'Anyone have experience with the Swiss Rail Pass? If I were to get a Swiss Rail Pass and travel from Bern to Munich let's say, would I be able to use the same pass to return from Munich, or do I need to pay an extra fee when I enter/leave Germany? Or if I was in Zurich and wanted to go to Salzburg using the same pass. Thanks in advance.

Looks like you can get a Swiss pass that will include Austria, or Germany, but not all three unless you get a proper Eurail pass.

And also be careful for it looks like if you get a two-country pass you limit what rail you can use in Switzerland.

And a Swiss only rail pass apparently gives you access to other transportation links and deals within Switzerland, but you lose them if you get a multi-country pass.

I would also carefully plan your routes and find out how much it costs to book the tickets in advance, then compare to the cost of the pass. Sometimes the rail passes aren't worth it.
