Hi Maria,

Once again a big thanks to you and your colleagues for the thoughtfully laid out website that covers all the relevant details.

I would say it’s a one-stop site for planning your trip to Switzerland down to the last mile detail.

As you guys rightly pointed out earlier that D5 and D6 schedule was rather ambitious considering me and my wife’s conditions.

However, we managed to do the following without much hassle.

D1 – arrived by TGV from Paris, i.e. up to Lausanne, then started using our Swiss Travel Pass (as suggested by you) to Brig and finally Zermatt.

D2 – availed the ‘sunrise at Matterhorn and breakfast at Gornergrat’ trip by Gornergrat Railway.

Thereafter went up to see Klein Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, by a series of lifts, in the afternoon.

D3 – took Glacier Express to St Moritz.

D4 – went to Diavolezza by bus and then lift.

Came down and went up to Muottas Muragl by train and then the funicular.

Came back to St Moritz and went for the hike to Lake Staz – which was so relaxing.

D5 – took train to Chur, then to Zurich HB, on to Bern, thereafter to Interlaken Ost and finally reached Lauterbrunnen. It was done with luggage and without mush hassle! Particularly, in Zurich we had to go from platform 9 to 32 with transfer time of 9 minutes only and it was done in under 7 minutes comfortably, so nice is the layout of the station, pretty amazing.

Stayed at Lauterbrunnen in the wonderful little Chalet Rosa that offered view of Staubbach fall from the room, which was especially spectacular in the late evenings and early mornings.

D6 – reached Wengen by train and then to Kleine Scheidegg and from there to Jungfraujoch.

Took a helicopter scenic ride back to Lauterbrunnen.

Again reached Wengen by train.

Took the lift to Mannlichen, hoping to complete the hike to Kleine Scheidegg in time.

Unfortunately, we could cover a little only of that hike and returned back to Mannlichen, due to time constraint, to avail the last but one ride back to Wengen.

Spent some nice time in Wengen, which we felt, is the best place to stay because of the glorious views.

Finally came back to Lauterbrunnen pretty late and had to content ourselves with a cold dinner.

D7 - took, lift up to Grutschalp and then train to Murren.

Availed cable car to Birg, did the skywalk there and enjoyed the view of the three biggies (Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau).

Cabled up to Schilthorn and enjoyed the thrill.

Came down to Birg and then Murren.

Hiked down to Gimmelwald from Murren, which was an easy one down the hill and quite enjoyable.

Went down to Stechelberg by cablecar and took the bus to Trummelbach Falls and then walked back to Lauterbrunnen.

D8 – train to Grindelwald and then lift to First.

Did the First Tissot skywalk.

Did the hike to Bachalpsee. Had our packet lunch by the lake side. Felt like staying there for a long time (it was so beautiful), which wasn’t to be. Couldn’t do the next leg of the hike to Bussalp, as we felt that we will miss the last post bus by the time we reached Bussalp – Alas. Hiked back to First and went down to Grindelwald.

Went to Interlaken ost by train and took the funicular ride to Harder Kulm, had our dinner there and came back to Lauterbrunnen.

D9 – caught train to Interlaken Ost and onward to Luzerne.

Took train to Engelberg for the two segment cable car trips to Mt Titlis.

Came back to Luzerne.

D10 – Took train to Zurich for our overnight stay and catch the flight back home next day.

We felt bad as the tour was over. In our Country, we have larger and much higher mountains and even better vistas. But, we are yet to make them so easily accessible to old people like us, as you swiss people have done so commendably which allowed us to go up close.

Once again we thank you for the super work you are doing.

God bless you and your team.

Hi Tamal,

Thank you for the great report about a great trip. You certainly saw a lot of highlights in your 10 days. I sometimes refer to the Swiss Alps as a very large playground, because of all the lifts and trains making everything so easily accessible. That's exactly what you experienced :-) I hope the weather worked out for you.
