Hi AnaG,

  1. Brienzer Rothorn, Niesen and Schynige Platte jump to mind and all are near Interlaken. Look at our Interlaken activity page for details on these trips: https://www.myswissalp s.com/interlaken/activ ities<br /> Another option would be a day trip to Lake Blausee and/or Kandersteg. Check out my trip report to Lake Blausee /Kandersteg and Brig here: myswissalps.com/forum/ topic/blausee-and-brig-2-days-1-night.
  2. Glacier Express reservations can be made here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/glacierexpress/p ackages from Interlaken you take a regional train to Andermatt or Brig and then you can take the Glacier Express to Zermatt. Or you can take the Glacier Express from Zermatt to Chur on your way back to Zurich (if you want to do the full trip.
  3. Zermatt activities are listed here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/zermatt/activiti es have a look at Gornergrat!
  4. You could travel Via Chur on the Glacier Express, via Brig and Kandersteg or via Visp and Montreux and then the Golden Pass.

You can order your Swiss Travel Pass through myswissalps.com/swisst ravelpass/price.
