Switzerland details

I've fallen behind in my daily writing - as I write this now, I'm going on day 3 in Switzerland, so I still have 1 day of Hallstatt, 4 days of Munich, 2 days of Bavaria, and 2 days in Switzerland to get caught up - but I still have to plan for where I'm going more than write about where I've been.  So here's the plan for Switzerland.

Mon Oct 24 (Day 38) Lucerne
  • 0551-1249 Train from Fussen to Lucerne
  • 1400-1900 city walk 

Tues Oct 25 (Day 39) Bern
  • 1000-1100 train from Luzern to Bern
  • 1200-1900 city walk 

Wed Oct 26 (Day 40) Berner Oberlander
  • 1034-1052 Train from Bern to Thun
  • 1133-1345 BLS boat ride from Thun to Interlaken West
  • 1500-1900 TBD 

Thu Oct 27 (Day 41) Berner Oberlander
  • 0800-1600 Jungfrau tour

Fri Oct 28 (Day 42) Berner Oberlander
  • 0752-0955 Train from Interlaken West to Lauterbrunnen, followed by Cogwheel train to Mürren, followed by cable-car ride to Schilthorn
  • 1000-1600 Schilthorn
  • 1600-1730 cable car ride to Mürren, stop for a while there
  • 1730-2000 cogwheel train to Lauterbrunnen, stop for a while and have dinner
  • 2033-2103 train to Interlaken West
 Sat Oct 29 (Day 43) Zermatt
  • 0908-1114 train to Zermatt
  • 1200-1900 R&R, possible Gornergrat mountain train
 Sun Oct 30 (Day 44) Glacier Express to St Moritz
  • 1013-1742 Glacier Express
  • 1800 meet Romeo’s mom for transport to hotel 
 Mon Oct 31 (Day 45)
  • 0702 leave for Milan
I wanted to stay out in the Swiss countryside, but with the things that I wanted to do all leaving from Interlaken, it just made more sense.

The Glacier Express is a 7-1/2 hour train ride that goes through the mountains (figuratively and literally), tunnels, and bridges in the Swiss Alps, from Zermatt in the southwest to St Moritz in the southeast.
