What is the Berner Oberland Pass and how does it work?

With the Bernese Oberland Pass, you can travel throughout the Bernese Oberland on public transport for 3 to 10 consecutive days. It's your perfect ticket if you plan on taking several trips in the area, because its area of validity is quite big. As you can see in this map, it reaches all the way down to Domodossola in Italy, covers parts of the Valais and even includes trains to Lucerne and Bern. 

If you're planning on catching one of the many mountain railways in the area (like Grindelwald First, Brienzer Rothorn, Tschentenalp, Harder Kulm, Männlichen, Lake Oeschinen, Niederhorn, Stockhorn or even Mount Titlis), this pass is worth its weight in gold as you get either free rides or serious discounts. Also, you can use the boats on Lake Brienz and Lake Thun for free, which both make for a beautiful trip.

You will also receive attractive discounts and benefits from around 40 bonus partners. These include attractions like Aare Gorge, the open air museum Ballenberg, the art museum in Thun, the bungy jump at Stockhorn or other outdoor activities like river rafting or jetboating. Only to name a few. 

Once you've bought your Berner Oberland Pass, just show it upon expection and you're good to get your free rides, entries and discounts.

Tips for using the Berner Oberland Pass

  • There's no need to activate your pass. Just buy it for the starting day of your choosing and you're good to go. 
  • Before you head out, I recommend you take a good look at the list of partners to see where exactly you're entitled to a discount.
  • If you like lakes, try and dedicate at least one day of your trip to visiting the beautiful lakes in the area. My favourite is Lake Oeschinen. But Blausee, Lauenensee, Lake Thun and Lake Brienz are also well worth a visit.
  • Download the SBB app on your phone to plan your trip. You'll find all train, bus, boat and mountain railway timetables in there.
  • If you get caught in a rainy day, visit the St. Beatus Caves, the World Nature Forum in Naters, the indoor ropes park in Grindelwald or several castles around Lake Thun. Or head to Kambly in Trubschachen to snack some yummy biscuits.
  • Always have your Berner Oberland Pass handy for inspection in combination with a document of identification.
