Using public transport is something that we as a tourism organization also support. However, public transport connections are not ideal everywhere, especially at weekends. Our tip: park your car at one of the 600 or so SBB P+Rail stations and hop on the train to the Pizolbahnen. With the promo code pizol50, you can benefit from a 50 percent discount on the parking fee at the weekend.
