Help Plz! Swiss Pass or Regional Pass?

Jump to last reply

I would love help in figuring out which train pass to purchase!

My husband and I are planning our first trip to Switzerland - plan on spending about 6 days in the Bernese Oberland area, stationed in Murren, and then another 4 days in Luzern before flying home from Zurich.

I'm stumped on purchasing either the Swiss Travel Pass or the Regional Pass Bernese Oberland. I called Byron at BETS to ask about the regional pass, but he didn't know much about it. Has anyone purchased the Regional Pass that can speak to it? Does it offer the same benefits as the Swiss Travel Pass (unlimited travel etc but within designated region, free admission to museums, free travel public transportation, 50% discount most mountain railways)?

The prices are similar:
10 day Bernese Oberland Pass is $380 US
8 days Swiss Travel Pass is $399

Any opinions, insights, recommendations or advice would be so appreciated!
