Locarno to Grindelwald

I bought a Swiss flexi pass. I'll be traveling from Locarno to Grindelwald. The fastest route is through Italy. Will the pass cover this route?

Hello Janice,

Thanks for your question.

Please note that a Swiss Pass is only valid within Switzerland, hence for your travel outside Switzerland you would have to purchase point to point tickets.

You could travel as follows:

- Locarno to Grindelwald via Lucerne and Interlaken – Eurocites train

With a Swiss 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. This discounts can only be availed locally by showing your Swiss Pass to the ticketing office in Switzerland.

With a Swiss Pass you can travel free on intercity trains within Switzerland.

Reservations are mandatory on high-speed trains, night trains, scenic trains and border crossing trains.

With a Pass the seat reservations will be offered at discounted fares (Pass holder fares).

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on "book a compulsory seat reservation when using your rail pass & feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy.

You can also refer to our travel magazine Connexion for sample itineraries.

Hope this helps.
