We are a married couple in the 40s traveling to Switzerland in June. We are looking forward to outdoor activities (some light day hiking). I am more adventurous, my wife less so. We are flying into Geneva at noon on the 19th, then taking the train to Montreaux for the night. Then off to the Jungfrau region - where to stay? How many nights?
From there to Zermatt for a couple of days...
then onto the Glacier Express to Chur (should we keep going?) then from Chur to Lucerne.
From Lucerne to Engelberg (for the day?) and up Mount Pilatus..
Then on 6/27 Lucerne to Zurich, fly home on the 28th...
Still working on what pass to get for the train... any ideas? I'm thinking of paying cash from Geneva to Montreux and from Lucerne to Zurich, then some pass for the rest.
Where to stay in the Jungfrau region? While we like hiking we would like to stay somewhere close to some things we can walk to as well, some sort of little town would be nice.
Should we get off the GE at Chur? Don't really want to spend the night there, from there it is doable to get to Lucerne without it being a LONG day. What passes make the GE free (even 2nd class)
Lucerne to Engelberg or from the Jungfrau region?
Any other ideas would be great. Thank you so much !
