Hi, we are going on our europe trip starting next week and were planning to be in Switzerland from 1st to 4th September. Here's our itinerary:
1st Sept (Eurail Pass travel day):
- Board train from Paris departing ~12 noon to Lausanne reaching around 3:30 (seat reservation made).
- Board GoldenPass line from Montreux 16:50 (20 mins away from Lausannne with regular trains) and go to Interlaken Ost (changing at Zweisimmen).
- Check in at Airbnb.
2nd Sept & 3rd Sept (Both not a Eurail travel day)
- If good weather, head up to Jungfraujoch, otherwise explore towns of wengen/grindelwald by local buses. Keeping 2 days to give 2 attempts at a clear day for Jungfrau.
4th Sept (Eurail Pass travel day)
- Checkout from Airbnb.
- Head to Chur and then do Bernina Express all the way to Tirano (reaching in the evening to our hotel).
However, the weather forecast shows that it is expected to rain starting on Thursday (Sept 1st) during almost all parts that we were planning to go to. The current cam view at Jungfraujoch doesn't look too bad to be honest but I am afraid with such predictions our plans might be doomed.
So, I am reaching out to the experts here to help devise a plan B. Our Airbnb is cancelable for the next few days and we have not really made seat reservations for trains within Switzerland yet. The only constraint is that we wish to limit our eurail pass travel days to 2 within this period. Alternatives I am right now considering are zermatt, and take the glacier express to St Moritz, which can put us back on track to end up in Tirano later. But even the predictions there are for rain.
Thanks in advance!
