Opinion from certain travellers is that in case of bad weather, Zermatt can be given a skip. A visit to Zermatt is worthwhile only on a clear day. I want your opinion on this.
I am apprehensive about booking at Zermatt because of this.I have scheduled it as a day trip from Interlaken, so that in case of bad weather I can choose an alternative location.
The revised itinerary I have thought of goes like this.
TGV from Paris(07.07am) to Geneva. Change over to Swiss Rail, travel to Montreux. Spend the day at Montreux and board an afternoon train(17.36 pm ) to Interlaken. In the month of July, I am told that Switzerland has daylight till late hours(almost till 9 pm). True?I
It's an important factor because I am told that the train route to Interlaken is very scenic, specially the section between Bern and Interlaken. Correct me in case of errors in my info.
Day trip to Zermatt or a different location depending upon weather. Overnight at Interlaken.
Day trip to Jungfraujoch. Overnight at Interlaken.
Trip to Lucerne and Engelberg. Wish to stay around Lucerne. Found a lovely affordable accommodation at Emmetten. Please let me know your opinion about this location.
Overnight at Emmetten.
Early morning train(08.08 am) to Andermatt. Board the Glacier Express from Andermatt at 11.46 am(winter time). Travel to St. Moritz. Arrival time 16.58 pm.
Please let me know which will be a wiser option, stay back at St Moritz or proceed on to Zurich? Proceeding to Zurich on the same day will result in a 12/13 hours of train travelling. Alternatively we can check in at St Moritz and take a morning train to Zurich.
Sightseeing at Zurich and if possible Scaffhausen.
Fly out from Zurich.
Your opinion and suggestions are eagerly awaited.
