I'm planning a trip to Switzerland for 7 days and below is what I'm thinking. Is it too much to try to do all that each day? Which train pass should I get if any? The more I read about the train passes the more confusing as to which is the right pass to choose from or how many passes do I need?
Day 1: Zurich to Interlaken. Interlaken to lake brienz, Iseltwald, lugerrn, and back to Interlaken. (All train/bus/ferry)
Day 2: Interlaken to Thun, bern, siigriswil and back to Interlacken. (All train/bus/ferry)
Day 3: Interlaken to zermatt/matterhorn and back to Interlaken. (Train and cable car)
Day 4: Interlaken or Lauterbrunnen to Schilthorn, Jungfrau, Klein Scheidegg, Griindelwald then back to Interlaken or Lauterbrunnen. (If from Lauterbrunnen then it's all cable car? If it's from Interlaken then I would have to take the train to Lauterbrunnen and then cable car?)
Day 5: Lauterbrunnen, waterfalls (walk)
Day 6: Lauterbrunnen to wengen (cable car?)
Day 7: Lauterbrunnen to Zurich (train)
We will be staying at hotels in Interlaken and Lauterbrunnen. I read some hotels will give you a visitor's pass that'll cover trains, buses, ferry rides and discounts for cable car. If that's correct then I wouldn't need to get any train passes except for arriving/leaving to the airport? Would you know if these two locations fall into the Canton categories to provide those free visitor's passes?
Thanks in advance!
