My brother and I are traveling to Switzerland early September. As of right now, we have our plane ticket booked but nothing else.
I am posting here to see if the days I have marked for the cities and which cities will be used for base is workable. As for activities, it will be decided when my brother comes home from college. We will be traveling via train and bus through the country.
Day 1 9/2: Arrive in Zurich 8:50am, go directly to Lucerne. Explore the city and lake. Stay in Lucerne
Day 2 9/3: Either Mt. Rigi or Mt. Pilatus. Maybe add another local activity if we explored the city day before. Stay in Lucerne
Day 3 9/4: Train to Grindelwald. Explore. Go to Mt.First. Stay in Grindelwald-base
Day 4 9/5: Jungfrau Region (Top of Europe...) I am a little confused on what we can do in this area and if it does not take all day what else to do to fill the day. Stay in Grindelwald.
Day 5 9/6: Looking to paragliding into Interlaken. Explore Interlaken. Stay in Grindelwald.
Day 6 9/7: Train to Zermatt. Stay in Zermatt

Day 9 9/10: Train to Gruyeres. Explore. Back to Montreux
Day 10 9/11: Explore Montreux. Night in Montreux (might switch with day 12 and not stay the night and go directly to Bern and stay night there)
Day 11 9/12: Train to Geneva. Explore. Night in Montreux
Day 12 9/13: Train to Lausanne. Explore. Night in Montreux (If day 10 is switched, morning in Montreux, train to Bern, explore and stay)
