We are making our first trip to Europe in mid July. We plan to stay in Colmar three nights and then travel to Grindenwald for a few nights and then to Basel.

How soon should be purchase tickets for our leg from Colmar to Grindenwald and from Grindenwald to Basel? Are there sites that are better than others to purchase the tickets?

once in Grindenwlad are there any type of beneficial passes to purchase to explore the area using public transportation?

Thanks so very much for the information!
