Hello everyone,

Myself and my wife are planning a short trip to Switzerland. Our trip is for 2 nights and 3 days.We have booked all our 3 days stay in Interlaken.

Below is our itenary:

1st day : Land airport at Basel on Friday morning around 11:30AM. Start the trip from Basel to Lucerne and spend rest of the day at lucerne.Head back to Interlaken for that night stay.

2nd day : Interlaken to mount titlis.Spend whole day in Mount titlis.Head back to interlaken for that night stay.

3rd day: interlaken to jungfrough mountains.We need to make this day little shorter as we have got the flight at 9:30PM from Basel airport to head back to our place.

Can you guys please advice on our itenary ? Are we in the right places and spending quality time to make our short trip as a sweet and memorable. Also can you guys pleasee suggest about our travel options? We are looking to travel by train to all the places. Any suggestion for the rail passes which will be of economic for our trip ?

All suggestions please wwelcome.We are eagerly waiting for your reply.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi Balajij321 and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

With only 2 nights you might want to think about cutting down on the travel a bit. Going Luzern - Interlaken then back to Luzern the next day to visit Titlis is covering a fair bit of the same ground.

If it was me I would maximise my time in the Jungfrau Region once arriving in Interlaken. Depending on the weather you could do Junfraujoch via Interlaken - Wengen - Jungfrau - Grindelwald - Interlaken round trip (www.myswissalps.com/ju ngfraujoch/gettingther e) one day and Schiltorn with round trip Interlaken - Mürren - Gimmelwald - Stechelberg - Interlaken (www.myswissalps.com/sc hilthorn/gettingthere) on the second day before you have to get back to Basel.

If you are dead keen on Titlis then a more efficient route would be to go Basel to Interlaken first. Then on your final day go Interlaken to Basel via Titlis. If you leave early enough you might even fit in a couple of hours in Luzern on your way through.

Enjoyment of all the mountain tops are going to depend on weather so keep a close eye on the forecasts. I hope it is good for you. 😇

@rockoyster thanks a lot for your response.We will definitely think of revisiting our plan as suggesteted.

Can you also advice on the travel options? Do we get any rail pass or individual train ticket on that particular days?

Hi Balajij321,

The travel pass question is always a tricky one and even more so for really short duration trips. For example if you get a Swiss Half-fare card then you need to take trips with full fares equal to twice the cost of the half-fare card before you break even.

All I can do is point you to this www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass

Hi Balajij321,

I doubt a rail pass would be advantageous for you on such a short trip. But be sure to use the link from Rockoyster to compare costs to be sure.

You may be interested in the 3 day Swiss Travel Pass - it may not be the cheapest option but it would be the most convenient for you. If it isn't too much more than point to point tickets I would give it a hard look. Once you buy it you can just hop on any train you want and go. The exception would be Mt. Titlis and Jungfraujoch where it covers a portion of the ticket cost but not all.
