Hello Fazili! According to my calculations, you're best off with a Swiss Half Fare Card
. The total costs of your Swiss travel plans (per person and in 2nd class) are about CHF 642.00. I didn't include a boat trip on Lake Lucerne in this example, as there are too many possibilities there, and I used a return boat trip between Interlaken and Brienz instead. The Swiss Half Fare Card costs CHF 99.00 per person and grants a 50% discount on all trips, which would make a total of CHF 420.00 per person. Your youngest child will travel along for free anyhow; your 6 year old will travel along for free as well if you order a free STS Family Card along with your Swiss Half Fare Cards.
If you plan on making some other trips besides the ones you mentioned the Swiss Saver Flexi Pass
or Swiss Saver Pass
may become more economical, as they allow free travel on a number of days. Should your plans change, please find out how to calculate which pass is most cost effective in our rail FAQ
Yes, you can take along your luggage on the Golden Pass panoramic train. By the way, seat reservations
are required for this trip.
As for your itinerary: I'd say that day 6 and especially day 7 are quite full. It's do-able to visit Mürren, Wengen, Grindelwald en Jungfraujoch in one day by making a roundtrip. But visiting Interlaken and Lucerne in one day, and make boat trips on two lakes, would be a bit too much in my opinion. This would require a very tight schedule with little room for relaxing and enjoying the views. My advice would be not to spend too much time in Interlaken. Lucerne has a much prettier town centre which is worth exploring. As for the boat trips: you may want to choose between the lakes as well.
The Geneva tourism website
will provide you with tips on sightseeing. A boat trip on this lake is possible of course, just as strolling along the shores. There are many buildings and museums to be visited as well.
Good luck on your further preparation!
