Hi hetal, and thank you for joining us!

As for which mountains to pick: that really depends on what you are looking for. If I had to pick two I would not visit both Jungfraujoch and Schilthorn because they are close to each other. You can best decide after reviewing the following pages, where you can read about the trips, the activities and see pictures:

Please note that driving in cities like Geneva, Zurich and Bern can be pretty complex, with much traffic, one way streets, and it's not always easy to find a parking spot in the town center. In fact your entire trip can easily be done by the excellent train system if you wish. The children travel for free with all trains! If you are going to drive though, you can best look into the Swiss Half Fare Card.
