Hi reddevil and welcome to MySwissAlps!

It looks like a good itinerary! I'll add just a quick comment:

  • Day 3 - Do you have something specific to do in Lungern? It is a lovely and scenic trip there but you will do the same trip the next day to Interlaken. How about a day trip to Bern?
  • Day 4 is a bit of a long day to me. Just keep that in mind - be sure to use the Swiss railways timetableto plan out all the trips (if you haven't already).

Otherwise everything seems reasonable. I'm not sure if I have better suggestions for you on your other questions - they are nice trips but I can't say that you'll like them more or less than other places. :)

Have you also decided on a rail pass? Be sure to review our page on how to choose the best rail pass to help you.
