best pass for travel


We are family of 5 - 4 adults and 1 youth , just turned 26 in feb .

I ahve 2 questions- 1. For the youth as she just turned 26 can we use youth pass or it will be adult ?

2. We are going to stay for 9 days and 8 nights at lucerne. Plan to visit - interlaken , mt titlis, pilatus, lucern city , zurich , rhine waterfalls, zunfraugh ,and would like suggestions. No hiking .

I was thinking of buying swizz pass 1 for 2 for 4 days , and then for the next 4 days - should i buy lucerne area pass or another set of 4 day swiss pass? I was thinking that maybe for the last 4 days we can plan to see the local area and things in the region.

would like to know that would it be cheaper, and is there a place i can find out more about local lucern area pass.

what all can i cover in the local pass ?

and after this will be left with one more day , mostly plan to travel back to zurich airport from lucern - what is the cheapest way to do this?

One of us has to go to germany from zurich , so whats the best way for that also.?

Thank you !!!!

Your 26 year old is classed as an adult in Switzerland.

As for passes, try this site.http://www.swisstravelsystem.com/en/tickets-en/swiss-pass-en.html

It will give you a rundown on the various different passes if you are travelling by train. If you are renting a car, I would use the half fare card. Its what I and my family use when we travel Switzerland.

Hope this helps
