1. From Amsterdam you'd be arriving in Basel.
2. & 3. The timetable
helps to plan trips and see what's doable.
4. If you prefer unlimited traveling in Switzerland, without buying tickets, a 3-day Swiss Flexi Pass
is the cheapest option. A Swiss Half Fare Card
will probably be the cheapest option if you make the calculations
. The tickets from Amsterdam to Basel and Geneva to Paris should be booked in advance. I would advice to do so as soon as possible as your travel date is approaching. As you live in India, you can get the tickets here
I would assume the option above to be the best one. There is no pass that covers The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and France. A Eurail Select Pass
would cover The Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland, and another option is the France-Switzerland Pass
You're timeframe is very limited. I would prefer to focus on the mountains, rather than Bern and the Rhine falls (also see this topic
), which are not in the Alps. For example: travel from Basel to Lucerne on your first day. Do a mountain trip from there. In the evening, take a train to Interlaken via Meiringen. On day 2 you could visit Grindelwald, and then travel to Geneva via Zweisimmen and Montreux.
