I am in thought and planning to visit Switzerland with following plan as per understanding. I want to buy 4 days STP pass for me and my wife.
Can you share your comment if the fgollowing plan looks okay or is it saying too many mountains. I want to cover: major mountains, famous fall around these areas, famous lakes with boating
Plan for the 5 days
4th July evening: start train journey Einthoven, NL to Interlake west via IC train which takes entire night to reach in morning at Interlaken west. Is this train option worth and confirmation for a couple?
5th July: to Schilthorn and lake THUN (time permits)
Start: Interlaken - Lauterbrunnen – Stechelberg: cable car to Schilthorn
Return: back to Interlaken via Grütschalp
Lake THUN boating in evening
All cable cars to the Schilthorn depart from the town of Mürren. Mürren can be reached via Interlaken - Lauterbrunnen - Grütschalp, or via Interlaken - Lauterbrunnen - Stechelberg. We recommend to go up via Stechelberg and go down via Grütschalp. That way you see more of the area, and going up from Stechelberg is quite spectacular as you will ascend an impressive 2108 m in just half an hour. From Interlaken, it takes about 90 minutes to reach the Schilthorn, depending on the route
6th July: start travel from Interlaken to Zermatt
Travel to: Interlaken west – Spiez- Brig- Zermatt
Visit Matterhorn glacier Does Regio express covers this route in STP pass 4 days?
7th July: Mt. Titlis.
In the morning, you would proceed to Engelberg from where you would experience an exciting journey to Mt. Titlis.
The last part of cable car way leads above the glacier. In Klein Titlis, it is possible to visit a glacier cave. Rest of the day would be free at your leisure.
Day 8: Mt. Pilatus or RIGI
During the summer, the "Golden Round Trip" - a popular route for tourists - involves taking a boat from Lucerne across Lake Lucerne to Alpnachstad, going up on the cogwheel railway, coming down on the aerial cableways and panorama gondolas, and taking a bus back to Lucerne.
Pilatus was named after a local legend which alleges that Pontius Pilate was buried there.
Day 9: ( I am without STP pass on this date but want to see following). Do you have any suggestion how to get following discounted as STP pass is for only 4 days.
wooden Chapel Bridge
Take a train from Lucerne and back to Basel airport in evening around 4 pm so to board the flight at 7 pm from Basel airport to Netherlands.
