Day 1 (12 August): Travel from Zurich to Interlaken by train. Plan to relax that night.Need advise on: - - travel time from Zurich to Interlaken, is it direct train? how convenient is to travel with luggage. Further is it worth taking dinner cruise on Lake Brienz?

Hi Narayanagar and welcome to MySwissAlps!

  1. No, there aren't direct trains from Zurich to Interlaken. You can check schedule information on the Swiss railways timetable here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/timetable
  2. No reservations needed. You can use the timetable again to find schedules on your date of travel
  3. I'd travel from Interlaken to Zermatt via Spiez and Kandersteg. One of the more scenic routes in Switzerland. :) Things to do in Zermatt can be found here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/zermatt
  4. I'd then travel via Montreux and the Golden Pass line to Lucerne. https://www.myswissalp s.com/goldenpass
  5. See here for Mt. Titlis directions: https://www.myswissalp s.com/titlis/gettingth ere
  6. See timetable. :)
