My husband and I are traveling from Zurich to Luzern to Interlaken on non consecutive days. After a 5 day hiking trip in Berner Oberland area, we travel from Lenk to Lausanne and on to Geneva. Is it more economical to buy a train pass or individual tickets for this travel over a 2 week period. Also, what highlights should we see in each city? Thanks.
Hi nbal4277 and welcome to MySwissAlps!
I'd probably look at a Swiss Half Fare Card (valid 30 days) as you can use it for 50% off trains and cable cars, which you may be using regularly on your hiking days? https://www.myswissalp s.com/swisshalffarecar d
To know which rail pass is the best for your specific itinerary you need to plan out all trips you will make (train, bus, boat, cable car) and compare the prices for regular tickets to the rail pass price (and which routes/mountains are free or discounted). Once you have that information you can read our page here on how to choose the best rail pass. There is a spreadsheet there to help with the math. :) https://www.myswissalp s.com/train/ticketspas ses/practical/choosera ilpass
