Good day all. I would like to just make a couple clarifications and request advice for our upcoming trip to Switzerland June 15th-20th. We are a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 teens, and have purchased our Swiss Travel Passes. We were able to take advantage of the recent special and purchased the 4+1 day for our trip. Here is how our main travel looks a this point;
1. Travel from Paris to Basel early am on June 15th. Once we arrive in Basel we plan on exploring for 2-3 hours and than purchasing tickets to Luzern at the counter and arrive in Luzern early afternoon.
2. Once in Luzern we plan on having our Swiss Travel Passes start on June 16th and will use them to explore Pilatus, Rigi and possibly Titlus We will be leaving Luzern on the morning of June 18th and plan for travel to Interlaken.
3. We will spend June 18th and 19th in Interlaken and plan on exploring Harder Kulm, Jungfraujoch and possibly Schynige Platte if time allows
4. We plan on leaving Interlaken early am on June 20th for travel to the Geneva Airport to fly out later that afternoon.
I believe that starting on June 16th our Swiss travel passes; including the family pass, will cover the majority of our travel cost. We are planning for additional cost at Titlus and Jungfraujoch for the adults. My biggest question/concerns are do we need to make any seat reservations for the above routes/plans or will we be safe to simply show up at the rail stations and board with our Swiss Travel passes and passports in hand? Does the above plan sound appropriate and good use of our time and money utilizing our Swiss Travel Passes??
Thank you for any advice and help :)
