Hi Aman,

With 3 nights planned in Grindelwald you won't need that extra night in Interlaken. I would add it to perhaps Zermatt or Luzern (Zermatt is a bit of a trip from Grindelwald for just 1 night). Use the Swiss railways timetable to plan out all your trips.

Yes, travel to Zermatt is included on the Swiss Travel Pass. Some of the trips in Zermatt are further discounted (50%) such as Gornergrat and Klein Matterhorn.

July or August should work - with perhaps August being the best option for a better chance of clear skies and nice weather.

Hi Aman,

There's no need for reservations. Please be aware that the timetables show the quickest connections by default. That means that between Interlaken and Zermatt you would normally travel via the tunnel connecting Spiez on the northern side of the mountain range and Brig on the southern side. If you don't mind a longer journey and prefer scenic views, the regional Lötschberger train, that winds its way through the mountains, is a nice alternative. Enter 'Goppenstein' as a via-station in the Swiss timetable to get details on this route.

Credit cards and debit cards are widely accepted in Switzerland. I would however bring some cash, which can be obtained from ATMs in Switzerland. Some smaller shops, like the bakery in my village, don't accept any cards. More information about how to pay in Switzerland can be found on the web page here.
