My wife, in-laws, son (6 years old) and I will be in Switzerland from August 2 - August 6...4 days and nights. We will arrive in Zurich at 2:30pm on August 2. We will then be traveling to Wengen where we will spend 3 nights. On the fourth day we will travel to Luzern and spend the day and night there. On August 6 we leave early in the morning to catch our flights out of Zurich.
While in the BO region, we plan on:
-Exploring Wengen and do some hiking above Wengen
-Visiting Gimmelwald, Murren, Schilthorn
-Visiting the Lauterbrunnen valley
On the fourth day we will travel to Luzern and explore the town and take a boat tour.
We then leave on the fifth day (early morning) to Zurich to fly out.
Based on our planned itinerary, would it be best to purchase the Swiss Travel Pass? We will be using trains, gondolas, lifts and boats.
If we purchased the 4 day Swiss Travel Pass and activate it in the afternoon of the first day, would the pass be good the morning of the fifth day...technically still within 96 hours? Or would our morning travel (on the fifth day) require the purchase of a separate ticket?
I know there are a lot of questions above...sorry. I've tried to work it all out on my own but some advice from seasoned pros would be really helpful.
