I am currently planning a trip to Switzerland this December.. the tentative plan is outlined to be:
18/12: Arrive at Zurich Airport at noon and take the train to Lucerne (which will be our base)
19/12: Travel on the Golden Pass line along section 1 Lucerne to Interlaken Ost; and Section 2: Interlaken Ost to Zweisimmen and return to Lucerne at the end of the day
20/12 Travel to section 3: Zweisimmen to Montreux and back to Lucerne
21/2 Take the train from Lucerne to Zurich central
22/2 sightseeing in Zurich city
23/2: Train from Zurich city centre to Zurich Airport
I have only listed the details of the itinerary involving any travelling via train. I'm not sure if it is normal to travel on the Golden Pass Line in sections as I have planned above.. the reason is that I am traveling with my parents who are quite old and am hoping for it to be less tiring for them if we go at a slower pace and also by just staying at Lucerne and not changing hotels every night.
I tried reading the forum but didn't find much helpful information regarding the use of tell pass on the Golden Pass train. My journey is not going to involve a lot of intercity traveling so I am reluctant to spend on the Swiss Travel Pass. I just wonder if getting a tell pass for the 2 days that we are traveling on the Golden Pass Line is appropriate?
I hope you can advice me, thank you so much! x
