Hello Murali,

Thanks for the question.

As per your Itinerary it is best to purchase Swiss Travel Pass.

To purchase Swiss Travel Pass click "Here".

With a Swiss Travel Pass you will avail passholder fares from Interlaken/Zurich/Bern/Lausanne to Paris only on direct TGV Lyria train for which you will need to purchase seat reservations with a Pass.

The route to Mt Pilatus is as follows:

Your travel will be as follows: Zurich - Lucerne - Kriens - Mount Pilatus.

Zurich - Lucerne: Regional Train, can travel with the Pass.

Lucerne - Kriens : Bus, has to be booked locally.

Kriens - Mount Pilatus : Mountain Train, tickets have to be booked locally.

You can also travel as follows : Zurich - Lucerne - Alpnachstad - Mount Pilatus.

Zurich - Lucerne : Regional Train, can travel with the Pass.

Lucerne - Alpnachstad : Regional train, can travel with the Pass.

Alpnachstad - Mount Pilatus : Mountain Train, tickets have to be booked locally.

The route to Jungfraujoch is as follows:

Interlaken – Grindelwald/ Lauterbrunnen – Jungfraujoch.

Interlaken – Grindelwald/ Lauterbrunnen : Free with the Swiss Pass

Grindelwald/ Lauterbrunnen– Jungfraujoch : Mountain Train/Cable Car ride, has to be booked locally. You will get a discount with the Swiss Travel Pass.

Swiss Travel Pass Details –

Children below 16 years are free if accompanied by at least one parent having a Swiss Pass. We issue a Swiss family card for children.

With a Swiss Travel Pass you can travel free within Switzerland on the STS (Swiss Travel System) network on trains, buses and boats. Also with a Swiss Pass you would get discounts on mountain excursions within Switzerland. These discounts can only be availed locally by showing your Swiss Pass to the ticketing office in Switzerland.

With a Swiss Travel Pass you can travel free on intercity trains within Switzerland. You will require compulsory seat reservations on Scenic trains.

Hope this helps!!

Best Regards,

Leora, Rail Europe Travel Expert.
