First, let me say how impressive (and helpful) the website has been. It's obviously a product of passion.
My plan is as follows, arriving in Zurich on July 17th. I will be traveling on an 8-day Swiss Pass. My main goal now is to nail down my scenic train trip dates so that I can reserve seats early in the 90-day window.
July 18 Zurich - Jungfraujock - Zermatt
July 19 Zermatt all Day
July 20 Zermatt - Glacier Express - St Moritz
July 21 St Moritz - Bernina Express - Tirano - Express Bus - Lugano
July 22 Lugano - Gotthard Express - Lucerne
July 23 Lucerne all Day
July 24 Lucerne to Zurich
1) Overall, what do you think? Does anything stand out as not do-able, too rushed or to slow? Other thoughts or suggestions?
2) For Day 1, what is the suggested routing from Zurich then to to go up to Jungfraujock and come down then travel on to Zermatt. Is it a reasonable plan to get from Zurich to Jungfraujock to Zermatt all in one day while spending several hours at Jungfraujock?
3) What about planning on going to Jungfraujock at this time in July - weatherize that is? I could leave Zurich quite early if that would give me a better chance of clear skies?
4) For each of the scenic trains, Glacier, Bernina and Gotthard, what are the best places to get off for a few hours for lunch - or is that possible on each, or any of these trains - or are they single trains daily that run right through their respective routes?
