Welcome to the forum Laurie! If you plan to focus on the Jungfrau region, the 2 for 1 deal
on the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland
would be a good option. Parts of your inbound trip by train and your trip to Zurich would also be covered. An alternative is the 2 for 1 deal
on the 4 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass
. It grants 4 days of free traveling, 2 of which can be used for your inbound trip and the journey to Zurich. The two remaining ones can be used for other longer trips, e.g. boat trips on the lakes or trips to other regions if weather around Mürren is bad.
As for your son: he can use the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland too (he'll have to pay the regular fare). If he's under 26, a 4 day Swiss Youth Pass
would work too. It ultimately depends on your exact travel plans and calculations
would be required to be sure which option is cheapest.
All connections can be found through the timetable
. The earliest travel connection leaves at 06:06am from Mürren and will get him at Zurich Airport by 09:16. I guess this is too short in advance. A hotel near Zurich Airport
may be better to spend the night before his departure.
laurie33 said: My husband and I are traveling to the Berner Oberland from 27 Sept to 2 Oct. We are arriving by train from Nice on 27 Sept and departing from Zurich by plane on 2 Oct. We will be staying in Interlaken/Murren for this trip. We plan to take all of the trains/cable cars and fully explore the area up to Jungfraujoch. Question is what type of rail passes should we purchase for maximum value?
In addition, our son will be joining us on 28 Sept to 1 Oct. He will be flying R/T from Paris to Zurich to be with us. What kind of rail pass should he purchase.
Also, on his day of departure (1 Oct), our son has a 10:40 am flight out of Zurich. There is a 6:00 am train from Interlaken to Zurich that morning, but will he be able to travel from Murren to Interlaken earlier that morning to catch the 6 am train?
Thank you so much for your help!
