Hi Packard and welcome to MySwissAlps!

If you are looking for ideas on things to do in each the towns you are visiting it is best to look on our town page here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/wheretogo/towns. Find the town page you are looking for and click the "what to do" tab to read a list of suggested activities.

Look here to see what is covered by the Swiss Travel Pass" https://www.myswissalp s.com/swisstravelpass/ validity For example, Schilthorn which can be reached from Mürren (near Lauterbrunnen) is free for Swiss Travel Pass holders.

And look here to find online retailers to buy the Swiss Travel Pass from: https://www.myswissalp s.com/swisstravelpass/ price

You can use the Swiss railways timetable to plan out all your trips between towns and mountains or lakes here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/timetable

It is a quick trip but you are packing in the highlights nicely I think.

Hi Pakard,

Your departure and end time for Luzern to Interlaken and Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen are the same so that can't work. :) Otherwise the times look fine. They would be correct if you found them on the Swiss railways timetable.

The routes you list are all fully covered by the Swiss Travel Pass if you weren't sure.

The route between Martigny & Chamonix-Mont-Blanc is covered by the Swiss Travel Pass yes. I've not bee to Chamonix but it is a better idea than Montreux for a mountain experience if that is what you want. The trips to and from will be fairly long 4/5 hours.
