My plans for Switzerland

Jump to last reply

I will be entering Switzerland after 3 weeks in Italy - Milan to Spiez.

After much research on this site and reading Fodor's Switzerland (from the library) etc I think have put together a plan for my trip to Switzerland. My interests are art, museums, scenery and people watching, eating and drinking. Because of some physical limitations train travel is ideal for me - an interesting rest after art etc.. I also need a base whereby I do not have to battle often with luggage,

I think I shall base myself in Spiez. From Spiez I would be able to travel to Winterthur, Zurich, Berner Oberland, Basel, Laussane, Geneva, Bern, Luzern. When I leave Spiez I hope to use baggage service to Locarno. I believe I can travel to Luzern, William Tell Express to Locarno - relax for a few days. Baggage service to Chur. Train Locarno to Lugano, Palm Express to St Moritz. Train to Chur. Bernina Express the next day. Exit Switzerland from Tirano to Milano. Interesting that I suddenly become a senior citizen on train travel as I exit Switzerland (International Travel). Are they trying to get rid of me? I shall be in Zwitzerland for 21 days in June.
I hope then to spend a couple of days in Milan so I can commute to Stressa for a boat tour.
Then from Milano to Rome to fly home.
I have a few questions however- can anyone could help please?

I've done my spreadsheeting and I believe the Swiss Pass is the way to go for me. If I'm understanding Swiss Pass correctly Consecutive Pass wil allow me to travel daily? Can anyone confirm this for me please?

Also what temperature range will there be in Switzerland at that time?

I also had an ambition to get to Disentis/Muster by train, back to Andermatt and back to Interlaken via bus from Meiringen. I found I could get to Disentis/Muster on regular train but could not find a way back to Andermatt. Glacier Express runs through at an appropriate time but it's my understanding that it does not stop at Disentis/Muster and it appears there is no bus at that time from Disentis/Muster to Andermatt/Meiringen. Does anyone know anything about this please?

Hoping all those travelling are having a wonderful time and the rest of us have success with our planning.
Thanks all
