We are 2 adult and 3 children age 13,12 and 5 travelling to Zurich in June 2012.
Our itinerary as follow:
Day 1:- Zurich airport to Interlaken (overnite in Interlaken).
Day 2:- (Leaving luggages at I.O station) Lake Thun & Brienz boat & train trip, Interlaken to Wengen (overnite in Wengen).
Day 3:- Mount Jungfrau come down via Grindelwald (overnite in Grindelwald).
Day 4:- Grindelwald to Interlaken (collect luggages at station) to Lucerne to Engelberg (overnite in Engelberg).
Day 5:- (leaving luggages at Engelberg station) go up Mount Titlis, then from Engelberg to Lucerne (overnite in Lucerne).
Day 6:- Lucerne to Zurich airport.

Please advise on:-
1) Which swiss pass is suitable for us?
2) Does Engelberg Station provide locker service?
3) Will the itinerary be too hectic for a 5 years old?
4) Is the itinerary feasible? Please suggest.
Thank you.

Hello ccky1970! I think you should consider Swiss Half Fare Cards for the two adults. The children will travel along for free with the free STS Family Card. Your itinerary looks doable in terms of traveling times (please check the timetable to find out all details), but it may be hectic for a young child. Personally, I think it's more relaxed to pick only two addresses for your overnight stays. For example: choose the same hotel for day 1, 2 and 3 in Interlaken and the same hotel for day 4 and 5 in Lucerne. The trips you've planned can be made easily from these base towns and you'll be able to leave your luggage in your hotel.
