I managed to sort out the timetable for the trains in September. Thanks !
Currently, I'm trying to determine which pass (if any) is best for my trip and working the single trips to determine the costs.
1. On the excel s/s on this website, for the Jungfraujoch trip, I noticed this was stated: Wengen - Jungfraujoch - Grindelwald (single). I'm wondering why it is stated as such?...I checked the time table on SBB the journey goes from Wengen to Kleine Scheidegg and then to Grindelwald then to Kleine Scheidegg before it goes to Jungfraujoch. Wouldn't this be double the journey (takes over 2hrs)? Or is this working the return leg also? I have followed this to determine the cost of fare (pls refer below)
Or should I select the Wengen to Klein Scheidegg (single) to determine the cost and then another leg from Klein Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch (return) and then from Klein Scheidegg to Grindelwald (single).
2. Would you please confirm the journey from Zermatt to Zurich is covered under the Swiss Travel Pass? I checked on SBB and the first and fastest train is via Bern, and looking at the Swiss Travel Pass validity, I noticed the section from Visp to Bern is dotted red lines, so does this mean there's no discount?
3. So far after inputting all the single fares onto the s/s, it appears I may be better off getting the point-to-point ticket. Below is my calculations using the excel s/s:
Full price w no discount!
Day 1 - Basel to Interlaken OST (single) 30.50
Day 2 - Interlaken Ost - Wengen (single) 14.40
Day 2 - Wengen - Jungfraujoch - Grindelwald (single) 110.00
Day 2 - Grindelwald - Interlaken Ost (single) 11.40
Day 3 - Interlaken Ost - Zermatt (single) 41.50
Day 4 - Zermatt to Gornergrat (Matterhorn) (return) 94.00
Day 5 - Zermatt to Zurich HB (single) 63.00
Day 6 - Zurich HB to Zurich Airport (single) 6.80
Total Cost: CHF 371.60
Does the above appear correct?
4. If I then use the Swiss Travel Pass, it will cost me CHF259 plus the additional costs below:
Day 1 - Basel to Interlaken OST (single) 30.50 0% 30.50
Day 2 - Interlaken Ost - Wengen (single) 14.40 100% 0.00
Day 2 - Wengen - Jungfraujoch - Grindelwald (single) 110.00 25% 82.50
Day 2 - Grindelwald - Interlaken Ost (single) 11.40 100% 0.00
Day 3 - Interlaken Ost - Zermatt (single) 41.50 100% 0.00
Day 4 - Zermatt to Gornergrat (Matterhorn) (return) 94.00 50% 47.00
Day 5 - Zermatt to Zurich HB 63.00 100% 0.00
Day 6 - Zurich HB to Zurich Airport 6.80 0% 6.80
Total cost: CHF425.80
Please let me know if anything above doesn't appear right, as I thought for sure getting the Swiss Travel Pass was the way to go.
I think I'm almost there with my planning and things are beginning to fall into place (clarity also). Thank you so much again for everyone on this Forum who have assisted. Truly grateful :)
