- following the suggested route of visiting Broc factory and Gruyeres, enroute to Wengen on the same day, the train connections as per the SBB site are: arrival from Gruyer to Montbovon at 4.20pm and Golden pass line train leaving at 4,28pm from Montbovon. Is it possible to make this connection? If not the earlier train is 1 hour before. Is bus an option? A similar short transit time when going from Thun to Interlaken Ost to get the golden pass line to Lucerne. I

Are there some goldenpass line trains (the one starting at 3.45pm on montreux to be exact) not available on the internet for seat reservation. do we have to reserve seats only once we get to geneva?

- Lavaux trails: im looking at may be a 2 hr trail/ 2.1/2 maximum with a 4/6year old who are good walkers. Was thinking of starting in Cully and walking to Lutry. (can include a 1 hr lavoux panaroma trip from cully towards Dézaley as well if recomended to reduce the walking for the kids) Spending a bit of time exploring the village and taking the boat back to montreux. Almost all notes are on walking from lutry to cully instead of the reverse. Is there a reason for this – climb vs going downhill? how hilly is this hike?

- Came across some foderites who had used a bus trf company call 'student Agency' which does trf from Cesky krumlov for 7.5 Euro a head. (total 30 euro)Seems a good deal opposed to the 140 euro for private trf. Any experience with them?

- Salzburg – hiring a car and driving via st gilen, wolfgang to Hallstatt for a day trip on the second day in Salzburg. Should we book a car now or can we get one once we get to Salzburg..we are ok with manual or auto car.

- Vienna, train to Melk, boat to durnstein and train back - is this a full or half trip? is it worth sacrificing a day out of the 21/2 we have in vienna.

- if we have extra time in montreux is it worth taking the trip to Rochers de Naye . it seems best with snow scenery?.

so looking forward to the trip....thnx foderites for all the excellent advise received in helping to plan this trip!!
