Swiss peaks for children

I will be travelling with my wife and 3 kids this summer to Switzerland. I will be buying a Swiss pass for me and my wife and get a family card for my kids. I understand that me and my wife will have to buy discounted tickets extra for Titlis, Jungfrau and Mattehorn. My query is whether my kids aged 5,10 and 12 respectively allowed free if they are carrying Family card and travelling along with us?

    Hi,

    With the Swiss Family Cards, your children would actually be able to travel for free on the Jungfraujoch, Mount Titlis, and Matterhorn Glacier Paradise excursions.

    As far as the 2 adults go, the Swiss Pass would cover you as far as Wengen or Grindelwald for the trek up to Jungfraujoch. With the Swiss Pass, you would still have to purchase the 'Grindelwald or Wengen-Jungfraujoch/Swiss Pass' option of the Jungfraujoch Top of Europe Pass. To purchase this pass, you would click here:

    With regard to Mount Titlis, you would still purchase the separate Mount Titlis Pass. You would purchase the Mount Titlis Pass by clicking here:
    http://www.raileurope.com/activities/.... Since you'll be traveling with the Swiss Pass, you would purchase the 'Engelberg-Mt Titlis/Swiss Pass' option of this pass. This would cover the roundtrip on the cable cars between Engelberg and Titlis.

    For the Matterhorn, you would purchase the 'Zermatt to Matterhorn Glacier Paradise Swiss Pass' option of the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise Pass. You would purchase this pass by clicking here: http://www.raileurope.com/activities/.... This would cover the roundtrip on the cable cars between Zermatt and Glacier Paradise (Klein Matterhorn).

    Since the children are free with the Swiss Family Card, you would only need to purchase each of these passes for the 2 adult passengers.
