Day 2 - Morning we will do a trip to mt.titlis. afternoon comback to lucerne and take a boat ride in the lake, also see other sideseeing in lucerne, transport museum and ?? if any other please suggest. Evening take a train to interlaken or lauterbrunnen and checkin hotel. [stay in interlaken/lauterbrunnen]

Day 3 - morning visit bern, bernese oberland, trummelbach falls and Rhinefalls (possible?) [stay in interlaken/lauterbrunnen]

Hi Tamia,

Day 2 is too full as the transport museum takes at least half a day or even a day. It's great for children! See the Lucerne page for other suggestions please.

Day 3: The Rhine Falls are not near Lauterbrunnen, so you'd better skip them. The Trümmelbach Falls will not open until early April. You can either spend the full day in Bern, or combine it with a visit to Thun or a boat ride from Thun to Interlaken.

Day 4: for a scenic trip, be sure to travel to Montreux by daylight (before 7 PM) via the Golden Pass line.

I'm not sure which rail pass you intend to purchase, as a "5 day family pass" does not exist. I assume you will get a Swiss Travel Pass or Swiss Travel Pass Flex and a free Swiss Family Card? Please see the links for information and prices.

Hopefully this helps with your further planning. Have a great time!
