Hi Sam999 and welcome to MySwissAlps!

Bern isn't the most central location for some of your trip. Why don't you split it between Bern and Lucerne or Interlaken?

You can't visit the Matterhorn, only nearby mountains to get the best views. The Swiss Travel Pass gets you 50% off trips from Zermatt up to Gornergrat or Klein Matterhorn.

See what else is covered by the Swiss Travel Pass here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/swisstravelpass/ validity

I also think Lake Como (the town of Como anyway) is quite far to go as a day trip from Bern (4 hours each way). Have you looked at going to Lugano on Lake Lugano instead? It is similar but only 2 hours from Lucerne by train.

I'd play with the Swiss railways timetable here to see how long your trips will take: https://www.myswissalp s.com/timetable
