Swiss Pass - 8 or 15 Day?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are travelling to Switzerland and our itinerary is as follows:

Day 1 - arrive Zurich early morning, take train to Lucern - will be discovering sights within the town of Lucern
Day 2&3 - Lucern - day trips from Lucern, Mt. Pilatus, Bern, etc.
Day 4,5 & 6 - travel to Montreux - trips to Chateaux de Chilion, Fribourg, Lausanne, Chocolate Train to Gruyere to name a few
Day 7,8,9,10 - travel to Lauterbrunnen - trips to Jungfrau, Wengen, Murren, Grindewald, Grimmelwald, hiking, etc.
Day 11 & 12 - travel to Zurich - do sights around Zurich, museums, etc. Possible trip to Appenzell, Basel, etc.
Day 13 we will either stay in Lugano or do another night in Zurich and then from either Zurich or Lugano we are taking the train to Venice.

Our itinerary is set as the hotels are booked and it may seem strange to start and end in Zurich, but it seemed more time efficient since we werent doing the Glacier or the Bernina Express this trip.

I haven't crunched the numbers yet, but I am pretty sure that we will benefit from the Swiss Pass, however I don't believe the 8 day will work and I think the 15 day will be too much. Also wondering the Swiss Pass will work if we decide to stay in Zurich another night and leave from there and go straight to Venice as the Pass would only cover us for travel in Switzerland. The schedule shows the train going straight to Milan. Would we have to book Zurich to Lugano and then Lugano to Venice?

Any suggestions from the seasoned Swiss travelers on what may be the best Pass to buy - Consecutive vs Flex, 8 day vs 15 day.
Thanks - Jodej
