Switzerland - Austria train questions?

Jump to last reply

Hi, we are starting to plan a trip to Austria and Switzerland and have some questions on the various train passes as this information seems quite confusing. We are planning to fly into Vienna and out of either Zurich or Geneva. Although our plans may change, at the moment we are looking at 3 days in Vienna, 3 days in Salzburg, 3 days in Innsbruck with a daytrip to the Neuschwanstein Castle, and then 4 to 5 days in the Lauterbrunnen Valley where we would want to take the train to the Jungfrajoch.

Would our best bet be to buy a two country Eurail Pass along with a 4 day regional pass for the Bernese Oberland region? I thought this might be the best option as it offers a 50% discount on the Jungfraujoch and the Schilthorn. Or would one of the other Swiss passes be cheaper and then just do a point to point ticket for Vienna to Salzburg to Innsbruck?

Any advice would be much appreciated. If there is one pass that could cover all of our travels I suppose that would be preferrable. These Swiss Pass options are very confusing and the fact that we will be coming from Austria only further complicates all of this.

Many thanks in advance for any help.
