Switzerland- Regional trains guidance



After all your suggestions, decided to travel by local trains instead of glacier train/cogwheel trains


can you please guide me station names for each attraction in order to book a trip in app ?


especially for 1.Mt Titlis ( from Lucern)

2.Jungfrfraujoch ( from Lucern) can i take golden pall lane as it is free with Euro rail global pass?

You do not book anything in Switzerland. Tickets can never sell out.

On the day you choose which train you'd like to take and add it to the app before you board. Then you enter the train and sit wherever you want. You do not "book" anything, the Eurail pass is your ticket.

Use SBB app or to get an idea of all the connections.

1. Lucerne - Engelberg + walk to the cable car. Buy tickets there.

2. Lucerne - Interlaken Ost train and then either via Lauterbrunnen or Grindelwald. Book tickets from Interlaken Ost through or at Interlaken train station (same price).

3. Weggis does not have at train station. Bus to Küssnacht am Rigi (not included) and then train or boat to Lucerne (50% discount)

4. Cable car Weggis - Rigi and back Rigi - Vitznau cogwheel railway or the other way around (50% discount). Vitznau - Weggis : bus (not included) or boat (50% discount)

5. Lucerne - Brienz train and then boat. Everything is included, you only add the train and the boat to the app before boarding

Again please use the SBB app and Google Maps to find the nearest stop from your hotel


Thank you @thibcabe 


can you explain 3rd and 4th points ? 
so for these journeys I need to take mountain trains ?

Yes obviously as you are going to the top of the mountains

3. Bus to Küssnacht (full fare ticket) and then train to Lucerne (included) OR boat to Lucerne (50% discount). Then train to Alpnachstad (included) and mountain railway to Pilatus (50% discount)

4. You get a 50% discount for the cable car and/or mountain railways (2 ways to get to the top)


What did you mean by train to Lucerne?

you meant return journey from Mt Pilatus ?
