planning my february 2016 trip to swiss.
this is itinerary that is planned and hostels been booked so this would be the plan
question is, which of the rail pass is best...
im considering getting the half fare pass ($120 CHF) as i wont be doing much train rides, would it be best as far as price to get the pass... or the swiss pass 3 day flex (250 CHF)
Day 1 - late morning, arriving in zurich
day 2 - zurich
day 3 - train from zurich to lucerne, day trip...... lucerne to interlaken
day 4 - interlaken
day 5 - interlaken to lauternbrunnen
day 7,8 - day trips to grindelwald-jungfrajoch on one day; next day gimmelwald-murren-schilthorn
day 9-lauternbrunnen-interlaken -bern
day 10 - bern
day 11- bern-zurich airport
base on this itinerary... and calcuations of all fares, is swiss rail pass 3 day flex a good option or the half fare, or both
my 3 day train days are days 3,9,11
swiss flex 3 = $250 CHF ???
swiss flex 3 + half fare is about = 315 CHF ????
half fare + rail cost is about = approx same as above (based on fare cost done on sbb.ch)
which is best.. too many different rail passes to consider
