Group Travel

New Author


We are a group of 15 Travelers that will be arriving from Paris to stay in Alpnach for a week. Our group has the following questions and hoping someone can answer them. 

  1. Is there an option for our group to purchase group tickets and get a discount? 
  2. Does each traveler need to have the Swiss Half fare card when purchasing the group tickets? 
  3. For a group of our size, is it recommended to get Swiss Pass or Half fare? We intend to visit the following places Lucerne, Mt.Titlis, Junfrough, Interlaken, and also take the Bernina Express from Chur. 
  4. Is it possible to catch the Bernina Express if we leave Alpnach with the first train in the morning? 
  5. We are not planning on renting a car, Is there Uber or Taxi service available in alpnach? 

Hello @pavantip , 

Yes, as a group you have a group discount, and you can buy your group tickets under the following link:Group tickets | SBB

You can buy the half-fare before our after you buy the group tickets because you will not get an additional discount on the group tickets with the Swiss Half Fare Card.

I recommend for you the Swiss Travel Pass Swiss Travel Pass – the All-in-one-Ticket for Switzerland | SBB

You find under this to links informations to the timetable of Bernina Express: Bernina Express | SBB and  Bernina Express - Rhätische Bahn RhB

They have taxis in Alpach for example: alpnach taxis - Google Suche

Kind Regards from Melanie
