So many rail pass options to choose from, I'm not sure what will work out best. If anyone can offer suggestions, it would be appreciated.
So here's what my plans are:
TGV Lyria Paris-Bern June 14th. Already bought this ticket.
Train Bern-Interlaken the night of June 14. Hotel in Interlaken.
June 15, train Interlaken-Lauterbrunnen-Wengen. Hike to Kleine Scheidegg. Train Kleine Scheidegg-Jungfraujoch. Train Jungfraujoch-Grindelwald-Interlaken. Hotel in Interlaken.
June 16, train Interlaken-Luzern-Engelberg. Train Engelberg-Luzern-Zurich. Hotel in Zurich.
June 17, train Zurich-Munich.
Its not clear to me what the Eurail Select 2 country pass will cover in the Interlaken to Engelberg to Zurich days. It seems right now that the Swiss Half Fare Card may work out best, although purchasing separate tickets isnt all that appealing. Not sure which pass offers discounts on what cablecars/lifts up the mountains either. Originally the 3 day Swiss Travel Pass looked like the best option, but that doesn't cover the Zurich-Munich trip, correct? Though the Half Fare Card doesn't either.
I thought I was good at this stuff until Swiss rail happened lol.
