Morning everyone, I have only been using this site a week and am very impressed. With the kind advice from people. My trip next year is 14 days. As follows, disembark ferry at Amsterdam and drive to strasbourg for overnight stay. Then on to montreux for two nights. Then to Zermatt for two nights then a night in adelboden. Followed by three nights innertkirchen then lucerne two nights before an overnight at Nürburg on way back to Amsterdam. Hope to do rochers de naye, see Freddie Mercury.... Matterhorn, jungfraujoch and pilatus... Also do furka, susten and grimsel passes, hopefully top down. A lap of nurburgring to finish. Had planned verona and Innsbruck via stelvio but don't want 5hours in car every day. Plan on half fare passes for the train rides... Anything obvious wrong here??? Hoping it looks good.
Good morning! I'm sure you've done some research planning your road trip, but just in case do read these before you begin your road adventure.
You may be using car trains on some part of your journey so this information is helpful too: www.myswissalps.com/ca r/cartrains
Do take that note some of the mountain passes you mentioned may be closed especially in winter. So do plan ahead.
Some places like Zermatt and the Jungraujoch are inaccessible by car so getting the Swiss Half Fare Card is a good idea. For more details, click this link: www.myswissalps.com/sw isshalffarecard/price
For inspiration, I would use a combination of self-drive trips from these links as a guide:

June 25th start
Thanks - good dates. The high Alpine passes open sometime around the end of the first week of June.
all looks good to me. Starts on my 60th birthday!
What accomodation are you using?
Assume you are going DFDS to Amsterdam?
<<"A lap of nurburgring to finish. ">>
Are you predicting lap times, so that we compare you with the Porsche team?
Lap time will not be great, I'll leave the quick stuff until I get back to the ps4.... At least I know the track 😂👍
Yeah, dfds.... Do not fancy driving down to Dover..... Good nigh ts kip and off fresh ready for six hours to strasbourg..... 😀
