<<"Day 2 - Lucerne and back to Interlaken. Day 3 - Jungfraujoch region Day 4- Any one city - Basel or Lausanne - Any other suggestions? What are the places to see in Basel?Day 5 - Glacier Express tour - half-trip onlyDay 6 - Interlaken local (probably per you suggestion Lauterbrunnen ,Thun, whatever is feasible">>
Supporting Arno's comments, Bern could be nice for day 4. Thun is close buy and pleasant.
If you really wanted to push, the one combination of cities that could be jammed into a long day 4, picking from your original list, is Bern and Basel. Bern and Thun is much easier. Lausanne is a bit far.
The train ride from Interlaken Ost to Bern is about one hour, and the train from Bern to Basel is about one hour. Frequent service on both stretches. The trip from I.O. to Luzern is 1 hour 51 minutes, for comparison.
You are wise to leave two days for the Berner Oberland - Day's 3 and 6. They are almost the same, and you would not want to go up to Jungfraujoch on a cloudy day. The whole point is the vbiew.
So, by having two different days in the area, you can hope for good weather on at least one of them
In fact, watch the weather, and go up to JFJ on whichever day gives clear weather, then rearrange the other days.
