Hello! I am new to this forum and I seem to find everyone very friendly so I am asking for any recommendation to my itinerary below. Pls be honest with your comments. Gladly appreciated! I am traveling with my husband, we're in our mid 40's. By the way, we will be coming from Cologne, Germany (to visit our daughter) but we are from California, USA. Here we go!
8/2: Day 1 - Zurich Airport - Lucerne: Chapel Bridge and Old Town (easy travel day)
8/3: Day 2 - Lucern- Lake cruise over to Weggis, cable car to Rigi Kaltbad and train to Rigi Kulm, then down to Vitznau with the train and boat on to Flüelen, then either boat or train to Luzern
8/4: Day 3 - Lucern - Mt. Titlis (return)
8/5: Day 4 - Lucerne - Interlaken Ost via Golden Pass line (single); Interlaken Ost - Wengen (single) check in our hotel in Wengen
8/6: Day 5 - Wengen - Jungfraujoch - Grindelwald (single); Grindelwald - Interlaken Ost (single)
8/7: Day 6- Interlaken Ost - Schilthorn (return)
8/8: Day 7- Another day open for recommendation *** stay in Wengen/Murren
8/9: Day 8- Interlaken Ost via Spiez and Zweisimmen on the Goldenness line to Montreux (single); Chillon Castle and lakeside walk. This is the last day of our 8-day STP. Am I understanding it correctly?
8/10: Day 9 - Montreux to Gruyeres (cheese factory) OR Broc (chocolate); I prefer to get to Geneva the same day or just skip Gruyeres and go to Geneva and relax - take a boat trip around Lake Geneva instead?
8/11: Day 10 - Geneva to Dusseldorf 9 am flight
Additional questions: If I am buying the 8-day Swiss Travel Pass, it will only cover our Day 1-Day 8 of our trip, is that correct? What do you recommend to do for our Day 9 in Montreux to Gruyeres and to Geneva transfer? Should we rent a car for 1 day, picking up from Montreux and drop off at Geneva airport? Pls help! Thanks!
