Hi Park65, and welcome to the forum! Your itinerary looks great. It's doable, although day 2 will be long; but if that's fine with you, there's no problem at all. The advantage of your 4 day Swiss Saver Pass
is that you're very flexible. You can change plans according to weather circumstances, if that's necessary. It's wise indeed to check weather first before getting up to the Jungfraujoch. You can also take a look at the live cams showing the views at the top shortly before leaving. This is broadcasted through local TV stations, and can also be displayed at railway stations along the route (Interlaken, Kleine Scheidegg). The same goes for day 4: you may want to visit Pilatus first, if weather is better in the morning than in the afternoon. Just check the timetable
for traveling times and connections.
If you want to travel in panoramic Golden Pass trains, yes, you do have to make seat reservations
. If you're fine with regular regional trains running along this route, seat reservations aren't required. Both are mentioned in the timetable. You do have to add via-stations in order to get information on the Golden Pass route, as the timetable automatically comes up with the quickest routes. Enter Meiringen and Brienz as via-stations between Lucerne and Interlaken, and add Zweisimmen and Gstaad as via-stations between Interlaken and Montreux.
Our hotel pages on Interlaken
may be convenient for you.
