Ok so planning my trip, going to Switzerland in May.
First wondering if it is true that rail pass prices are going up in January so I should try and buy before then?
Not sure if I should get a pass, I'm doing the following journeys:
Zurich airport - Lauterbrunnen (5 nights)
Lauterbrunnen - Basel
And also planning to take cable cars, travling to murren, gimelwald, ect.. from Lauterbrunnen and maybe a day trip to a lake (still researching)
Should I get a pass? I do qualify for the youth pass
I am concerned about reservations. Do I need reservations for these routes? Also how do I know what seats on the train are not reserved?
I have also read that many of the trains past interlaken are private I think i read in Rick's book that rail passes can not be used, such as the interlaken to lauterbrunnen route, can anyone confirm this?
Thank you everyone for your help in planning my trip!
