Is it the restructured version of your itinerary that you posted here? To order of things does not seem logical to me. Also it's not clear to me where you would spend the nights. It looks like you would spend very much time on traveling, which is fine if you choose to do so, but there is a more efficient order. For example:
- Do the Chillon castle, the cheese factory and the chocolate factory from Montreux. You can visit the factories without traveling with the Chocolate Train.
- Go to Zermatt and spend one or two nights there. The Gornergrat is a great trip from there. Then take the Glacier Express to Chur.
- Then move to Lucerne to visit the Titlis and Pilatus.
- Finally move to Interlaken for Mürren and the Schilthorn. Interlaken itself is not that interesting. You'd best consider mountain trips, lake cruises and hiking.
Still, it's quite a lot for a week, but it's doable. The main factor to take into account is the weather. You need good weather for the mountain tops or it will not be worth the time and money to go up there. It helps to have multiple days in one base town to be flexible.
You can check this map
to see where everything is located and the timetable
to see how much time traveling takes. In any case you'll be needing a Swiss Pass
to save on traveling costs. Hotels near the rail stations can be found here
Brig to Chur (or St. Moritz I would say) is considered the highlight of the Glacier Express.
Does this help? Have fun!
