Please suggest if this is fine and which swiss pass or half fare card works best for me.

Thanks a lot for your guidance.

So my stay would be 3 nights grindelwald,2 nights montreaux

Hello Rajesh,

My preference would be this order:

  1. Montreux
  2. Grindelwald
  3. Lucerne

That way you can cover the entire Golden Pass line when you transfer from Montreux to Grindelwald and from Grindelwald to Lucerne.

Zermatt would be quite a long day trip. It's worth it if you don't mind that, and if you do so on a clear day so you won't miss the views there. I would recommend to do the trip up the Gornergrat. Montreux is the best place on your list to do this day trip from, but you'd better check the timetable to see if the long travel is worth it to you.

Once your itinerary is final, please visit this page to select the best pass. You can even do with an 8-day Swiss Pass if you only plan short trips on day 9 and 10 (e.g. just move from Lucerne to Zurich). A Swiss Half Fare Card could indeed also make sense, but you have to do the math as explained on the page.

Hi

Thanks for reply.

which is better to visit

bern ,basel or zurich

I checked and felt that swiss pass works best.

Do I need to purchase titlis, pilatus and jungfrough tickets for my daughter as well or she travels free?

You're welcome Rajesh! In your case a visit to Bern would get you the most variety in your trip. You can visit Bern from Grindelwald or from Lucerne (via the scenic railway through Schüpfheim). We have pages about Basel and Zurich too, so you can check which one appeals to you most.

If your daughter is 15 while traveling she travels along for free everywhere if you order along the free Swiss Family Card. Swiss Pass points of sale can be found here.
