Local guest cards in Wengen hotels

I believe generally you can guest cards when you check into a hotel in Switzerland which offers free transport in the area. Do all hotels in Wengen offer this card and what are the limits of the free transport in the area.

Thank you. I did email the tourist office and they replied that the guest card in Wengen only covers discounts for swimming pool, crazy golf and tennis - does not give any free passes to transport.

We booked the Beausite Park Hotel and they offered a 6 day Eiger, Monch & Jungfrau-Pass.

The pass is actually called "Jungfrau Railways Pass" which is for 6 days of unlimited travel on railway, cableways, ships and buses within the valid area of the Jungfrau region. If you google "Jungfrau Railways Pass" you will see the extent of the region covered. Not sure whether the Bernese Oberland Pass covers a wider region - you might want to find out before deciding.

When you say the pass was "offered" by the hotel, was it offered for purchase, or free to the hotel guests? If it was free, that sounds too good to be true. It must be included in their room rate, as it would be a rather expensive pass to give out for free.

Not necessarily.

In Basel the public transport is included in the hotel price. For sure they add it to the hotel room. BUT: As all hotels together have a agreement with the public transport company for thousands and thousands of passes, they get them much cheaper, especially after the government has organised the deal. This way it is probably only 3 Francs on discount per day, instead of a normal day pass, which costs three times more.

The pass was 'free' in the sense that the hotel gives the pass to customers without additional cost other than the room charge. I believe this 'free' pass is given during the promotional (less popular?) period in Wengen. Undoubtedly, the hotel would have costed the transport charges in their calculations.
