I am visiting Switzerland in late June. This is my itinerary with a few questions, would be really grateful of some help because I have spent hours and hours doing research and am still stuck on a few things.
Day 1 - Land in Zurich. Explore a little of Zurich and get the train to Lucerne. Explore a little of Lucerne in the evening.
Day 2 - Mount Pilatus. Either Golden or Silver Round Trip - does this need to be booked in advance? Or can it be booked on the day? Does anyone recommend which route to take for this? ie boat to or from Alpnachstad and cogwheel up or down?
Day 3 - Golden Pass Journey from Lucerne - Montreux. I have done so much research on this and I am still unsure. Would it be best to book in advance? If so, which site to use? I have tried a few which don't seem to work and the cost varies dramatically (For instance on happyrail through this website they're quoting CHF70+ for just the Zweisimmen to Montreux leg). Also, would it be worth making the short trip to somewhere like Grindelwald from Interlaken on the way? Would a Saver Day Pass be worthwhile for this journey?
Day 4 - Train from Montreux to Geneva, fly home from Geneva.
Any advice / suggestions would be really appreciated.
