Hi tarun27...I have just returned from my holiday,which included 8 days visiting the different areas [had 8 day swiss pass] From Lucerne I went to Lauterbrunnen,via Brunig Pass train route.Then took funicular up to Grutschalp.From there, walked [easy] to Murren..such great scenery/weather,walked on via Gimmelwald to Strechelberg[all downhill].Then continued my walking to Lauterbrunnen,but detoured off the route to visit Tummelbach Falls,before reaching Lauterbrunnen for my train back to Lucerne. Got off at Interlaken Ost and did the Lake Brienz cruise from Ost to Brienz..back on train to Lucerne. Another fantastic day was my Voralpen express train[Pre-alpine route] journey...loved the scenery,all the way to Romanshorn[bus doing part due to rail works].Stayed on train and travelled to Stein Am Rhine[lovely Swiss town] From there, took boat along Rhine to Schaffhausen. Walked the path to The Rhine falls...but caught the train back to Schaffhausen.I then caught train to Zurich airport for my flight home later that night...but the train back to Lucerne would be interesting[scenery] and not a too long trip.I had great "summer" weather mid july....no rain, temp mid/high 20c so was able to take full advantage of all the sunshine hours.
Hope this helps with your planning:-)
