Hi,

This Forum is great. I would like to get help with our Switzerland trip for 8 days in May (23-30) We wanted to come for Honeymoon, but could not come and now after 8 years, it is finally happening.

We are planning to buy Swiss travel pass for 8 days

  • 23: Arriver in Zurich and visit Rhine falls Accomidation(23-26): Greppen, Luzern (we chose to stay here to get a better feel of Switzerland beauty, Is it easily accessible by public transport ? )
  • 24: Mount Rigi and Bern
  • 25: Mount Pilatus/Titlis and Zug (Which is better to visit Pilatus or Titlis? Since we are visiting Jungfrau, I don’t want all our visits to snow mountains )
  • 26: Golden Line to Interlaken (Can we include any other place on this day?) Accomidation(26-29): Bönigen (Is it easily accessible by public transport ? )
  • 27: Mt Jungfrau(Can we include any other place on this day?)
  • 28: Golden Line to Montreux (Can we include any other place on this day?)
  • 29: Zermatt/Breithorn Accomidation
  • 29: Zermatt
  • 30: Zermatt->Chur Glacier express. Chur to Zurich Airport

Regards, Sravani.

Hi Sravani -

Welcome to the forum.

You have picked some nice places to stay.

What time of day do you arrive at Zürich Flughafen (airport) and what time of day do you leave?

Here is a start on answers to your questions -

Greppen is accessible by lake boat or by bus.

Bönigen is accessible by bus and lake boat:
