I leave for Switzerland on Sunday, and have booked all hotels for my stay. My plan Was:

5/14 - 5/16 - Bad Zurzach (Business)

5/16 - 5/18 - Lucerne

5/19 - Booked Gotthard Panorama Express to Bellinzona (overnight in Bellinzona)

5/20 - Plan Was to take Centovalli Panorama train to Brig, then on to Wengen

5/20 - 5/22 - Staying in Wengen

5/22 - Back to Zurich, for overnight before trip home on 5/23.

I am purchasing an 8 day Swiss Travel Pass, and had planned on seeing as much as I could by train. I was really looking forward to the Centovalli route...it sounded beautiful. Any suggestions on an alternative scenic route from Bellinzona to Wengen?

Hello Beth and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

The replacement bus service follows pretty much the same route as the Centovalli Express. I'd stick with that plan.

Don't forget to include via Kandersteg between Brig and Interlaken. Then will travel on the Regio-Express Lötschberger train over the traditional, more than 100 year old mountain route, giving you a wonderful view along the impressive peaks and down into the Rhone Valley. The 1-hour faster route via Visp takes you through the fairly lengthy Lötschberg Base Tunnel with rather limited views.

Thank you so much...do you happen to know if the bus will also be covered with my Swiss Travel Pass?

Yes it will. The bus is just a substitute for the train while the train is out of operation so the route is covered by the STP.

As far as I know the road is still closed too, so the bus partly takes a different but also scenic route.
