I am travelling from Paris to Zurich by Train on 10th May. I have 9 days to explore Switzerland. I plan 4 nights in Interlaken, 3 nights in Lucerne and 1 night in Zurich because we fly back to Dubai from Zurich on 18th night. We are 2 adults and 2 kids, will take Swiss Travel Pass of 8 days.

We want to cover most of the mountains and scenic train routes in 9 days.

Please suggest what will be the correct way to go, so I can finalise my hotel bookings.

Thank you and kind regards

Hi Prashant74,

As far as the train route, really either way is fine. Perhaps I'd go to Interlaken last as more mountains may be open for you to visit then.
