Train travel So Confussed

Jump to last reply

For the life of me, I just can not seem to wrap my head around the best option for our up coming trip to Europe in May 2014.

I have looked at the SBB & the BAHN web site until I am blind. I have looked at the man in seat 69.
I am trying to determine what is more cost efficient, a pass of some sort, pre booked tickets or just getting the tickets as we go.

Would appreciate any & all input.

My husband & I are planing a 40th anniversary trip from May 13-30, 2014.
This is the itinery at this point:
Fly out from Canada May 13 & arrive in Zurich May 14.
Spend the rest of that day & next in Zurich.
May 16 train to Lauterbrunnen and spend 3 nights
May 19 train to Zermatt and spend 2 nights
May 21 train to Lausanne spend 2 nights
May 23 train to Basel for one night
May 24 train to Bacarach for 2 nights
May 26 train to Haarlem.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Ruth
