This site is just wonderful! My husband and I are planning a trip in Sept to Paris then to Switzerland. I need some help with planning the trains in Switzerland for 7 days. We have purchased a Swiss flex pass for 4 days, great deal 2 for 1. Which days would be the best to use the pass? If we use the pass for the discount to go up on Jungfraujoch for day 3 does that count as a day? We will take the TGV from Paris and back, to proceed onto to Montreux can we use the Rivera card from the hotel? Do they issue these before you check in? Or do we have to pay for another train from Lausanne to Montreux, we are staying at Hotel Eden?
Day 1 Paris to Lausanne then on to Montreux spend the night.
Day 2 Montreux, side trip to Gruyeres, then on to Interlaken up to Murren, staying at Eiger Guesthouse. How do we get up there?
Day 3 Murren
Day 4 Murren to Bellinzoina then staying in Lugano
Day 5 Lugano to St Moritz (this is a post bus only, no train?)
Day 6 St Mortiz to Luzen
Day 7 Luzen back to Paris
The only set schedule we have are day 1-3, so open to suggestions of where to go and where to stay. We really do not want to be on any train longer than 5-5 1/2 hrs if possible. What do you think? Thank you!
