One single Sparpreis Europa Schweiz Ticket could be used for journey up to maximum 2 stopover cities (a.k.a via point cities) as long as your stay at the stopover city is less than 48 hours. For example, I have to travel from Hinterzarten, the mysterious Blackforest in Germany to Interlaken, the beautiful village in Switzerland. At the same time, I would like to have a short one night stopover at Lucerne for the ancient wooden Chapel Bridge built during 14th century. What I need to do is just buy one single ticket to cover the entire journey. The best thing is that, you can set up to 2 stopover cities, just make sure each of the stopover do not exceed 48 hours. Great saving, isn’t it? 🙂 Do purchase your Sparpreis Europa Schweiz Ticket earlier possible, as it is promotional ticket, first come first serve basis. You can buy it as early as 90 days ahead.
