Visa is approved so I can continue planning without feeling wary! :D
Summary: 5 adults (3 of us coming from Basel on May12 afternoon, parents landing in Milan at 6pm). Main goal is to explore the Jungfrau region, planning to stay in Grindelwald due to low season.
Rough outline so far :
Staying in Grindelwald from 12-18 May. Leaving by train from Spiez to Milan on 18th.
As for the 6 days, we are planning to mainly cover the Jungfrau region
1) Lake Brienz/Thun cruise and Interlaken area (Harder Kulm in eve), 2)Lauterbrunnen and Jungfraojoch, 3) Murren-Stechelberg-(optional Schilthorn), 4) Wengen and some activities in First, 5) Day trip to Lucerne 6) extra ( point 1 might require 2 days)
Over the last few weeks, I have been wondering if it is worth adding one of the following -
a) a day trip to Montreux/Saanen (depending on STP vs BO regional pass)
b) Mom Dad can take train from Milano Centrale to Lugano, we can come to Lugano on Day 1 as well, and spend a night and the following day exploring the region, before moving to Grindelwald as base for remaining trip
Do any of these seem like good ideas? I have consciously been trying to minimize the area covered so we can enjoy each part enough instead of just running around all week. But a lot of the forum posts are much more ambitious in terms of area coverage than my original itinerary, so I figured it might be worth asking for opinion and advice.
