I am visiting Switzerland in mid may 2018 for my honeymoon. I will be arriving to Basel from Paris on 19th May via train by 3 pm. I need help to choose scenic trains based on following itinerary.
Day 1 – Paris - Basel – Wengen : I think we should arrive to Wengen by evening (7 PM). Can we explore anything nearby at late evening?
Day 2 – Wengen to Jungfraujoch top of Europe: Does it require full day? If not then can we go for Golden pass train and do the round trip to Montreux? What if we leave Jungfraujoch by 3 pm can we do return trip from Montreux on same day? We will be staying in wengen for this night.
Day 3 – Wengen to Lucern: Take other part of Golden pass from Interlaken OST to Lucern. Check in to hotel at Lucern and then go for classing round trip or majestic round trip to Mt Rigi. Can this be done in afternoon session after we reach to lucern and do the checkin to hotel?
Day 4 – Lucern to Mt. Titlis and Mt. Pilatus.
Day 5 – We have to checkin to hotel at Zurich by night as we have early morning flight next day. After checkout from Lucern hotel should we go for Golden pass trip (if it’s not possible on day 2 from wengen) or we should go for Glacier express. Whatever trip we pick, it should end at Zurich. Can you suggest the best one?
Also, should we go for 4 days Swiss pass and buy point to point ticket from Basel to Wengen for first day or we should go for Half fare card with one day travel pass for first day?
Thank you for your help.
