Need help for a 3/4 day itinerary

Jump to last reply

My husband & I would be attending a conference in the first week of June in Lucerne. We are planning to arrive 4 days before that in Switzerland. We want to base ourselves in Interlaken for 3 nights before heading for the conference.
Is this a reasoanble itinerary?
Day 1 - Jungfraujoch / Murren
Day 2 - Grindelwald / Lauterbrunnen / Schilthorn
Day 3 - Zermatt

My questions are:
Should we drop zermatt completely? I put it only because it is 2.5 hr train trip from interlaken and seemed reasonable to cover within a day
Also is basing ourselves in Interlaken the best bet?
After the conference, we also have 2 days. Should we spend that in zurich or go elsewhere? I assume that there would be some time to see lucerne during the 3 days of conference. The flight into and out of switzerland is from zurich and cannot be changed.
Lastly, do we need a rail pass at all?
Many thanks
