Hi, I have 5 full days to spare towards the end of my holiday. I was planning to do the Glacier Express from St Moritz to Zermatt. My plan was to take the train from Budapest to either Innsbruck or Zurich on the first day and then travel to St Moritz on the second day, leaving days 3-5 to do the glacier express and enjoy Zermatt and the region. So my question is whether you would recommend stopping the first leg at Innsbruck and then head st St Moritz, or go to Zurich and then St Moritz. I will have visited Zurich earlier in the holiday, so I won't be missing anything. Additionally, I will have a Swiss travel Pass, so I guess when booking the train tickets I will only need to buy tickets to the Swiss border and then use my Swiss Travel Pass.

Finally, would you recommend my spare time at the end of the journey be spent in the Zermatt region, or would you recommend the region around Wengen?

Thanks

justin

Hi Justin.

Welcome to My Swiss Alps -

Any recommendations about high alpine regions depend on the time of the year.

When will you be traveling?

Justin-

Thanks.

In July, few or no problems with closed trails, hotels or restaurants in the alpine regions. So, you will find plenty of tourists, too.

I'd try to maximize my time on the Jungfrau region. Personally, I like to stay in Wengen.
