I will be staying in Grindelwald for 2 nights in the 1st week of September (next week). I will have the 15 day Youth Swiss Travel Pass, which is good value for money, working out at CHF26 per day.
I plan to do the Rotstock Via ferrata / Klettersteig which is right next to the Eiger. I plan to start off from Kleine Scheidegg by walking towards Eigergletscher station and then continue on up the via ferrata.
Looking at the validity area for the STP, i think it offers only a 25% discount for the train from Gindelwald Grund to Kleine Scheidegg. For a return trip, it cost CHF 54, applying the 25% discount, it will be CHF 40.50 which is quite a lot of money for a short trip.
Is there a different / cheaper way for the same route ? Perhaps rent a bike and cycle ? LOL
I don't want to be tired before even starting the via ferrata.
Will be doing the First and Bachalpsee walk on the 2nd day.
