3 days Switzerland suggestions - time crunch

Jump to last reply

I will be in Berner Oberland area for about 3 and half days. What are the most interesting and beautiful places to cover. I am also interested in Bern, riding the scenic trains and Geneva (possibly). Can this be done in 3 days. I trying to be in Paris by end of day 4.
In what sequence should this be done? Please help with logistics.

I am just trying to cover whatever were highlighted by Rick Steve - in a shorter time. Not much planning so far.

How do I reserve the front seats on panaromic trains on Golden pass?

Method 1
Day 1 : Arrive in Zurich in morning -- Go to Bern (half day) -- Go to Interlaken (boat rides etc on Lake Thun for half day),
Day 2 : Lauterbrennen valley & Jungfraujoch & hiking, Wengen, Murren
Day 3 : Lucerne for half day, last half (maybe lake Thun), Reichenbach falls
Day 4 : Early morning leave Interlaken, take scenic train to Montreux, go to Geneva (spend 2 hrs) and fly out afternoon from Geneva to Paris.

Method 2:
Day 1 : Zurich to Lucerne. Lake thun rest of day. Museums also
Day 2 : Lauterbrennen valley & Jungfraujoch & hiking
Day 3 : Bern (half day) & Lake Thun
Day 4 : Early morning leave Interlaken, take scenic train to Montreux, go to Geneva (spend 2 hrs) and fly out afternoon from Geneva to Paris.
