Hi nikita123,

Most of the day trips you listed can indeed very well be done from the towns you selected. However, if you don't want to spend a lot of time traveling you should consider skipping Montreux, Vevey and the Chocolate Train (departing at 9:00 AM from Montreux). I assume you're referring to the Chocolate Train, which includes a visit to the Gruyères cheese factory. That takes too much time from either Interlaken or Zurich, if you can reach Montreux in time at all. There are alternatives closer to Zurich and Interlaken, such as this tour. Also, you may want to put a visit to the Swiss Open-Air Museum near Interlaken on your list. There are demonstrations of cheese and chocolate making, and lots of other traditional crafts. Entrance is free with your Swiss Pass.

For Swiss Saver Pass details, please check this page and don't forget to select "India" and the preferred pass type and number of travelers to see the best reseller offers.

For hotels near the rail stations, please check these pages:

Does this help?

Hello nikita123,

I was suggesting to skip that because you said you don't want to spend a lot of time traveling. You can best check the timetable to see if a trip to the Montreux area is acceptable for you. Moneywise it doesn't make a difference because it's all covered by the Swiss Pass. It will be a long but scenic trip if you travel via Zweisimmen (Golden Pass route).

Hi nikita123,

First class is more comfortable and the windows are larger. The main difference for the leg Zweisimmen - Montreux is that you can book first class VIP seats in the front of the train. That's really special. There are only about 8 of such seats per train.

Your pass can be purchased here and you can pay with Indian rupees. If you want to book seats for the Golden Pass you can order that along from the same website as well, from this page. They don't sell tickets to the Jungfrau, Titlis and Schilthorn, unless these trips are included in a full travel package. You can purchase those ticket on the spot. They don't sell out. If you want to have them beforehand, you can order the tickets for the Titlis and Schilthorn through the Swiss Railways (payment in Swiss francs).
