2 day Zurich trip with Rhine falls and luzern

Hello

I am planning to stay 2 days in Zurich. On day one planning to go to Rhine falls, and on day to day trip to Lucern.

I will buy a 9 o clock day pass.

My question is which station to get down from Zurich, so that its covered under the day pass and I do not have to buy any other ticket?

If I do take the day pass instead, which i think Is valid for 24 hour can I use it next morning before 9? Which station should I start on my way to lucern for the lowest fare from Zurich? Or is it same?

Thanks a lot in advance

Ansar

For details on Zurich 9 o'clock day pass see https:/…9-oclock-daypass.html - "valid Monday to Friday from 9am to 5am on the following day"

Zone maps are at https:/…zone-maps.html

Zoomable train network map is available at https://maps.trafimage.ch/ - fastest trains Zurich to Lucerne go via Thalwil. More scenic detour is via Rapperswil, Voralpen-Express direct train to Lucerne.

For timetable and ticket prices use www.sbb.ch/en - make sure to get full fare prices when comparing (not the default half fare price ticket).

Thanks a lot jm2cents.

I can see there are two ways, first to Schaffhausen, and then another train to falls which doesn't cover under 9 o clock pass. Or to Schloss Laufen am Rheinfall, via Winterthur which does cover.

If I wanted to spend some time in a town,Schaffhausen or Winterthur which will be better? Is Schaffhausen itself covered under the pass, and I will only have to pay the trip from Schaffhausen to the Falls?

To sum up, m 2 day plan is

Day one: reach Zurich, drop luggage at Airbnb( Adliswil) and go to Rhinefall via SLAR station through Winterthur. Same way back. Explore Zurich the rest of the day.

Day two: Early morning visit Lucerne, be back by 5/6 pm. Explore Zurich the rest of the day.

I am thinking 9 o clock pass for day 1( should cover the whole Rhinefall trip n back), currently 26 FR.

For day 2, will book point to point ticket to Lucerne. Hopefully will get superaver ticket.

Will it be better to get 24 hr all zone day pass instead? It's 34 fr, but I can use I on day two morning, going from adliswil ( my address) to Zurich, as it is valid for 24 hour. Will that be a good idea?
