Hi all. Thank God for this community, we almost finished on planning and reserving our first family eurail trip.
We plan to travel from Interlaken Ost to Zurich on November 15th via Luzern with the Panoramic Express (PE) 0904am. However, Railplanner, SBB and OEBB showed that there is no direct PE train to Luzern on our travel date.
The train will stop at Meiringen, and we must take replacement bus from there to Giswil, and board the train again from Giswil to Zurich. We checked on SBB website, this is due to:
“Interrupted service Giswil - Meiringen
Interrupted rail services between Giswil and Meiringen.
This is due to engineering work.”
My questions are:
Would be it be worth it to choose this PE2919, which require us to take bus half way? Do we need to make or pay another reservation for the bus? Then the PE2919 from Giswil to Luzern, do we need to make and pay another reservation?
We really want to try Panoramic Express, but we wonder if we took the PE, we won’t be relaxed to enjoy the scenic view considering that Interlaken Ost to Meiringen is only 31m, then we need to rush to take bus, and Giswil to Luzern is only 34m. Worried my son will get carsick on the bus 😅
Or, could we enjoy the same view if we take regular IC train to Luzern?
Thanks in advance!
