Hi,I have purchased the Swiss Pass for travelling and will be arriving from Innsbruck to Zürich. I am unsure if I have to book any ticket reservation for travelling to lauterbrunnen from Zurich.

How do I get to Lauterbrunnen from Zurich?

For cruise to Lake Brienz and Lake Thun,is the Swiss pass including that boat cruise also or am I required to purchase a separate ticket?

Thank you you for your help

Hello Kayla and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

With a Swiss Travel Pass (I assume that’s what you have) you don’t need further tickets or reservations to get from Zurich to Lauterbrunnen.

You can work out which trains to catch using the timetable at www.myswissalps.com/ti metable

The fastest route is via Bern, the more scenic via Luzern and Meiringen.

You don’t say when you are travelling but the Lake Brienz ferries are not operating for Winter. Lake Thun has a limited timetable operating. See attached.

Please login to see the attached documents

I was there last week and Lake Brienz ferries were already shut down.
