This is our first trip to another country so we are extremely excited and out of all the places in the world this is the one we chose. Just wanted some opinions and tips for our itinerary if anyone could be so kind as to provide any. We have an outline for our trip and are trying to fine tune it.
Note: 2 Adults and one 4 year old. Late June/Early July. No specific order for the following days as of yet.
Day one: Arriving at Wengen home base and settling in for a 7 night stay.
Day two: Schilthorn, Birg, Murren exploration, North Face Trail Hike, Allmendhubel visit, and Murren Dining
Day three: Oeschinensee Lake. That's it. Going to be a day trip. Hiking Panorama Trail, Riding the Summer Toboggan, and lounging at the lake.
Day four: Schynige Platte, Lake Brienz. Cogwheel Train, Schynigge Platte Tour Hike, Lake Brienz Ferry from Interlaken OST, Geissbach Falls, Brienz exploration.
Day five: Easy day or so it seems. Lauterbrunnen, Mannlichen Royal Walk. Trummelbach Falls, Lauterbrunnen Exploration, Playground at Mannlichen, Royal Walk Hike.
Day 6 & 7 = Bad weather / Flex Days. Options include: First - Bachalpsee, Panorama Trail: Mannlichen - Kleine Scheidegg, Harder Kulm & Interlaken area, Jungfraujoch, or maybe even some more time spent exploring some villages. Jungfraujoch seems amazing but not sure if we want to do it given all the other cheaper (and amazing) options available. Plus the Schilthorn seems like a nice alternative.
Day 8 = Lucerne. One day to explore here before heading back to Zurrich.
This is an outline so far. Too ambitious? Not ambitious enough?
Also, we bought a Swiss Travel Pass not really knowing all the other options available. Does there appear to be a better option for us?
I have been reading threads on these forums for a while now and appreciate the insight given here. Any help for our specific case would be greatly appreciated!
