Which pass for Geneva to Wengen, where I'll be visiting Interlaken, Jungfrau, Grindelwald, Murren, etc. I'll then be flying out of Zurich.

Hi,I will be flying into Geneva on 9/9, will spend just one night there. I have booked a hotel in Wengen. I want to spend 9/10-9/13 visiting Interlaken, Jungfrau, Grindelwald, Murren, etc. I want to take the train to Zurich on 9/13 to catch a flight on 9/14. What is the best pass for me? I was thinking of the Swiss Rail Pass. Will that cover everything I want to see? I am traveling with two kids under 5. Do I select two family passes? Do any of the trains need to be prebooked?

    Hello Maddiha,

    I would absolutely recommend the Swiss Travel Pass for your itinerary. You can find all the information on this pass at the following link:

    https://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss...

    The Jungfraujoch requires a supplemental discounted ticket for Swiss Travel Pass holders, you can find more information here:

    https://www.raileurope.com/pass/jungf...

    Seat reservations (pre-booking) are not required within Switzerland with the exception of the scenic trains (Glacier Express, Bernina Expres) which are not on your particular itinerary. Enjoy your trip!

  • I find the info regarding the Jungfrau top of Europe a little confusing. On top of the page it says children under 4 travel for free but when I click on “terms and conditions” it says children under 6 are free. Can you please clarify?

      Hi Maddiha,

      With the 'Jungfraujoch Top of Europe', children under 6 are free. Sorry for any confusion.

      The Swiss Travel Pass will cover you as far as Wengen on the trek up to Jungfraujoch. Beyond Wengen, you would need the 'Jungfraujoch Top of Europe'.

      To get from Wengen to Jungfraujoch, you would take the Wengernalp Railway from Wengen to Kleine Scheidegg and then the Jungfrau Railway from Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch. If you wish, you can descend back down via the other route, which goes via Grindelwald. Therefore, you would take the Jungfrau Railway from Jungfraujoch to Kleine Scheidegg and then another branch of the Wengernalp Railway from Kleine Scheidegg to Grindelwald.

      For the uncovered segments from Wengen-Kleine Scheidegg, Kleine-Scheidegg-Jungfraujoch, and Jungfraujoch-Grindelwald, the Swiss Travel Pass would enable you to receive a discount of 25%. To receive this discount, you would purchase the 'JUNGFRAUJOCH/TOP OF EUROPE Grindelwald or Wengen to Jungfraujoch Swiss Travel Pass Holder' (Low season, Mid-season, or High-season depending on when you'll be taking the trip) option of a pass called the 'Jungfraujoch Top of Europe'. For this pass, click here: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/jungfraujoch-top-of-europe-8315.

      To get back to Wengen from Grindelwald, you would take the Bernese Oberland Railway from Grindelwald to Zweilütschinen and Zweilütschinen to Lauterbrunnen, and then the Wengernalp from Lauterbrunnen to Wengen. You can receive discounts on these rail lines locally by mentioning that you have the Swiss Travel Pass.
