Train from Belgium to Paris to Switzerland

Jump to last reply

We are flying into Brussels, spending a few days in Belgium with friends, then taking the train to Paris for about 4 days, then the rest of our 2 weeks will be spent in Switzerland, largely in Bernese Oberland and around Luzern. Does anybody have a good sense as to whether it makes more sense to get a Eurail pass and pay slightly higher fees in Switzerland, or pay a one-way to Paris, then to Bern and then have a SwissRail pass. I believe that both SwissRail and Eurail provide discounts on the private trains and trams in the BO, but am not totally clear on all of this. Any insight is helpful.

Thanks
