Zürich to Innsbruck to Salzburg to Vienna: any age 60+ train and/ sights discounts?

We’re spending one week in Switzerland and then travelling to Austria.
These cities and environs are on our itinerary.
Any transportation or things to do recommendations?
Thank you!

Don't buy an Eurail or Interrail pass, it is a rip off.
If you book individual tickets well in advance you can get very cheap bargain train tickets.

Zuerich to Innsbruck - 19 Euro at www.oebb.at
Innsbruck to Salzburg - 19 Euro at www.oebb.at
Salzburg to Vienna - 19 Euro at www.oebb.at (or 20 Euro at www.westbahn.at)
Total Cost - 57 Euro

Eurail Pass for Seniors covering Switzerland and Austria - 195 Euro

You can see why no one buys Eurail passes anymore.

Senior discounts are offered by the Westbahn train company mentioned above on the Salzburg to Vienna route, but the advance OeBB fare is still one Euro less. The 19 Euro fares mentioned above need to be purchased online in advance and are for a specific train. Because these are so discounted, there are no additional senior discounts.

This is great information. Thanks for the links too. We’re buying a Swiss pass for a week in Zurich and then we’ll buy these individual ones! Very helpful!
