I arrive in Zurich on the 2nd of July 10.00 am by flight, and need to get to Meiringen where I will be staying for 2 nights leaving for Lucerne on the 4th July and stay in Lucerne for 2 nights and leave for Zurich on the 6th of July for a flight back to London at 9.30 pm.
I needed your help to decide what will be the most scenic routes to travel during this time.
I have bought a 1 day travel pass for me and my wife for the first day i.e. 2nd July, this was available on the Sbb site for a limited time and for the rest of the days I have a 4 day Swiss pass
Day 1: Zurich to Meiringen : Shall I take train from Zurich to Meiringen via. Lucerne - Interlaken- Meiringen or shall I go via Bern along lake thun to Interlaken and then to Meiringen, which is more scenic irrespective of the travel time involved. If I take the Bern route would you suggest getting off at some small villages encounter, or get off at Bern for some time
Day 2: Meiringen to Jungfraogoch: How should I travel by train or by bus again to see the most scenic route and should I go via latterbrunnen or grindelwald. During my return spend some time in Interlaken before heading back to Meiringen
Do I need to go to Interlaken or is there a way directly from Meiringen to these places during my journey to Jungfraogoch, again which will be most scenic
Day 3: Meiringen to Lucerne: Again which route, can spend time stopping at small villages as will have this day for leisure and relaxing, and want to cover Mount Rigi from Lucerne in the later half of the day
Day 4: Plan to visit mount Pilatus or can skip it , any alternatives to this if can be suggested are most welcome, I want to cover the most scenic routes
Day 5: Spend some time In Lucerne city and then head to Zurich
Plan to visit the Rhine falls if possible or shall I see around Zurich, not much interested in museums, so any other options
Again I am open to the change in itinerary if there are any suggestions
