Day 1 (1 Sep) Explore Lucerne. Visit Mount Titlis. Spend the night in Lucerne.

Day 2 (2 Sep) Train to Grindelwald. Explore Grindelwald. Spend the night in Grindelwald.

Day 3 (3 Sep) Visit Jungfraujoch. Spend the night in Grindelwald.

Day 4 (4 Sep) Grindelwald to Geneva. Explore Geneva. Spend the night in Geneva.

Day 5 (5 Sep) Explore Geneva. Spend the night in Geneva.

Day 6 (6 Sep) Leave for Zermatt. Explore Zermatt. Spend the night in Zermatt.

Day 7 (7 Sep) Visit Matterhorn. Spend the night in Zermatt.

Hi RZ and welcome to MySwissAlps!

We have a good list of recommended activities in and around those towns on our website. I'm sure you'll find many interesting things to do! check out the following links:

I'd also suggest an 8 day Swiss Travel Pass to use to get around Switzerland. Read about the pass and its benefits here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/swisstravelpass

Thank you, Lucas.

Are there any other towns that I can possibly include in my itinerary?

It really depends on what you want to see or do in the towns you visit. One example I would suggest is to replace Geneva with Montreux. https://www.myswissalp s.com/montreux

I don't think you have much time to visit other towns. What you have planned now will keep you busy with doing and seeing a lot. :)

Thanks, Lucas.

I'll follow your recommendation and skip Geneva for Montreux. :)

Hi Lucas, is it wise to replace Geneva with Lauterbrunnen and make Lauterbrunnen as my base for 2 nights after Geindelwald before moving to Zermatt?

Well it really depends on what area you want to spend time in. Near Lake Geneva or in the Jungfrau region.

Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald are quite close to each other.

Geneva is quite out of the way when going to Zermatt from Grindelwald. Montreux is a nice detour but you could also just stay longer in the Jungfrau region if you think you'd prefer it. https://www.myswissalp s.com/jungfrauregion
