Best Travel pass

New Author


We will be traveling from South Africa to Switzerland in October

We will be landing in Zurich airport and staying in Zermatt for 3 days

We would like to take a train from the airport to Zermatt

Places we would like to visit is Matterhorn/Gornegrat and possibly Junfrau including interlaken en small surrounding towns

What would be the best pass

The swiss travel pass or half fare pass?



Hello @Schalkvstaden 

Thank you for your query.

The Swiss Travel Pass is valid for 3 days or more. However, it is not valid on all mountain railroads or only partially valid. The same applies to the Swiss Half Fare Card. You can also travel with Supersaver Tickets or Saver Day Passes (Attention: partly also limited or not valid at all on mountain railroads).

Here you can find the links to all offers and the area of validity maps: 

I wish you a pleasant stay within Switzerland.

Kind regards,
