Rail Travel in Switzerland... Help!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be traveling between Lucerne, Zurich, Interlaken, and Lauterbrunnen (still figuring out in what order we will see them) in June. I have done some research but wanted to get the opinions of educated travelers about rail passes. My findings have been that it is cheaper to just pay for individual tickets rather than to get a rail pass. For travel between these places (and there may be some back-tracking involved due to a need to be in Zurich right in the middle of our travel dates :-/ ), am I generally correct?

Also, is it better (cheaper) to buy in advance or to buy at the station? I like the idea of having some flexibility, but also want to avoid the headache of having to figure it out when we get there.

Finally, is it too much to try to do all of these places in 6-7 days? Neither of us have been to Switzerland before and welcome the advice of those of you who have been to these areas!

Thanks for any help you can offer!!
