My wife and I plan to arrive in Geneva on late on Saturday Sept 15th- we will stay in a hotel near the airport that night. I recently discovered we will be present for the following Holidays:
Sunday September 16 Swiss Federal Fast All regions except Geneva.
Monday September 17 Bettagsmontag Bern, Neuchâtel, Vaud.
We had planned to stay in Vaud on Sunday night (Lausanne or Vevey), and take the Golden Pass from Montreux to Jungfrau region (Lauterbrunnen, Murren) on Monday and stay there several nights. I'd like to know how these holidays would effect our trip.
1) Will train schedules be different than a normal Sunday/Monday? Are trains likely to be more or less busy because of the Holidays?
2) We would probably plan things like this for Sunday: Olympic museum, Chateau de Chillon, boat ride. The castle is apparently open as usual. What about other usual tourist sights? Will most restaurants be open? Grocery stores?
3) Same questions for Jungfrau region on Monday.
Thank you, Marty
