Flying into CDG and will be taking TGV-Lyria to Basel on 10/10 and will return to Paris on 10/16. I've read about needing a rail ticket at the Swiss border. Can someone clarify this for me? We will be going from Basel to Lauterbrunnen.
- Does the train stop near the Swiss border and is that where you'd get a ticket to Basel?
- I can use either the STP or half-fare card to get from Basel to Lauterbrunnen, correct?
- We will be spending the majority of our time in the Berner Oberland area going to Jungfraujoch, Schilthorn, waterfalls, etc. Would it be beneficial for us to get the half-fare card or BO rail pass?
Thank you for your help. This is the most confusing part of planning this trip.
