Hi edkurkurkian,

Welcome to MySwissAlps! Apart from the fact that most of the activities are weather dependent, your plans seem fine to me. Although the Giessbach is on Lake Brienz, so combing these trips in one day makes more sense than going there twice. Note the limited boat timetable in April.

I don't understand day 5. I think there are some spelling errors there.

Hi Arno,

thank you for your respond and suggestion as to combine Giessbach and Lake Brienz in one day trip, I will do that, day 5: there were a lot of miss spelling I apologize, what I meant is

day 1 : arrive Geneva in the morning, sightseeing the remaining

day 2: take golden pass train to Montreux ( any suggestions what to see) then continue to Grindalewald stay two nights

day 3: jungfraujoch, then take boat to lake Brienz.

day 4: visit Giessbach and mount Titlis

Day 5: continue to Lucerne stay two nights, take Worapen_ express and cable car to Ebenalp

day 6: visit Lake Constance, Rhine river, Rhine falls

continue train to Zurich for overnight stay,

given my vacation is in Late April (unfortunately I cant change the date), and most of the activities are weather dependent, is it doable? any alternative itinerary?

again thank you all for any suggestions

Hi edkurkurkian,

Tips for things to do in Montreux are on the Montreux page. There is no Golden Pass train from Geneva to Montreux by the way, but you can take it from Montreux to Interlaken and then switch to Grindelwald. The train on day 5 is called the Voralpen-Express (Pre-Alps Express).

This will work in late April, but you will have to check the timetable, particularly for your boat options and Ebenalp. As for the weather: you just have to be lucky :-) That rule applies all year round.
