My family (husband, 2 adult children ages 29 and 24 and myself) will arrive in Zurich on the morning of 9 September. We plan to spend the day exploring Zurich, then traveling south via rail to Interlaken late in the day. While in the Interlaken area, we plan to ride the Jungfraujoch train to the top. We will spend 2 nights at Interlaken, and travel further south to Zermatt on 11 September. On 13 September, we would like to travel via the Glacier Express, and other trains to Salzburg. Would we exit the Glacier Express at Chur? From Salzburg, we plan to rent a car and drive on to Munich.
I have researched the various passes extensively, and have only confused myself! I have looked at the half-fare card, the Swiss-Austria pass and the 4 day Flexi-saver pass. Note one of our travelers would qualify for a youth pass. I would greatly appreciate any thoughts on what may be the best rail pass for our trip.
Wonderful, helpful forum. Thank you!
