2.5 days itinerary. Need help in planning

Jump to last reply

Folks, my wife and I are making a 2 days (theoretically 2.5 days) stop over in Switzerland on October 1-3. We are flying in Geneva (October 1st evening) and fly out from Basel (October 3rd evening). Our main interest are in (1) Natural scenic places, (2) Alpine experience, (3) Old town sight-seeing. I tried to steal some ideas from few recent posts, but still gaps and doubts are there.
We will be travelling around by trains/buses or cable cars, wherever necessary. Lauterbrunnen can be base for all 3 nights or I can split, if necessary.

1st Day: (Good/Sunny Weather) Lauterbrunnen - Grutchalp - Murren - Schilthorn cable car station - Birg - Schilthorn. While coming back - Schilthorn - Birg - Trümmelbach Fall - Lauterbrunnen

1st Day: (Cloudy/bad Weather) Lauterbrunnen - Grutchalp - Murren - Gimmelwald - Birg - cable car to Stechelberg - Trümmelbach Fall - Lauterbrunnen

2nd Day:

3rd Day: Lauterbrunnen - Lake Spiez/Thun - brief visit of Oberhofen Castle - We have to reach Mulhouse/Basel (Airport) by 5 PM.

Few questions -
a) Is my first day ok ? We may not stop at all places, I mentioned them as route. But definitely would give some time to Murren and Trümmelbach Fall. Any comment on this day ?
b) What should we see on second day ? There may be multiple options like Lucerne or another post I read, First, Bachalpsee, Faulhorn, Bussalp. But I am not sure, need help here.
c) Anything you would suggest ?

Many Thanks !!!
