Paris-Murren-Lucerne Zurich

What is the easiest and cheapest way to reach Murren from Paris? After visiting swiss rail site and doing a bit of research I have come to this conclusion:

1. 27 May Paris to Basel by TGV (I assume swiss rail pass doesn't cover this route). Then I will use 4 day flexi pass from Basel. Further travel is as follows:

2. 27 May Basel to Murren (by train and ropeway)

3. 29 May Murren to Lucerne

4. 31 May- Lucern to Zurich to catch flight home

We plan to stay 2 days at Murren then we will go to Lucerne and spent 2 days and 2 nights ther. Planning to visit a lot of places in Lucern.

Is it possible to buy flexi pass for 4 days after I arrive in Basel?

If I hav a flexi pass, do I still need reservation is train or I can hop in hop out?

It's my first trip and appears quite complicated becoz we are budget travellers.

Is it possible to buy swiss rail pass after I arrive Basel?

I want to buy 4 day swiss flixi pass. Is it possible to buy 4 day flexi pass after reaching Basel.

Yes you can buy your Pass on arrival in Basel station. Reservation is not necessary if you are not going to take the glass box Panoramic railcar. Tell the sbb agent what trips you plan to do, they are more apt to calculate the cheapest fare for you.
