Just looking for advice on my plans for a couple day trips while in Switzerland. I'm not sure if I'm being overly optimist on doing all these things on particular days. I am traveling by myself, and I am not one to normally linger at tourist shops; i'm coming to Switzerland to see the famous mountains...not shop. lol.
On day 3, I am staying in Lucerne (arrive the night before). I plan on seeing Mt Piltus and Stanserhorn on the same day then continue onto Bern in the evening. Is it possible to see Mt Piltus and Stanserhorn in the same day? How long do you need to see both?
On day 5, I am traveling from Bern to Zermatt. I plan to leave Bern early (6-7am) and travel via rail to Interlaken and go to Harderkulm. Hopefully be done by noon (or earlier) then travel to Grindelwald/Wengen to see Jungfraujoch. After that, take a train to Zermatt. Is this overly ambitious? Is it possible to take see Interlaken (harderkulm) and Jungfraugjoch in the same day? I plan on storing my luggage at the Interlaken train station. Which is the best station to arrive in Interlaken? If I could only do one, is Harderkulm or Jungfraujoch better to see?
On day 6/7, I'll be in Zermat. I arrive the night before (on day 5). I am hoping to see both Gornergrat and Matterhorn paradise on the same day. Is it possible to see both in the same day? If I could only do one, which is better to see?
Given views in the mountain is weather dependent, is it best to buy the tickets up the mountains the day of? or is it best to reserve them in advance? Do they ever sell out?
Thanks in advance for your opinions!
