Schilthorn & The Swiss Travel Pass (Is It Included)


Heading up to the Schilthorn and wondering if it is included in the Swiss Travel Pass.

The pass includes a lot of different mountain excursions like Mount Rigi, Stanserhorn and many others.

Is the Schilthorn covered by a Swiss Travel Pass?

Yes, the Schilthorn is partly covered by the Swiss Travel Pass. You get a significant discount of around 60% on the return trip from Stechelberg to Piz Gloria.

  • Price: CHF 42.80

Yes, this is the same price! The reason is that the Stechelberg to Murren gondola is actually free with the Swiss Travel Pass as it is considered to be “public transport”. This enables locals and visitors to get to Mürren at a far lower price than normal.

Getting To Stechelberg

If you are coming from further away than Lauterbrunnen, remember your travel on trains and buses is covered on the day you use it. So, if you are coming from

  • Interlaken
  • Bern
  • Mürren
  • Lauterbrunnen
  • or Wegen

You don’t have to pay until you get to Mürren. However, buy a ticket when you arrive at Stechelberg or online before you leave.
