Hello Bushan, and welcome! You should be able to combine this all in 4 days. Try to combine Lucerne and Titlis on one day. Jungfraujoch, Lauterbrunnen, Trümmelbach falls and Grindelwald can also be done in one (full) day. The Swiss timetable will help you plan your train and bus trips exactly. Just enter your travel date, departure and destination station and you'll get an extensive overview of connections including many details. The boat company for lake Thun and lake Brienz may be helpful too, in case you want to visit Brienz and Thun by boat.

A 4 day Swiss Pass (or a Swiss Saver Pass, in case you're traveling with someone else) would be the best solution, especially if free traveling appeals to you. Please find all details, including purchase options and a downloadable validity map, at the Swiss Pass page.

Centrally located hotels for Interlaken and Lucerne (both good towns for overnight stays in your case) can be found through the links I made.

Hi Bushan,

The Swiss Pass allows unlimited free traveling on the routes that are marked with a solid line on the map you linked to. You can buy discounted tickets for the routes that are marked with a dashed line. It's explained in the lower left corner of the map.

Hello Bushan,

Yes, a Swiss Pass will allow you the boat trips you mentioned for free.
You can read more about the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland on this page. There's also an overview of the network on which the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland is valid.

I hope this answers you questions!

As long as you have valid tickets for Germany and Switzerland (in your case a Swiss Pass for Switzerland) I see no problem, as you can use the Swiss Pass for any kind of public transportation as soon as you enter the country. I'm not sure if reservations for the train you mention are necessary, but I suppose you can find out through the Swiss Time table.
