3.5 days Itinerary in Switzerland

Jump to last reply

Me and my wife will have about 3 and a half days to tour Switzerland, in and out Geneva from June 3 (1300) till June 7 (1300).

Given the short duration, we wish to take the Glacier Express and enjoy some typical swiss village landscape in Bernese Oberland.

Our planned itinerary as follow:
June 3 : Half day tour of Montreux (sleep Montreux)
June 4 : Montreau - Brig (GEX) - Chur - Bern (sleep Bern)
June 5 - Bern (half day tour) - Lauterbrunnen (sleep Lauterbrunnen)
June 6 - tour Murren & Schilthorn (sleep Lauterbrunnen)
June 7 - Lauterbrunnen - Geneva Airport (flight 1500)

We are in the dilemma whether to do GEX as it is Summer (may not be the best time) and we will miss the Zermatt-Brig and Chur-St Moritz sections. We also wonder whether part of the panoramic train of Golden Pass and RegioExpress are good enough so that we do not spend a full long day in GEX. We can then use Bern as our base for day trips.

We really appreciate help and suggestions to refine our itinerary.

Many thanks.

Andy KL
