5 days in Bernese Oberland?

Jump to last reply

Hi travelers! I'm planning a 5 day trip around Switzerland prior to a commitment in Lucerne. I'm looking for some advice on the best way to spend these days wrapped around the 2 things I'd most like do do - see the Jungfraujoch and I love train travel.
Arrive Zurich in early July. My original plan was to get to Tirano, take the Bernina Express to St Moritz, then hop on the Glacier Express to Zermatt. Then go to Interlaken area for couple days and go up to Jungfraujoch. I'm thinking this is too aggressive for such a short time. May have to pass on the BEX, and from what I'm reading in this Switzerland forum, skip the GEX. Have been to Bern, Geneva, Lausanne, taken the Golden Pass train already.
If I concentrate my time in Bernese Oberland, best place for a base for day trips? Lakes, mountains and light hiking. Appreciate any feedback!
