I am planning to visit Switzerland on October 19 for 6 nights with my wife and 2 kids (6 and10) I will be coming from Paris by train and can fly back either from Zurich/ Geneva or Milan. We are mainly interested in scenic views and want to cover both Glacier express and golden pass line. Appreciate any suggestion for itenary. This is our 1st time in Switzerland

Roughly your route will be:- Paris via BaselSBB to Lucerne. Then Golden Pass to Montreux, with chances to see the Castle of Chillon and the chocolate factory. Then up to Zermatt. Take Glacier Express the next day to St Moritz. Last day take train towards Zurich airport. Depending on your flight time, you can choose between Zurich City, airport and Winterthur. Winterthur has a science place for kids to explore. It is only 10 min to airport.

To add to bofosters itinerary: depending on the flight's departure time and the airline, you could also start your return journey to the airport from St. Moritz. There is an option to check in at the train station with several airlines, so you would not have to overnight once more in Zurich and you could travel to the airport hassle-free. See sbb.ch/en/…check-in-at-the-railstation.html - I do this whenever possible when I travel.
