Greetings! ! We are 4 families with 5 kids (Age 5 to 12) arriving Geneva on 2nd week of august and stay 3 nights in Boltigen. I am planning to visit these places and i shall buy 4 day swiss train pass. Please can you suggest if i can cover all these places within 3 days ? as i am not sure how long the train journeys take.

Day1: Geneva to Inrerlaken by train and take boat trip for 2 hours and return to Boltigen

Day2: Jungfrau - ice skating, cable car etc and return to boltigen

Day3: Mt.Titlis or Pls suggest any scenic train route so i can return boltigen same day

Day4: Any one attraction in Bern in morning as i have train to paris in evening

Pls suggest your ideas. Can i cover these places without taking 4 day swiss place? Pls clarify.

Hello aarudhran,

Time wise your plans are possible. Here are some thoughts:

Day 1: you can take a boat from Interlaken West to Spiez or Thun, then by train to Boltigen. Please see boatlakethun.

Day 2: I'm not sure what you mean to do. Is it Jungfraujoch? There is no cable car there, and no ice skating. Please see jungfraujoch for details.

Day 3: a nice route is Boltigen to Bern to Luzern via Schüpfheim, then back via Meiringen and Interlaken (Golden Pass line). This takes at least 6 hours so not much time left to also include Mount Titlis, which is a bit far from Boltigen anyway. Please see here for nearby day trips: berneseoberland/ activities.

I don't know what you mean by "swiss place". If you mean which rail pass fits your plans, please see train/ticketspasses/ practical/chooserailpa ss. Swiss Travel Pass points of sale can be found through swisstravelpass/price.

Many Thanks Annika.

On Day 2, i wanted to go Mt. Jungfraujoch. Do we have time to see Mt.Titlis as well on the same day? as the kids like cable car & skating.

Thanks again for suggesting my other day plans.I find that 4 day swiss pass suits me well as i commute more.

Hi aarudhran,

Jungfraujoch and Mount Titlis is too much for one day. You'd better combine Jungfraujoch with some hiking or a visit to the Trümmelbach Falls:

There's no outdoor ice skating in Summer. Not that I know of anyway. There's an indoor sports center in Grindelwald you can look into: ic-ice-skating.html. I'm sure the children will love the Snow Fun Park at the Jungfraujoch too.

In your case you can get your Swiss Travel Passes from www.swisstravelsystem. The passes can be printed at home or delivered for free.
