Questions

1. Which swiss pass to take - I will only do the Lucerne to Interlaken bit of the Golden Pass. Am confused between the Half Fare card or Swiss Saver (as we will always be travelling together). Should i get the Swiss - Austria pass instead as am travelling both the countries - but the dilemma is that this pass wont include the gondolas/ trams etc ?

2. Also I would like to know which is the fastest way to get to Salzburg from Wengen.

3. On Aug 1 I understand its a public holiday - anything tht I should be aware of ?

Thanks,
Lav
