Hi ghuria,

A 4-day Swiss Saver Pass would be a good option, but a Swiss Half Fare Card may work out cheaper. The only way to tell is to first have a detailed itinerary and then do the math as explained here: www.myswissalps.com/train/ticketspasses/practical/chooserailpass

Day 1: the Rhine Fall would not be the best choice that late in the day. See here for how to get there and what to expect. I would rather recommend a boat trip, or just explore the old town center and the Bahnhofstrasse. Also see the Zurich page please.

Day 2: See here please:

Day 3: A Swiss Pass covers part of the trip (to Wengen/Grindelwald) for free and the rest is 25% off. A Swiss Half Fare Card includes 50% off on everything. Further information is here: www.myswissalps.com/jungfraujoch

Day 4: I don't understand your plans, but you can check the pages about Lucerne (see above) and Geneva: www.myswissalps.com/geneva

I hope this gets you started!

Hi ghuria,

1. It's just that most museums and attractions close at the end of the afternoon/beginning of evening. That goes for all towns. But since you only have a few days time, it may indeed be good to focus on Lucerne and have more time there. See here for what you can do.

2. Yes, suggested hotels are here on the Interlaken page. The trip to the Jungfraujoch is described in detail on the page I gave you in my previous post. Did you read the various tabs?

3. Please see the pages I gave you about those passes. Download the map to see what's covered.

4. You can walk around the lake and see the famous fountain for example. A detailed overview is here.
