Hi jatinsmehta,

Looks good!

Just a comment on Day 5: I wouldn't plan on having time for Bern - I'd do Harder Kulm and Lake Brienz and then head to Wengen for check in.

Now just use the Swiss railways timetable to plan out the exact schedules. www.myswissalps.com/ti metable

Have you decided on a rail pass for your trip? The 8 day Swiss Travel Pass would make the most sense I think. www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass

yes, the 8 day Swiss pass is my choice,I'm well versed with sbb app too, so finding trains will be very convenient.

on Day 5, I had planned to take a dip in Aare river, let's see how it goes. Your suggestions very much appreciated.
