Have read so much that I am really confused as to what all should I include in my 8 day itinerary. However, have framed a bit and every help will be welcomed. I am visiting Switzerland in the first week of April 2012 and have opted for Interlaken as my base. Please see a tentative schedule below. These are just day plans. I would be doing these as per the weather conditions.
Day 1 - Arrive in Zurich by noon. Day to explore Zurich.
Day 2 - Leave for Interlaken after visit to the Lindt Chocolate Factory. After reaching Interlaken, visit Thun and Spiez. Specially a trip to the St Beatus caves.
Day 3 - Can you please guide me how can I use the Golden Pass Line to cover Jungfraujoch and Trummelbach falls. Also, should I get invest time in exploring the cities while coming back - Wengen, Lauterbrunnen, Kleine Scheidegg
Day 4 - Day trip to Mt Titlis and Lucerne.
Day 5 - Bern and Basel in a day.
Day 6, 7, 8 & 9 (I have a late night flight to take on Day 9 from Zurich) - For these days should I plan covering the Glacier Express or the Golden pass panoramic train ? Are these journeys really worth it ?
Also, how about visiting Geneva and Montreux in a day ? Is this doable. Also, how about the visit to Cheese factory and Chocolate factory in Montreux ?
Should I plan to do these on my empty days or something more interesting to see.
