Dear Swiss Experts
Below are my itinerary for 5 Nights (from 12 June to 17th June) .I will be reaching Geneva from Rome by Flight , and this is my first experience planning such major trip on my own.
I appreciate your suggestion and tips for below itinerary.
(12 june) - Arriving Geneva airport at 10AM. Noon, will take the train to Montreux. Planning to do Chateu Chillon and walk along promenade, and leave to interlaken in the evening.
Besides the Chateu and beach, what else best to do at Montreux ? and is everything within walking distance? Are we able to leave our luggage in the train station?
How far is Geneva airport to Geneva train station? Is it the same place?
(13 & 14 June) - During these two days, Planning to do below 3 activities at Interlaken. Will I be able to cover these 3 within 1 1/2 days?
1) Cruise on Lake Thun and Lake Brienz - Where does the cruise start? I went through the website, it mentioned that the cruise starts near Interlakan OST and WEST train station. But didnt mention exactly where the location is and place to purchase ticket.
2) Schilthorn - Understand that we can only reach there through cable car from Murrren to Schilton. How do I get to Murren?
3)Grindelward - I dont plan to go up Jungfrau. But have plans to take train up to Grindelward. What activities can I do here?
I will also be purchasing the Swiss Travel Pass (4 days). Hence, do I need to pay for the lake cruise, Schilthorn and train to Grindelward?
