Switzerland 4 days for family

Jump to last reply

Dear Fodorites
We are visiting Switzerland (my parents 60+, wife and 3 year old)
in the second week of August.
We are staying at Lauterbrunnen for the whole trip.
We arrive Aug 5 12h16 GENEVA CORNAVIN and leave from Zurich Aug 8 21:00 hours.

We are more interested in natural beauty.
I have just chalked out a tentative itinerary and put it here for the expert

Day1: Geneva (fountain) -> Montreux -> Interlaken -> Lauterbrunnen (Golden Pass)

Day2: LauterBrunnen-> Interlaken -> Thun (+boat trip)
+ in around Lauterbrunnen

Day3: Lauterbrunnen-> Sclithorn or Zermat?

Day4: Lauterbrunnen-> Lucerne (+boat trip) -> Zurich

I am thinking of buying Swiss 4day rail pass and want to travel mostly
on the legs that are covered by it .The calculations show its not that worth
or am I missing some thing?
Any other suggested itinerary will be more than welcome.

Thanks and regards
