I am now planning our trip to Switzerland May 15-31 2024. Flying into Milan and then taking train to Varrena and spending 5 nights there. Those reservations made.
No reservations yet for Switzerland
Bernia Express from Tirano to St. Mortitz spending 1 night then taking regular trains to Grindewilde for 3 nights. Next, to Inerlaken to explore and take the Lake Birenz boat to Geipach. Spend a night at the hotel there.. Then take train from Birenz to Lucerne for one night or 2??? Next, we take the Gotthard Panoramic Express boat and train to Lugano for 2 nights then back to Milan.
Does that itinerary sound reasonable for our first trip to Switzerland? We are in our mid 70’s. We will not be doing much hiking but can walk up and down streets and plan to take cable cars or funiculars. . Also, would it be worth taking the Wengenalpbahn train to Lauterbrunnen for a day trip while in Grindewilde? Any suggestions are appreciated on anything to enhance our trip. We will be getting the Swiss Travel Pass but I’m not sure which one is best.
