Two Week Switzerland Trip - September 2014 - Critique Please

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a two week trip to Switzerland in September of this year. We will have 14 nights, one of which will be flying. My initial plan was to fly in and out of Zurich. However, I discovered that an open jaw into Zurich and out of Geneva will only be about $30 more expensive (based on current flight costs). We like nature, hiking, villages and good food, but aren't into glitz. We will most likely have a 15 day Swiss Pass, but that will be determined once I have a firmer plan and can run the numbers for all the options. Please critique our initial itinerary which is loosely based on a two week trip recommended by Rick Steves. Some of the plans may not be feasible, but I think for the most part this should work.

Day 1 - Fly
Day 2 - Arrive in Zurich around 8:30 AM; sightseeing and lunch in Zurich. Train to Appenzell for one night.
Day 3 - Morning in Appenzell; train to St. Gallen to visit Stiftsbibliothek. Train to Lucerne for two nights.
Day 4 - Mt. Pilatus Circle; Lion Monument. Sleep Lucerne.
Day 5 - Late morning departure on Wilhelm Tell Express to Lugano for two nights
Day 6 - Day trip to Bellizona and possibly Locarno and/or Ascona. Sleep Lugano.
Day 7 - 10 AM Bernina bus to Tirano to pick up Bernina Express to Pontresina. Sleep Pontresina.
Day 8 - Depart at 9 or 10 AM on Glacier Express for Zermatt. Sleep Zermatt.
Day 9 - Morning in Zermatt; train to Lauterbrunnen for 4 nights. Sleep Lauterbrunnen.
Day 10 - Jungfraujoch, Kleine Scheidegg, Aletsch Glacier; Wengen. Sleep Lauterbrunnen.
Day 11 - Train to Interlaken for St. Beatus Caves in AM; Train to Bern PM. Back to sleep in Lauterbrunnen.
Day 12 - Schilthorn with breakfast at Piz Gloria; Gimmelwald and Murren. Sleep in Lauterbrunnen.
Day 13 - Train to Interlaken for journey on Golden Pass route to Montreux; walk to Chillon; on to Geneva for two nights.
