I have been studying the Swiss rail site, and also the related posts here. It seems that each of our trips has distinct quirks, so the advice so expertly offered still leaves a few questions.
We will be in Switzerland Nov-Dec, 2019. I am a senior. We will be using trains:
Nov 28 train Zurich to Basel [base city] one way
Nov 29 explore Basel - want to stay in the city all day to explore [and to adjust to jet-lag] NO TRAINS
Nov 30 train to Luzern or Engleburg [weather dictates trip to Mt. Titlus] & return
Dec 1 train to Bern and return
Dec 2 train to Strasburg - one way
My variables are that the trip in is two different months, and we are traveling outside Switzerland on the last day.
How do these variables affect the value of the Rail Passes offered?
I'm learning towards the four-day SWISS TRAVEL PASS, as I interpret this pass to cover ALL trains, buses, boats, many museums, and some mountain lifts [Rigi.]
BUT, I'm confused if I gain value on the trip to Strasburg; if not, then the 3-day Swiss Travel Pass would be best?
Thanks so much for all of our veteran Swiss travelers [and residents] who have been so helpful over the years.
