Hi Rakesh and welcome to MySwissAlps!

  1. The route from Interlaken Ost to Jungfraujoch is about 2 hours with changes in Lauterbrunnen and Kleine Scheidegg - you can check the train timetables here.
  2. When you say Swiss pass do you mean the Swiss Travel Pass? If so it will cover the trip to Mt. Pilatus, yes. you can see everything that is covered by the Swiss Travel Pass here.
  3. No it doesn't cover the whole trip just 50% (check the link above). The route to Mt. Titlis is explained here.
  4. See link on #2. It does cover the 3 routes you mention between your towns.

Each adult in your group will need to buy the Swiss Travel Pass. Your children are covered on the Swiss Family Card (free, and ordered at the same time as the Swiss Travel Passes).

Thanks for the quick response. few more quarry-.

1-we are entering Swiss from Geneva on 13th june and leaving from Zurich on 21st June. We are planning to buy swiss travel pass for 8 consecutive days.What you suggest shall be start our Swiss travel pass from 14th june to 21st june ( on 21st we have flight in morning from Zurich but we are staying in Lucerne. We can utilise Swiss travel pass for train to Zurich airport from Lucerne).

2- Does swiss travel pass applicable in Geneva lake boats rides also on any activity suggested in Geneva with swiss travel pass.

3- We shall be staying in Lucerne for 4 nights ( 17th june to 20th june). One day we are planning for Mt Titlis and 2nd day to Mt Pilatus Still we left with 2 days. Kindly suggest some places /villages to explore around Lucerne or Zurich for 2 days.

  1. It depends on your train trip (if any) on June 13. If you are flying into Geneva and staying there the first night then have your pass start on the 14th. You can buy the Swiss Travel Pass online here and print it at home for ease of use.
  2. Yes, you can see a map of all the routes covered by the Swiss Travel Pass here.
  3. You can see a list of our recommended activities for Luzern here and Zurich here.

Cheers!
Lucas
