I will be staying at Lauterbrunnen in Aug'2018 and wanting to hike the Männlichen - Kleine Scheidegg

trail but I am abit lost looking at the Swiss Pass validity map. Please assist and confirm on the below

(1) Lauterbrunnen to Wengen (round trip) = STP travel free, Half Fare Card 50%

(2) Wengen to Männlichen = STP 50%, HFC 50%

(3) Kleine Scheidegg to Wengen = STP 25%, HFC 50%

FYI - I also look at www.maennlichen.ch/en/ wengenmaennlichen-aerial-cableway.html

Hello Annie and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

You have interpreted the maps correctly.

Many people wonder why the STP discount Kleine Scheidegg to Wengen is less than HFC but that’s just the way it is.

Hi Rockoyster

Thanks for the prompt response.

Yes, trying to work out the Swiss Pass validity is really mind boggling. Wish there is a simple way to work it.

Thanks once again.

Hi Annie,

It's not really that complicated, honest. I'm sure my learned fellow Australian, Alpenrose, won't mind being quoted here . . . . .

"As explained in the legend on the map, red lines are trains, yellow lines are buses, black lines are cable cars, white lines are boats. Solid lines are free, dotted lines are discounted. Discounts are mostly 50%, but only 25% for transport where you see the number "1" inside circle (①) near the dotted line. There are a few grey lines on the map as well, which indicate transport that is not covered by the Swiss Travel Pass. Dashed red lines on the map are railway tunnels, and all are on routes that are free with the Swiss Travel Pass."
