Day trips from Zermatt, Gstaad and Lucerne

Jump to last reply

I essentially posted this same message in response to a question about my plans given my own question about upgrading from 2nd to 1st class on a Swiss train pass but thought I might get a bit more response by asking this separately. Apologies to anyone who is now reading it twice.

Here's the plan. In late January we fly into Zurich, train to Zermatt for 5 days from whence we plan to repeat day trips we took there 2 years ago--Brig, Sierre, Sion. Happy to hear of any other suggestions for day trips from Zermatt for one more day there.

Then we train from Zermatt to Gstaad (our son is a skier) from whence we plan to take day trips to Montreaux/Vevey, possibly Thun and Oberhofen, and Chateau d'Oex and Gruyeres--again other recs for day trips very welcome as well as places to combine into a single day of tripping.

From Gstaad we'll train to Lucerne for 2 nights before a last train back to Zurich and home from there. Two years ago when we spent 6 days in Lucerne, we did day trips to Bern, Basel, St. Gallen, Einseldeln with a stop at Rapperswill on return to Lucerne. I'm now searching for a possible day trip for one of our two days in Lucerne this year. Looking at Zug, Schwyz, Olten, Aarau, maybe Solothurn--any combination of the above and/or others.

Would really appreciate recommendations and comments on some of the places I'm already considering and especially anything I've overlooked. Thanks for any help on this. We sometimes find that the places we go because they are all that''s "left" to do in an area can be the best places to see. Hoping for some gems on this trip.
