I wanted to do Golden pass panaromic express - VIP seat thats the reason why i diverted 1 day to Montreux

A very nice trip. You planning is very good.

You need no car to go to the smalle village of Lauterbrunnen. You can go by train from Interlaken Ost. The front part of this train is going to Lauterbrunnen, the back part to Grindelwald.

I think your child from 8 love it.

When our child was 8 years old, we go also every year to Switserland. Our child love walking into the mountains and traveling by train and cablecar. Take some small thinks with you for your child to play with when you travel a long trip by train.

Hii Rajesh-

Your itinerary is well thought out and nicely planned. You allow enough time in the Jungfrau region to adjust for variable weather. It can change rapidly up there.

A minor refinement - the cable way from Wengen goes to Männlichen. From there you can walk to Kleine Scheidegg.

I did that with my 8 year old granddaughter in 2009 and she loved it.

Hi Rajesh,

You wrote you intended to buy a "swiss flexi pass"; that pass was discontinued in 2014. I assume you mean a Swiss Travel Pass Flex. If so, are you sure that's the best option for you? You're traveling everyday, so a Swiss Travel Pass Flex Combi makes more sense. But, a regular Swiss Travel Pass is probably cheaper and more convenient. Be sure to do the math.


All you need to know about traveling by train, bus or car in Switzerland.
