I'm already in konstanz and planning a trip to Swiss and getting confuse on routes and accommodation. Let me give you brief info

2 adults (age:59,35) and 1 child (3years) planning to take 3 day swiss pass

Places we would like to go:

1.Lucerne, Interlaken, jungfrau, lauterbrunnen, murren (possible to cover in a day and stay in interlaken or lauterbrunnen?)

2. Glacier express or Bernian express (which route is better) brig to chur or st Mortis

I would like to find out which route we should take to cover this route which would save time and where we can find cheap and best accommodation. Also looking to walk less due to elder and kids.

Hi Ss and welcome to MySwissAlps!

You could base yourself in Lauterbrunnen or Interlaken. I think Lauterbrunnen is nicer. https://www.myswissalp s.com/lauterbrunnen

You don't need to visit Interlaken. From Lauterbrunnen you can visit the Jungfraujoch and Murren in one day. Best to leave Lucerne for a new day. Use the Swiss railways timetable to plan your trips: https://www.myswissalp s.com/timetable

The Glacier Express (https://www.myswissalp s.com/glacierexpress/g ettingthere) runs from Brig to Chur and on to St. Moritz if you want. You don't take the Bernina Express at all (Chur to Tirano).

I should note that the Glacier Express is quite possible fully booked but you can try to reserve here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/glacierexpress/p ackages - if it is full on your preferred date of travel you can take a regional train along the same route so you get the same views.

We list some nice, budget accommodation in Lauterbrunnen here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/lauterbrunnen/ho tels
