Hello! I need some help with planning as I am unfamiliar with train routes and the best way to see some highlights. We are a family of 4 and have the STP with the Family Pass for our two daughters (ages 12 & 15). We are interested in seeing Gruyere, Bern and the alpine slide in Kanderstag, but are wondering where it is best to fit these into our itinerary. Here is the details of our itinerary so far:

Day 1: Arrive Geneva at 9:15 am

Day 2: Day trip from Geneva to Annecy

Day 3: Travel from Geneva to Lausanne (possibly going to Gruyere first in the morning and arriving Lausanne by early evening)

Day 4: Open, possibly doing to day trip to Chillon Castle

Day 5: Lausanne to Zermatt, possiblly seeing Chillon Castle at this time instead of the day before

Day 6 - 8: Zermatt, activities to include at least one morning skiing, one day hiking the suspension bridge, and one day exploring other actvities like the Gonergrat

Day 9: Zermatt to Wengen. We will most likely stop at Kanderstag for the alpine slide as this is a MUST for my youngest daughter.

Day 10 - 12: Wengen - open to activities such as Jungfraujoch, Staubbach Falls, Murren, Grindelwald, Stechelberg, Trummelbach Falls, Interlaken, and anything else. Wondering what is the most efficient way to see this area???

Day 13: travel from Wengen to Luzern, possibly via Bern, but I am wondering if there is a more efficient way to see Bern on another day?

Day 14 - 16: Luzern. I have not had a chance to research this area as much and am wondering if it makes sense to take a day trip up to the Rhine Falls or Basel?

Day 17: travel from Luzern to Zurich

Day 18: leave from Zurich

Hi scrapinasnap,

You can do Bern from Wengen. I don't think that's a bad idea.

There are a lot of things to do in Lucerne (www.myswissalps.com/lu cerne/activities). I wouldn't plan a day trip to Basel or the Rhine Falls.

To define the most efficient way of travelling, I would look at the map (www.myswissalps.com/ma pswitzerland) and then use the Swiss railways timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to plan your trip.
