We'll(my wife, my 2 year old daughter and myself) be reaching Geneva on 18/05/2018 and have planned for the following so far. However, I have some specific questions and need some expert advise on what I've planned.
Day 0 - Local sighseeing of Geneva and afternoon train takes us to Martigny.
Day 1 - We've chosen to go for 2 adult Swiss pass for 3 days starting day 2. We'll use it on Mont-Blanc express to reach Chamonix. We'll take the cable ride to Auguille du Midi and travel back from Chamonix to Martigny. In the evening, we'll board train to Interlaken and stay overnight.
Questions: a) Is Auguille du Midi cable car rides are discounted with Swiss pass? b) Will Auguille du Midi be safe for my infant daughter, specially when elevation of the peak is close to 3800m. c) Can seats in trains taking us to Interlaken need to be reserved with Swiss pass?
Day 2 - We'll start from Interlaken to Mt. Schilthorn via Lauterbrunnen- Stechelberg-Grimmelwald-Murren and descend via Murren-Grütschalp-Lauterbrunnen. In the evening, we'll travel further to Zurich.
Question: a) is this whole trip to Mt. Schilthorn via planned route is covered in Swiss pass? b) How much time is required for the whole trip starting and ending at Interlaken OST (ascending Mt. Schilthorn) if we choose to spend approximately 1-2 hours at the peak?
Day 3 - Local sightseeing in Zurich and in the evening we'll leave for Vienna for overnight train travel.
Please suggest if the plan looks a little too stretched(specially when we're travelling with a child so young). Additionally, do we need to get additional tickets/reserve seats with Swiss pass when we travel Mont Blanc express or Martigny to Interlaken or Interlaken to Zurich or can we just board any train taking us to there and show the pass wherever/whenever needed?
