I researched over the weekend to figure out the places whichI would want to visit during the two weeks in Switzerland. They are as below –
Lucerne, Engelberg region
Interlaken, Bernese Oberland region, Grindenwald, gimmelwald, Lake oeschinen, Schilthorn, Wengen, murren, Lauterbrunnen region, Diemtigtal nature park
Montreux, Areuse Gorge @ champ du Moulin, Chillon, Lausanne, Pointe de bellevue @ Chablais Alps, Rochers de naye, Vevey vineyards, Vufflens castle @ Morges
Zermatt, Lake Stellisee, Riffelsee, Gornergrat, Lac de fenetre @ st bernard pass
St Moritz, Appenzell
Scenic train journey like Golden Pass, Glacier Express, Bernina express (any possible?)
I have tried to group these as per my understanding of the geographical region. Can anyone help me with an itinerary to cover these places from a photographic perspective? I would like to do some night astro photography of any beautiful mountain (may be riffelberg, lacs de fenetre) so I am open to staying in the mountain huts as well provided it is doable with a 18 month kid and 3 adults aged 56 plus. If yes, which ones can be booked and how?
I have a budget of approx 1600 CHF per person (excluding the flight and visa expenses) for travel, accommodation, food (ready for self cooking as we are pure vegeterians). Is this doable?
Also, I would be interested to know if between 15 day swisspass or the self drive option which is more economical for my family of 6 adults. I am open to self drive too at least for a few days, if not for the entire trip, through the scenic alpine passes.
