Hi All

We have planned the below itinerary for our Switzerland trip in August 2022. We are looking for assistance ins choosing the right Travel pass and also some itinerary advice as we spend a week in Interlaken.

Aug6 : Arrival in Zurich at about 1500 hrs. We have airport transfers booked.

Stay in Zurich 6th & 7th August. We plan to cover the Zurich Lake, Lindt Chocolate Experience, Utliberg and the old town area during our stay.

Is there something more that we can cover in the 1.5 days we are in Zurich?

8th : Zurich to Interlaken. We plan to make Interlaken as our base and have blocked an apartment for our stay. We are there till the 14th August.

In the 6 days here we plan to cover: Jungfrau, Murren, Wengen, Lauterbrunen, Grindelwald, Zermatt , Harder Klum , Lake Thun & Brien and Lucerne. While also engaging in some fun adventure activities like paragliding and sky diving.

Is this too much to cover in 6 days? Can someone help us make an itinerary for these 6 days in Interlaken?

14th Check out of hotel and train to Basel. Onwards to Paris from Basel.

With this itinerary in mind:

Which is the best travel pass for us? We think we should buy the Swiss travel pass buy the rest of the extras on discounted prices as we can explore Zurich, Interlaken and also travel to Basel for our onward to Paris?

What would be an deal 6 day Itinerary for us to ensure we take full advantage of the time we are in Interlaken.

Any advice is welcome. Thanks for helping us!!

Hi Ravi and welcome to MySwissAlps.com!

You can find more activity tips in Zurich at www.myswissalps.com/zurich/activities. I recommend this self guided walk in Zurich: www.myswissalps.com/hiking/zurich.

Zermatt is a bit further from Interlaken, as it is not part of the Jungfrau region. It is doable as a day trip, the fastest route is 2:14 mins, one way. For the details please see the timetable.

At www.myswissalps.com/jungfrauregion/activities you can find recommended paragliding and sky diving companies. Please use the filter ('Attraction type' and select 'Sport') to filter for the best results.

I recommend you the Swiss Travel Pass. You can use it in Switzerland, please find the validity map here: www.myswissalps.com/swisstravelpass/validity.

As you are traveling to Paris, check this one too, you might find it useful: www.myswissalps.com/traintickets/france.
