My wife and I (mid 20s) are planning our Europe trip of approx. 19days. From September 21 to October 9. We would arrive at Zurich airport about 8.30pm and stay the night somewhere convenient. Before catching a train the next morning to Wengen.
I have done a bit of research and looking on sbb.ch this train would change at Spiez and a few more changes before Wengen. Trying to make sense of information I've read. Is there a need to pre book these train tickets at all? Or from what I have seen you just buy them at the station, at roughly what cost?
We have 3 nights planned in Wengen and would like to go up Jungfrau and experience snow in general as well as sight seeing the alps. There would be more trains involved and a return train to Spiez before we depart on an Italian train for Milan onto Rome
Would all this train travel be worthwhile buying a Swiss rail pass or half pass?
Also with this forum I suppose I post the other portions of our trip (Rome, Nice, Paris and London) in the relevant forum. As the forums are all country specific I can't find somewhere to help get an overview and opinions of what we have planned.
Look forward to peoples advice!
(PS I realise 4 days is not a lot in Switzerland but as it is my Wife's first trip to Europe we are trying to fit a bit in).
