    • Lucerne-Murren Swiss Flexi Pass Day Travel

      Mürren Apr 18, 2014 at 10:04 AM

      Hi All,
      We are in Lucerne and travelling to Murren tomorrow. We will be staying there for 3 days. We have a Swiss Felx Pass for 4 days (non consecutive). We will be validating the pass tomorrow for our travel to Murren. I am aware that it takes around 3 hours to reach Murren from Lucerne. So if we were to make an early start around 8-9AM, then is there something we can visit tomorrow before/after checking in our Murren hotel. This will allow us to maximise the usage of our Swiss pass.
      Also, can you please advise what can we do in Murren for the other 2 days without using the Swiss pass ? For one of the days we have booked a Paragliding experience. We were were planning to hike the village of Gimmewald. Any other suggestions ?
      Appreciate your help.

I would arrive at Luzern through TGV at around 4 pm and I believe by the time I check-in to the hotel and get ready it would be around 6 pm. Now, I want to do the Lake Luzern cruise during the day time when there’s sunlight – and not during night time. Please let me know until what time of the day Luzern city (particulary Lake Luzern area) would have adequate sunlight (atleast normal, if not bright).

      by aodreen Online Now Dec 2, 2012 at 7:20 AM

      Hi All,

      Is anyone can help to provide some info on Stanserhorn, Titlis & Transportation Museum?

      a) Open Air Cable Car to the Stanserhorn.
      I've browsed through the website, the fares as below. May I know what is the difference between the 1st & 2nd options? Both also back to Stans. Is the 4th option including return ticket to Stans?
      1) Stans-Stanserhorn
      Adults (Swiss Pass) CHF 34.00 (return)
      2) Round trip Stans-Stanserhorn-Wirzweli-Dallenwil-Stans
      Adults (Swiss Pass) CHF 23.40
      3) Round trip Stans-Stanserhorn-Wiesenberg-Dallenwil-Stans
      Adults (Swiss Pass) CHF 25.00
      4) Good morning ticket (departure: 8.15am / 9.15am)
      Adults (Swiss Pass) CHF 29.00

      b) Titlis
      I would like to hike for 1 section from Trubsee station. Would like to confirm the correct route. Is it from Engelberg & get off Trubsee station, then I’ll need to hike up until Titlis or to Jochpass & hop in the cable car from Jochpass to Titlis? If this included into the Engelberg to Titlis route? And how long will it take to hike up until the next station to catch up the next cable car to Titlis?

      c) Transportation Museum Lucerne, is this museum covered free with Swiss Pass. I know Swiss Pass got provide free entry for museum but not sure is it applies the same for Transportation Museum Lucerne.

      Thanks a lot. Have a nice day.

      Hi All,

      As part of a short trip in Nov this year, for duration of 5-6 days I have planned to visit Interlaken, Paris and Lucerne
      My flight tickets and hotel bookings are all done

      What I am left with respect to plan is about travel between these cities

      As I ave already been to France twice, I have an idea about getting reservation and all

      But I would like to know the duration and cost (approx) for the mentioned below travel:
      - Zurich to Interlaken : Evening train
      - Interlaken to Paris: Evening train
      - Paris to Lucerne: Evening/ Early Morning train
      - Lucerne to Zurich: Evening train

      I already did alot google on this, but it doesn't seems that much helpful

      As hotel bookings are already done, I wont be very flexible in changing the travel plan

      Also, rather than booking train tickets online, I am planning to get all tickets done when I reach Zurich from station itself, as I thing they will provide me better info about travel passes and tickets all together

      Objective here is to get the cash ready with me for travel purpose separatly

      Thanks in advance for your assistance
