Need help to plan our first trip to Switzerland. We (couple and 11 year old kid) will be arriving on May 26th(11.30am) and leaving on June 1st(3.50pm) from Geneva. I realise that a week is not enough time to thoroughly see one region leave alone the whole country but still would like to get a taste of this scenic country. We are early risers and would like to see as much as possible in the limited time.

We are more into the scenic sightseeing than museums. Would really appreciate if someone can help to make a doable itinerary with the following places in mind. Please feel free to add/delete places with more appropriate places.

Grindelwald,Lauterbrunnen,Wegnen,Jungfrau,Mt. Titlis or Mt.Jungfrau, Glacier Express or Bernini express,Lucerne.

Would also like to include walk/easy hike to at least one scenic place. Which one would be better: Having a base at Lucerne for the whole trip or few days in Lucerne and a couple of days in Grindelwald?

Is it possible to do two places in one day ? for eg. Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen or Wegnen and Jungfrau? Can you also suggest other scenic places in the vicinity of above places which can be done along with these places?

Thanking in advance

Welcome to MySwissAlps, Seema!

Most of your points of interest are situated in or near theJungfrau region, so I would suggest to spend at least half of your stay there. You could spend the remaining days in Lucerne. It's hard to incorporate the Glacier Express or Bernina Express in these plans, as both routes are quite far off from the Jungfrau region and Lucerne. You would manage to do part of the Glacier Express, from Brig to Andermatt for example, and then continue your journey north. That's not what I would prefer though. I think you should look into the Golden Pass between Montreux and Interlaken/Lucerne; it's a great scenic alternative and very easy to combine with your other plans.

Places close to one another can easily combined on one day. A good example is the round trip to the Jungfraujoch, which allows you to explore Lauterbrunnen, Wengen, Kleine Scheidegg and Grindelwald all in one day. And in Lucerne you could spend half a day exploring the town and the other half on a trip up to the Pilatus or a boat ride over the lake. These are just examples; the timetable will help you to estimate what's realistic.

These general planning tips may be of help too.
