Thank you so much Annika for your advice.
We have been doing quite a bit of research for the past few days and this is our updated itinerary.
Day 1-3: Reach Zurich early afternoon (last week of March) and travel to Interlaken straight. Spend 3 nights in Interlaken.
Day 4-5: Interlaken --> Montreux in the morning via Golden Express route ~2 hrs, spend 2 nights in Montreux
Day 6-7: Montreux --> Zermatt via raileurope, spend 2 nights in Zermatt
Day 8-9: Zermatt --> St Moritz via Glaciar Express ~ 8 hrs, spend 2 nights in St Moritz
Day 10: St Moritz --> Lugano via Bernia Express train and bus ~6 hrs, spend the night in Lugano
Day 11-12: Lugano --> Luzern via Wilhelm Tell express train and boat ~6hrs, spend 2 nights in Luzern
Day 13: Luzern --> Zurich, spend night in Zurich
Day 14: Flight home from Zurich
We try to as much of the scenic rail trips as possible but is mindful of not doing too much stuff as well. Hence, we were thinking of skipping either Zermatt or Montreux and spend more night is Luzern/St Moritz. Any suggestions? Especially for this period of the year....
And also, I read that it would be better to stay in Grindelwald / Wengen rather than Interlaken? And would the 15 day swiss travel pass still make sense for this plan?
