Hello MadMax, and welcome to the forum. As for choosing the right resorts: that's always a matter or personal preference. I think it's important to take a look at tourism websites of the resorts you mention and see what appeals to you.
Will you be arriving by train in Geneva first? In that case, it's hard to choose between Geneva and Montreux. Montreux is located a bit more centrally, especially if you want to visit (the western side of) the Rhone valley. But both towns are charming.
In terms of location, Lauterbrunnen makes more sense than Mürren, as Mürren can only be reached by cable car. By the way, consider taking the Golden Pass line
when traveling from Geneva/Montreux to Lauterbrunnen!
If you plan to visit the Jungfrau region during your stay in Lauterbrunnen, Lucerne would be a logical next resort, as that allows you to explore yet another great mountain area.
helps you to find out about traveling times and routes. Hotels can be found here
. And since you plan to travel by train, you'll definitely profit from one of the Swiss rail passes
I hope this gets you started!
