First of all - thanks for creating an awesome forum to help many of us new Swiss travellers!
Me and my wife are going to be in Switzerland for a total of 6 days beginning September 14th through September 20th. We love nature, want to enjoy hiking/biking and basically are looking for a nice romantic holiday; We arent too big on cities/museums and would want to devote time seeing nature's work.
Here is the proposed itinerary..
Sept 14 - Arrive in Basel via night train from Amsterdam; Head over to Luzern and then take a Golden Round trip to Pilatus before leaving for Murren using the Golden Pass rail; Overnight in Murren
Sept 15 - Explore BO area; Trip to Schilthorn and hikes in and around the area; Possibly bike around as well; Overnight in Murren
Sept 16 - Explore the BO area; Trip to Jungfraujoch and back; Head over to Lauterbrunnen; Visit the Trümmelbach falls; Possibly head down the valley to Interlaken if time permits; Overnight in Murren
Sept 17 - [Unsure about what other things to do - PLEASE SUGGEST]
Sept 18 - Take the Golden Pass rail (via Gstaad) and head on over to Montreux; Visit the Chateau de Chillon and explore the town; Possibly take the Chocolate train through the valley and back; Spend night in Montreux?
Sept 19 - Head on over to Lausanne and later on to Geneva; Spend night in Geneva
Sept 20 - Head back home on an early morning flight
My questions :
> What Swiss pass would you recommend? Also, if me and my wife are always travelling together everywhere, will we each need a pass if we get say, the Swiss Saver? Notice that we are in Switzerland for 6 days
> Would you recommend heading over to Zermatt with the spare day we have (Sept 17) or should we enjoy more sightseeing in the BO?
Please feel free to recommend - we are definitely wanting to adjust our plans accordingly.
