Please Help with Switzerland Rail Planning

Jump to last reply

My DH and I will be arriving in Zurich at 11:30 on May 16th. From there we want to go immediately to Grindelwald (connect in Interlaken) where we are staying at the Hotel Belvedere for two nights. Will do Jungfrau, etc. on these two days.

Then on Fri. May 18th we will embark on the next leg of the trip, from Interlaken to Montreux, staying at the Eden Palace hotel for one night. Saturday morn we will wake up (possibly visit Vevey market if it's not too far) and then intend to take the TGV to Paris.

Several questions: We want to take the Golden Pass train and know this can be broken up in two parts - is it worth doing the panoramic VIP seats for both segments of the trip or should we just do that for the Interlaken/Montreux portion of it? Also is it possible to travel directly from Zurich to Interlaken or will we have to connect somewhere?

Then on Saturday when we go to Paris, from which city is the best to get the TGV from Montreux? Lausanne??

Would getting a Swiss Pass be beneficial to us so that we can get 50% off our other excursions, or are we better off buying everything separately. As you can see we are only in the country about 3 1/2 days.
