My wife and I are planning travel to Switzerland and Austria this July. We arrive in Switzerland and spend about a week traveling from the airport to the Jungfrau region (5 nights), then to Aescher Inn (1 night). From there, we wanted to travel to Innsbruck, Austria (2 nights) then to Salzburg, Austria (2 nights). Finally, depart Salzburg for Lucerne, Switzerland for a few nights before we depart Zurich back to the US.
Question about Trains:
I'm unsure how to plan the train trips for these two countries. I've researched the Swiss Travel Pass and understand how that works in Switzerland and the discounts for the Jungfrau Region, but I know very little about trains in Austria, how I'd get from Switzerland to Innsbruck, etc. I'm ultimately spending 9 days in Switzerland and 5 in Austria, so I'm not sure what the best train pass would be. If I buy the Eurail pass that covers both countries, does it work in Switzerland just like the Swiss Travel Pass? Are the discounts in Jungfrau the same?
Thanks for any advice!
