Hi farrukh26,

On day 3, you could get off the train in Brienz and take the boat to Interlaken from there. I would not recommend to spend day 5 in Interlaken. Interlaken offers restaurants, hotels and souvenirs shops, but there isn't much sightseeing to do. You'd better spend your day hiking or do a different day trip in the beautiful region around town. Suggestions are here. More or less the same applies to day 8: Zermatt is a small town, so an actual city tour isn't available, but you can do a walk around town in about an hour. Also there's a museum. However, if the weather is fine you'd best head to the mountains. Suggestions are here.

You can purchase a 4-day Swiss Flexi Pass and use the free travel days on day 1, 3, 6 and 8. If you want to be sure of the lowest overall travel expenses: here is explained how to choose a pass.

This page with hotel suggestions for the various towns may be interesting for you as well.

Hello farrukh26,

You can't go wrong with an 8-day Swiss Saver Pass for you and your wife. Your child will travel along for free. All info (map of validity, how it works, prices, promotions) can be found on the Swiss Pass page. The plans you have listed are not included in the Swiss Peak Pass, see here.

Each pass has its own set of rules. If you want to be sure if another pass is better, you need to review the page about how to choose a pass that Annika gave you.
