This is my travel plans for Switzerland:
Day 1 Paris--> Gimmelwald and stay in Gimmelwald Pension
Day 2 Gimmelwald Hiking to Schilthorn
Day 3 Gimmelwald day trip to Jungfrau (return to Gimmelwald for sleep)
Day 4 More Gimmelwald hiking
Day 5 Leave Gimmelwald to Venice
I will travel with a europass and have just been informed that the europass will not cover the trains beyond Interluken. Given this information plus my itinerary, are there any additional passes I should buy?
I think at this point, when I arrive into Paris, I should just purchase the major trains (to Gimmelwald and Jungfrau) at the Paris station using my europass's discount for the part that is not covered by europass. In other words, no purchases over the internet while I am stay in the US.
Is the above the right thinking?
But I do realize that I need to purchase the BeoAdo for 59CHF (at the Lauterbranne station) for unlimited cable/local train/bus ride since I will be needing the cable to go to/leave Gimmewald as well as to Jungfrau. Or should I use the pay as you go b/c the cost will not add up for 59 CHF?
