Thank you for your response. Our main idea is to do a bit of everything - cities (Zurich and may be Geneva?), natural beauty and family activities. From my research, it appeared that Interlaken and Lausanne are good central locations (and have lots of restaurants) - please let me know if you have a different suggestion. I did consider Lucerne - it appeared to me that Lucerne was probably just a 1 hr train ride from Interlaken. The other alternative was Bern... but I felt it was a good choice if we planned to have just one base - but wouldn't that mean travelling a lot?. We have to spend atleast 1 night in Zurich as we have to catch an early morning flight.
For a 9 day trip, I thought Lake Geneva can be included without much hectic activity. Would Montreux be a better base than Lausanne?
Yes, certainly, we will be travelling using a 8-day Swiss pass.
