Need advice quick for short stop in Switzerland! And swiss transfer qxs.

Jump to last reply

I'm in the middle of a 10 week trip through Europe with 2 kids (8 and 10). I planned everything in advance except for the upcoming week when we're supposed to visit Switzerland and Venice, each for 3 - 4 days. I left this open so I could be sure we'd be up for the short jaunt to Switzerland and to make sure the weather would be good enough to make it worthwhile. So, our departure from France is only a few days away and the good news is we still have the energy and the weather looks fantastic. The bad news is, I need to make decisions, fast!.

Questions...
Deciding between lauterbrunnen and zermatt: from what I read the scenery getting to and around jungfrau seems more diverse with more things to do whereas zermatt basically offers the view of the matterhorn. For that reason, I'm inclined to choose lauterbrunnen; however, it seems that it will be easier (i.e. fewer transfers) to get into and out of zermatt and that is a big factor for us after lugging our stuff around 7 cities in the past 6 weeks. Any opinions? Is the harder work to get to lauterbrunnen worth it for the scenery as compared to zermatt?? If we choose zermatt, is the scenery good en route from Geneva?

Also, since I didn't want to commit to this before leaving the states, I never ordered a swiss transfer ticket. I understand that I can't buy this in Switzerland. Does anyone know if I can buy it in person somewhere before leaving France? Also, with the transfer ticket, I know I have to take the shortest route possible. If there are several trains throughout the day but only 1 is direct, does that mean I have to take the direct one? What if I want to depart later in the day and have missed the direct route, can I still jump on one of the others or would I have to wait until the next day? Finally, does anyone know how far the transfer ticket will get me on my way to Venice? If there is a direct train available, would I have to go out of my way to use a border station instead?

Thanks for any information!
