The train trip from Basel to Thun is also not senic.
There are no mountains in that part of Switserland but a lot of industry and sound walls along the railway.
After Thun it is is nice, you are in the Berner Oberland with view on the Thunersee on the left site of the train.
You can fly from Amsterdam to Basel, but you have spend a lot time extra to go to Schiphol, check in, wait on the airport and go in Basel to the railway station. I think you have only 3 hours more in Switserland than you go by train.......
You can by day train but it cost you one full day.
Europa is not so small you think.....
