We are couple travelling to Switzerland for 4 days. Our plan goes like this:
- April 16th - Reaching Zurich and spending a day there. (Not very sure about places to go around. Suggestions are needed)
- April 17th - Starting from Zurich for Interlaken : Take train from Zurich(11:04 am) to Lucern (11:49pm) and then change train from Lucern(12:05 pm) to Interlaken(1:55 pm). We intend to do so as we wanted to go through the Golden Pass Route. We would be travelling with luggage, Is this train ride advisable?
After reaching Interlaken, I wish to take boat ride in Lake Thun and also explore Thun a bit? Where can I check Boat time-table? The link for sbb.ch does not give me option for boat and bus time-table.
April 18th - Going for Jungfrau visit. Where shall we buy tickets? Is there an option to buy it now online? After Jungfrau, would we have time for anything else in evening? Any dinner cruise suggested?
April 19th - Travel to Mt. Titlis. start from Interlaken (8:00am) to Engelberg (11:00am) From there, take gondola trip to Titlis. Do you suggest to buy tickets in advance?
April 20th - Planning to take Brienzer Rothorn trip by steam train. From Interlaken, takefirst train along the Golden Pass route, via Brienz and Meiringen, to Giswil. Change to the postbus along the Glaubenbielen Pass to the valley station of the cable car, just before the village of Sörenberg. (not sure about time table). Take the cable car up to the Brienzer Rothorn and take the cogwheel train down to Brienz. Walk over to the boat dock and take a boat to Interlaken.
We want to complete this trip by afternoon as we would take train to chur and then take train to Tirano. (Bernia express).
We are buying STP. Are all train travels (except Jungfrau and titlis trip) covered by Swiss Travel Pass or shall we buy any other pass for this trip?
Please send your suggestions. Our travel date is quite near.
