14 days in Switzerland by rail

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to Switzerland in Sep.We want to see as much as possible and want to travel on as many scenic rail routes as possible. We will fly in and out of Zurich. Have come up with an itinerary but not sure if this will work or if we will spend the correct amount of time in each place.
From Zurich airport by train to Lucerne for 4 nights, to Interlaken area for 2 nights taking in Jungfraujoch. Train to Montreux 2nights, train to Zernatt 2 nights. Glacier Express to St Moritz for 3 nights taking Bernina express to Tirano and back to St Moritz. Train to Chur for 1 night on way back to Zurich airport for mid day flight.
Any suggestions and comments would be welcome.
Does this cover the best of Switzerland?
Are we trying to do too much and will be get bored of trains?
Is there anything we should add or miss out?
Thanks
