Train Pass Advice needed for Austria, Germany, Switzerland, France trip

Jump to last reply

We are a middle aged couple from Australia and need your expert advice with train pass options. Our itinerary is as follows and all are booked except the Salzburg/Tirol area which is still up for discussion.

30/8 to 2/9 – Vienna
3/9 to 5/9 – Munich
6/9 to 9/9 – Salzburg/Tirol Area (not yet booked)
10/9 to 14/9 – Wengen
15/9 to 18/9 – Burgundy
19/9 to 25/9 – Paris

We are planning to drive around the Salzburg/Tirol and Burgundy countryside and so our major train travel would likely be as follows:

3/9 – Vienna to Munich
6/9 – Munich to Salzburg
10/9 – Innsbruck to Wengen
15/9 – Wengen to Basel
19/9 – Beaune to Paris

I have tried to price all the above separate journeys at full price (First Class) and came up with around AU$897 per person. In addition to these trips above we would have local Jungfrau region travel on trains, cable cars etc. and perhaps a day trip out from Paris which are not included in the estimated price.

I am thinking that the Euro Select 4 country pass might be my best option with the 5 days pass costing AU$520. (8 days - AU$659 and 10 days - AU$754)

My understanding is that this pass would also give us 25-50% discount on many of the trains/cableways in the Jungfrau region and would not use a day of travel on the cards.

Any advice on whether I am on the right track would be very much appreciated.
