Still doing more research, I am into doing a detailed itinerary for our 16 days Switzerland trip in April (13th to 28th).
We will be arriving at about 6am in Zurich and departing at 11.45am from Zurich.
We will be getting the 15 days Swiss Travel Pass (I reckon we need this pass as we travel quite extensively).
Here is our draft itinerary and would appreciate if we can get some experts’ advice. Plan will be changed according to base on weather.

We like to know if:
Is this advisable to train straight to Montreux from Zurich Airport? Or should we start from Luzern --> Wengen --> Montreux --> Zurich? We decided to based ourselves in Zurich the night before our departure date.
We are thinking of getting apartment. What do you think about our base?
Really appreciate if you can give us some pointers.
