Here is my tentative itinerary. Been to Switzerland 4 times and to Wengen twice already. Wengen is our base of operations.
Look over my use of rail, lifts, boats etc. and advise me what is best way to purchase travel.
Do I buy round trip ticket form Zurich to Wengen and the buy the Regional 8 day pass or do I buy 6 day pass and pay for individual ticket up to Kleine Scheidegg on 26 May.
There are three of us. One is my son who is 16. The rest of us are over 50
Or do I buy swiss rail pass?
Or half fare card?
So many choices. Which is the best deal?
How do I get the most for my money ?
Some of the tickets give discount on the Jungfraujoch leg, some don’t. if you buy some tickets, you get discounted Regional pass. Some give you boat and gondola travel as part of the package. Hard to figure all out.
