Switzerland - Matterhorm and Golden Pass advice

Jump to last reply

It has been a bit since I asked my initial questions about my trip and you have all been so helpful. Now that I am about a week away, I have a few more questions.

(1) I will be traveling from Zurich to Montreux throughout the day on Monday 29 May. I am likely making this a longer trip than it needs to be, but my plan is Zurich to Luzern to Interlaken to Zseisimmen to Montreux. I did book VIP seats on the last portion as that sounded like the most unique aspect, and so I have all day to get to Zseisimmen by the 18:25 train (hoping to even catch a little sunset towards the end of the trip). This will be our 3rd day in Europe, so if the kids (11 and 9) are exhausted and sleep in, I know I can get to Interlaken via Bern more quickly. If we are awake early, could you rank Zurich, Luzern, Interlaken and Zseisimmen in terms of where you would want to spend a few hours. Stretch our legs, grab a bite to eat, with great scenery (whether that be walking around a town, or strolling along a lake). I am not planning on hitting museums or the like and guess I will have the time to spend a bit of time in at least two of these places.

(2) Depending on the weather and if we are just tired of trains after a long day Monday, we may head to the Matterhorn from Vevey on Tuesday. My understanding is you travel via train to Visp, and then take some type of bus/trolley into town? I also read about the Gornergrat, but I can't picture how this all fits together. Can someone walk me through this? We would be up for walking around/mild hiking, but we aren't looking to ski/strenuous hike. Would you recommend eating in Zermatt or back in Visp? I am happy to take any recommendations you may have. Nothing too expensive, but would love a place for a glass of wine, light meal and views. Also - is it important to get there first thing in the morning, or are crowds pretty consistent throughout the day? I wasn't sure if we could visit Chateau de Chillon before heading to Visp? or if that would push our day too late?

(3) How much time does a visit to Chateau de Chillon generally take? With our free time in the area, we would like to wander Vevey, see the Chateau, and possibly walk a bit along the lake. Anything else for a more relaxing day not spent on trains.

Thank you - I cannot believe this trip I have been planning for so long is finally here.
