I just have two days in Switzerland and there are so many places to visit!! Please help me draw up a itienary for my travel. My place of interest are

Day 1 Zurich-Rhine fall- Bern
Day 2 Bern- Interlaken- Grindelwald- Geneva

1. I plan to take a train from Amsterdam on 22nd March; can you please suggest which should be my port of entry for Switzerland. I don't want to spend a lot of time travelling

2. If i enter Switzerland through Zurich, How do I reach Rhine fall and back to Bern?

3. Is Interlaken- Grindelwald doable in a days time. I plan to return to Geneva by 5 in the evening.

4. Is there a rail pass which would cover my travel from Amsterdam to Zurich and my travel in Switzerland. Also, I plan to go to Paris from Geneva.

Looking forward to your suggestions and help.

Hi Smruti,

1. From Amsterdam you'd be arriving in Basel.

2. & 3. The timetable helps to plan trips and see what's doable.

4. If you prefer unlimited traveling in Switzerland, without buying tickets, a 3-day Swiss Flexi Pass is the cheapest option. A Swiss Half Fare Card will probably be the cheapest option if you make the calculations. The tickets from Amsterdam to Basel and Geneva to Paris should be booked in advance. I would advice to do so as soon as possible as your travel date is approaching. As you live in India, you can get the tickets here.

I would assume the option above to be the best one. There is no pass that covers The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and France. A Eurail Select Pass would cover The Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland, and another option is the France-Switzerland Pass.

You're timeframe is very limited. I would prefer to focus on the mountains, rather than Bern and the Rhine falls (also see this topic), which are not in the Alps. For example: travel from Basel to Lucerne on your first day. Do a mountain trip from there. In the evening, take a train to Interlaken via Meiringen. On day 2 you could visit Grindelwald, and then travel to Geneva via Zweisimmen and Montreux.

Hotels near the rail stations can be found here.
