We are traveling for 6 days in July with three kids ages 11, 13, and 15. We are traveling from Domodossola in Italy to Grimmelwald, Grimmelwald to Lucerne and Lucerne to Zurich airport the last day. My questions.
1. I believe the Swiss Travel Pass will be the best value because the kids can travel free. Is my 15 yr old free? I have read 'up to 15' so does that include 15 yr olds? I need a Swiss Family card that I request when I book the travel passes and that is free correct?
2. Is the travel from Domodossola free with the pass or 50%? I believe I read it is covered, but when I look at the map it has a dotted line which may mean just 50%. Please verify. Would the kids be free even if we are 50%?
3. The trip up and down Mt Pilatus? I have read the 'mountain train' to Pilatus is free with the travel pass. Is that the cog rail? How about the cable car in the other direction? And again, if we have to pay 50%, are the kids free of do they need to pay anything? And if they do, what would that be?
4. In Interlaken, we would like to leave luggage and go light up to Grimmelwald. Is that a manned baggage place or lockers? Would a locker fit a wheelie carry on bag?
Thank you in advance for your help!
