8 nights Geneva to Zurich itinerary ideas

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone. My wife and I are heading to Switzerland in October for 8 nights. We fly into Geneva and out of Zurich and want to see plenty in between. We want to do some of the amazing train trips to take in the scenery. We enjoy walking and so will do some easy hikes but nothing too strenuous. I am currently trying to work out where to stay each night and I am thinking something along the lines of:

1 night Geneva
1 night Montreux
1 night Zermatt
2 nights Lauterbrunnen or Wengen
2 nights Lucerne
1 night Zurich

If you have any thoughts on the itinerary, or can provide any help with the following, it would be very much appreciated:
Is it worth spending the first night in Geneva, or would two nights in Montreux be better?
Is Zermatt worthwhile for 1 night, or should we skip it and spend an extra night in the Jungfrau region?
I have looked at other forum posts for specific information about what to do in each place, but if you have any absolutely must-do day trips or train rides worth, please let me know.
