My husband and I will be arriving at Lucerne from Zurich on Sept 2 we would like to travel from Lucerne on day trips to visit mountains on Sept 3 and 4 and then we have two more days Sept 5 and 6 before we board river cruise in Basel. Should we buy a train pass and if so which one? We want to visit Interlaken and need to be in Basel early on the 7 th of Sept. suggestions please! This is our first time in switzerland

Hi Cbgomez2011 and welcome to MySwissAlps!

The best rail pass for you will depend on your final itinerary.

To know which pass is the best for your specific itinerary you need to plan out all trips you will make (train, bus, boat, cable car) and compare the prices for regular tickets to the rail pass price (and which routes/mountains are free or discounted). Once you have that information you can read our page here on how to choose the best rail pass. There is a spreadsheet there to help with the math. :)

If you need help deciding on what to do in Interlaken region (Bernese Oberland region) click the link for suggestions.
