We are travelling down the Rhine in early June (Amsterdam to Basel); arriving in Basel June 6.We like hiking and walking and wanted to spend enough time in an area for good walking opportunities; we also want to go up the Jungfraujoch and are interested in the cable car to Schilthorn withthe idea of getting off midway down and walking. My husband likes taking pictures
we plan to use the Swiss half fare pass and take the Golden Pass railway route as much as possible. Should we book in advance or should we just book when we get to Switzerland?Also have trouble finding where to buy passes in Canada
Day 1: arrive early morning in Basel; take train to Lucerne and stay overnight; Day 2: take train to lauterbrunnen:
Day 3: lauterbrunnen:Jungfraujoch?
Day 4 : Lauterbrunnen;Schilthorn?
Day 5: Lauterbrunnen: other gondola ride or cable car with chance of walking? walks around Lauterbrunnen?
Day 6: take Golden pass strain to Lausanne; spend 2 nights and take early morning train on Day8 to Geneva airport for return home
