We are a couple of Australians who will be in Salzburg for two days and have booked a rail ticket for the 28th Oct that is not refundable to Thun via Munich, Zurich and Bern for Euro138 for both of us (1st class).
It has now been suggested to us that we travel from Salzburg to St Moritz via Landeck and overnight in St Moritz and the next day travel to Thun via Andermatt.
We were wondering if the suggestion should be considered and we waste the existing ticket. I tried to look at fares from Salzburg on 28th October to St Moritz on the sbb website but it was saying it was too close to travel date to quote price?
We have lots of time to stay in Thun so don't know if St Moritz is something worth seeing from Thun later during our stay.
If the St Moritz overnight trip is best done on the way to Thun any suggestions of hotels in St Moritz that are close to station.
Any suggestions or help with trips from Thun as day or overnight would be appreciated.
I've taken that trip, train Salzburg to Landeck-Zams, then bus connections to Scuol, then train to Punt Muragl (just outside St. Moritz). It's pretty, but especially this late in October, I'd just go to Thun with the ticket you have. The price is excellent, especially for first class. It will be a long trip, but traveling 1st Class will make it a bit easier to take.
Enjoy your trip!
We stayed in St Moritz on an organised tour, and while it is pretty, I think you will find the other places you are travelling through are beautiful too. Salzburg is one of my very favorite places in Europe, I think you will like it too. It is compact enough to get around easily and the centre of the old town is pedestrian zoned.
Just as my opinion, I wouldn,t forfeit the other destinations for St Moritz.
