Hi team my swissalps, further to my previous posts, kindly note we are arriving Basel on 18th June @ 1000 hrs (family of 5 adults & 2 kids, 11 years and 4 years ). Staying near Interlaken. Planning to take a rented car for 5days for ease of travel from Basel to Interlaken with luggages.Please suggest best itineraries and sightseeing options basis following plans

day 1 - any sightseeing or day trip option near Basel or I intend to arrive at Interlaken and keep that day for local sightseeing.

DAy 2 - jungfrau full day

day 3 - Lucerne area and mount titlis

Day 4 - full day with any panoramic train - glacier express/ golden pass or gotthard panormic. Which is the most scenic route here in June andd most convenient from Interlaken.

day 5 - nothing planned, please suggest what to include ?

day 6 - return to basel for flight at 1200 hrs.

Can we also visit pilatus and schilthorn on any of the above days ? What all other excursion options do we have near Interlaken.

which travel pass will be the best option for above excursions - 4 days Swiss travel pass or half fare card or BO regional pass ?. Does BO pass covers free travel from airport to this region. I am yet to decide whether to take a 5 seater car or 7 seater as 7 seater is costing almost double.

Hi Sankalp,

Day 1: For ideas on what to do on those towns look here: Basel / Interlaken.

Day 4: Golden Pass to Montreux is by far the most convenient option for you from Interlaken.

Day 5: Seems like a good day to go to Schilthorn.
