Thank you for you reply. It's very useful.
But thing's going to be change a little bit. I was planning to stay there only 4 days. However, there are so many things we want to see,
so turn out we gonna stay there 6 days. In this case, I don't think the swiss pass is my best option ?
There is my plan:
Day 1: Arrival at Geneva airport from Paris, spend half day there and then heading to Montreux.
Day 2: Montreux to Interlaken by Golden pass line, stay at Interlaken
Day 3: Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen, see Rigi, stay at Interlaken
Day 4: Jungfraujoch & Schilthorn stay at Interlaken
Day 5: Interlaken to Lucerne, see Pilatus, stay at Lucerne
Day 6: Look around Lucerne then heading to Zurich then Munich by train
There are some questions and hopefully you can help me out. Appreaciate it.
1. What is the best travel pass option for this trip ? Should I get a eurail select pass including Switzerland and just pay the extra which doesn't cover ?
I know the swiss card is also a good option. But how does the round trip work ? My understanding is I can get my first trip and last one for free ? And it has to be in one day and the quickest route as well. So Idon't think I can use it from Geneva to Interlaken by taking Golden pass line assuming I'm going to travel between them within one day.
2. About day 4, is this possible the see Jungfraujoch & Schilthorn in one day. I also want to do a little bit hiking.
3. I know the see all the mounts need a little bit luck. So what can I do if the weather is not good at those days. Glacier Express ?
4. How much do I pay if I have a 2nd class pass and want to upgrade to 1st class between Montreux and Zweisimmen ?
And is that worth paying extra money for the vip seats from Montreux to Zweisimmen ?
One again, thank you some much for your helps. You guys are awesome.
