Hello Arno and Annika!
We are planning a day trip to Zermatt from Interlaken in July and need your suggestions if feasible or not.
We are staying in Interlaken from 6th night to 10th July morning.
Based on weather forecast, we are thinking of taking 7:05am train from Interlaken West which reaches Zermatt 9:13am. Would like to take Gornergrat bahn from Zermatt, 9:36am. and back. Will it be possible to fit in a hike from Rotenboden to Riffleberg on our journey to or way back from Gornergrat at that time of the year? We are a family of 4, 2 adults in early 40s and 2 children 10yr and 15yr old. The younger one is motion sick and am not sure if we should take the Gornergrat bahn immediately after reaching Zermatt or maybe spend sometime in the Matterhorn museum or visit Sunegga first!
We are taking an 8day Swiss Pass. Just want to make sure if we would be getting a discount of 50% on individual adult return tickets worth 86 Euro (making it 43 Euro) while the children go free with the family pass on the Gornergrat bahn! Would also like to know if Zermatt to Sunegga is a free ride! and how to reach Leisee lake from Sunegga?
On our way back to Interlaken, would like to take the Lotschberg Express via Kandersteg. Will that be possible. Please share your thoughts on the itinerary. Thanks and regards!
