1200 chf is a bit low,as things are very expensive here.but you can still plan it.if you can eat european stuff,then it is fine.if not,then indian restraunts are very expensive.then for food you better keep "ready to eat" packs from ITC,MTR,etc which you can carry with you n you may have to keep a 1 litre tea kettle to boil water to heat the food.you may go for the swiss pass from India itself as if you buy it from switzerland it will be expensive.you can go for the 2 in 1 scheme as you get a free ticket for your would be when you buy one ticket.
you can stay at the International Youth Hostels in Switzerland as these are very nice rooms for couples n it will be substantially cheaper tan hotels.you have a brand new hostel at Interlaken OST next to the station n 2 mins walk from the station.you should take a membership from the IYH in India from Delhi as it is valid globally.If you take it here in Switzerland,it will cost you a bomb.
you can stay put there in the hostel with a base in Interlaken you can go around Interlaken n then to Jungfrau peak and back.similarly with a base at lucerne,you can do titlis too via engelberg.start early for both the trips.
and avoid taxis ,it can be very expensive.with the swiss pass,local travel is mostly free so you can use the excellent swiss public trasport.

ashwin said: Hi,
I am planning a trip to Switzerland, for 5 days in July, for my honeymoon. I am confused between taking a package trip from India or making my own trip. I would like to know if it's possible to plan a trip for 2 people (apart from international travel) in 1200 CHF? If yes, please help me with how I could go about the same. Currently, when I search for options, it goes way above this.
Thanks in advance,
