any chair lifts / gondolas to go up the mountain. The closest town is Gstaad and then a bus to "Col-du-Pillon" Glacier 3000 from there.
    You can use the Swiss timetable here to plan a trip from whichever town you are in to Col-du-Pillon.
  3. Yes it is - click the link on our Swiss Travel Pass - details page for more information.
  4. No, only for panoramic trains such as the Glacier and Bernina Express trains.
  5. From Zurich the Swiss Travel Pass will be valid until the Austrian border (this would normally be the town of St. Margrethen or Buchs (depending on the train you take). From there you need to buy a ticket on to Salzburg which you show train conductors after you cross the border (no need to change trains).
