Could really use Swiss train travel help

Jump to last reply

I am sure this is easier than it seems, but since I'm not finding it easy to figure out, I could REALLY use some informed help/advice from those on this forum who are knowledgeable about Swiss train travel!

I am trying to figure out whether we should buy individual train tickets, or a pass.

Our travel will be:

Day 1: Train from Venice to Milan, Italy.

Day 3: Train from Lugano to Luzern, Switzerland
Day 4: Train from Luzern to Interlaken, Switzerland in the a.m. Mountain transportation up and back down the mountains for hiking mid-mountain; cog train to the "Top of Europe" Jungfraujoch
Train from Interlaken back to Luzern in the evening.
Day 5: Train from Luzern to Zurich

I thought at first we would buy train tickets for the portion in Italy, and then a 3-day Swiss Travel Pass for the portion in Switzerland. However, when I got on the Swiss Travel Pass to see, it suggested pricing the tickets first, and the ticket price seemed to be about half of the cost of the pass; BUT I may have been pricing 2nd class tickets. We think we want to travel first class, at least on the portion from Lugano to Luzern. Depends partly on the cost.

I was also thinking it would be easier to just have the Swiss Pass and not have to figure out how to buy a bunch of tickets at the ticket kiosks or windows. Am I right that we won't need seat reservations on any of those trains, or will we?

Now someone tells me it may be even cheaper and easier overall to get a Eurail pass for the combined Italian and Swiss train travel portions. Is it?

Do we need (or is it advisable to get) seat reservations for the Jungfraujoch train? I don't want to miss our only chance to get up there -- and we are 6 people traveling together.

You help would be VERY much appreciated! Thank you!
