Best option for cost effective train travel from Airport, via Zurich HB to Wengen

SOLVED

Hi, My wife and I are arriving early on a weekday morning at Zurich Flughafen. We have a meeting in Zurich for a couple of hours and then want to catch a train to Wengen. What is the most cost effective way of doing this using 2nd class? I have spent considerable time trying to find options via The SBB website that gives you a simple price and full details of the best way? At best it is confusing to get a price or further details?

Key points. We are both over 60 years of age but mobile. We need to travel from the airport to Zurich, have our meeting, then continue to Wengen. We want to return from Wengen to Zurich Flughafen within 3 weeks.

Can someone give us some guidance here regarding pensioner rates? 2nd class return tickets? The ability to stop in Zurich for a couple of hours and any other points? Thank you. Cheers Niall.

Thank you for your query.

As I can see from your message, you are traveling by train only on 2 days. So I recommend you to buy our Saver Day Pass. You can find all information here: https://www.sbb.ch/en/travelcards-and-tickets/tickets-for-switzerland/day-pass/saver-day-pass.html

I wish you a nice day.
