This is for the remaining portion of my Swiss trip, after Lucerne, for which I would greatly appreciate some recommendations to fine-tune. I will be reaching Grindelwald first on 18 June noon time, and followed by the 3 nights stay there, leaving for Zermatt on 21st where I stay for 2 nights.
Since I am coming from Lucerne, I am planning to make use of "Golden Pass line", which was recommended at your website.
I am planning to go to Junggfraujoch and Schilthorn on 19th and 20th respectively, which I understand should be around half day trips (each is 1.5 hours one way per sbb.ch) and besides that would like to an "easy" hiking like "First - Bachsee - First", as recommended here. I would like to know whether I should combine it with Junggfraujoch or Schilthorn. I would also like to go to Lauterbrunnen Valley waterfalls but not really sure if I cam combine with any of the two above. I was also wondering if there is anywhere I can go for my half day on 18th when I arrive.
And on the 21st morning I leave for Zermatt where I plan to visit Matterhorn and Gornergrat. Since here as well, I will reach in the afternoon, I am not sure if I can go to Matterhorn/Gornergrat on the same day; although both seem to take an equal commute time of 40 mins each.And if that is possible, I would like to do the other one with a partial trip with Glacier express to have this world famous experience! Is it possible? and I am hoping that I will not need a reservation for this.
Sorry if I sound confused, which is the case unfortunately :( But many thanks to your website resources again, which have been immensely helpful otherwise generally I am not good at planning itineraries!
PS: I will be leaving for Zurich from Zermatt on 23 morning and plan to do a city walk followed by my outbound flight to finish my (hopefully) great Swiss Vacations.
