Hi Anushka,

If you have a Regional Pass Bernese Oberland that is valid until 31st Oct, you can use it until 5am the next day.

As you will be staying in Wilderswil for the duration of your visit and you plan only to explore this region, the Regional Pass Bernese Oberland is certainly the best rail pass. However it will not fully cover your journey from and to Zurich on your first and last day respectively. You will have to pay a portion of the journey that is not covered by the Regional Pass. In this case, it may be best to get point-to-point tickets.

I hope this helps!

Regards,

Anna

Hi Anushka,

Sure! You'll find all details here: www.myswissalps.com/sw isshalffarecard

Whether that's a better choice than the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland depends on all of your trips combined. You can do the math as explained here: www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass.

Hi Anushka,

Buying two passes is sometimes worth it, but not for only one trip to the Pilatus. You would spend much more on the Swiss Half Fare Card (about CHF 120) than what you would save (about CHF 40). Please see my last link and follow the instructions there if you want to be 100% sure of the best pass to buy.

Hi Anushka,

You'll find all the details here:

The Tell-Pass Winter only works from November 1, so in your case you need the Tell-Pass Summer.
