We are planning a 12 day family trip with 2 adults and my 17 year old son in August. We are planning on flying into Zurich, heading to Lucerne region, down to the Jungfrau region and then to Zermatt and departing from Geneva. As far as train travel, I was assuming the Swiss Rail Pass would be best but based on the locations that we are traveling, does buying the individual regional passes make more sense? Being our first time to Switzerland, we are planning on doing a lot of the cable car, mountain scenery tours which are discounted with the Swiss Travel Pass But included in some of the regional passes.
Also, how many days would you realistically need to spend in the Jungfrau region to explore the towns and see the sights in summer? We were thinking 3 or 4 nights to give us the best chance of getting a day with clear weather up on the mountains. But if you feel that it could be done with 2-3 nights, we can adjust our itinerary.
