Things to do
Trip to Jungfraujoch-Quite possibly Europe's most famous peak, Jungfraujoch has the highest railway station in Europe. Take the train up, through the Eiger and Monch mountains to the 'top of Europe'. With unbelievable panoramic views, Jungfraujoch has a weather station named 'The Sphinx', with restaurants, souvenir shops, viewing terraces and an ice palace as well.Head back to Interlaken for the night.
Zermatt-Village Tour-Think Toblerone. The Matterhorn, Switzerland's most iconic mountain, looms over this quaint Swiss town. Zermatt is that perfect traffic-free village with horse-drawn carriages and electric vehicles with distinct old-world charm around every corner. A nearly 2-hour journey would take you from Montreux to Zermatt. If you'd rather not attempt the gruelling trek up Matterhorn, make your way to the Matterhorn museum instead. Head past quaint chalets to Bahnhofstrasse, with its boutiques and restaurants for dinner with a view.
Lucerne - Interlaken on Golden Pass Line-Switzerland's most photographed railway line, the Golden Pass Line is as spectacular as its pictures, if not more. A serene scenic route that runs about 150 miles from Lake Geneva to Lucerne, you haven't un[travelled] Switzerland if you haven't been on this train. Look out for views of Lake Lucerne as you head towards the Brunig Pass and Mount Pilates.
Bernina Express to Saint Moritz-Take the Bernina Express train out to Tirano from Lugano today. Another mesmerizing journey, stunning landscape stays with you right through a little over two hours. Hop on a bus from Tirano on to St. Moritz.

Best time to visit June to September
Summer- No one goes to Switzerland without visiting the mountains and if that is on your itinerary, summers are the best time to experience it. July and August are best in terms of outdoor activities like hiking and cycling. Sightseeing is best done when the sun is the warmest in Switzerland. The shoulder months of late May and early October are perfect if you are looking for reasonable rates and fewer tourists.
Spring - April to May - Spring brings new life to the snow covered cities and the meadows show their brightest side of green. A good time for some short hikes and explore the outdoors.
Winters - November to March - Late October marks the beginning of winter and the mountain resorts get cheaper. This lasts only until early December. Christmas marks the peak period again for these resorts as the ski season begins and this lasts until early April.
How to reach
Zurich is the main airport of Switzerland though it's not the only international airport here. Geneva and Basel have important airports and are great for intra-country and intra-Europe travel. Though cost can be a factor.
Railways are the most preferred form of transport to get around in Switzerland. All major tourist spots in Switzerland are well connected by rail and they are quite frequent and relatively cheap as compared to air travel. Pristinely clean and orderly, Swiss rail is like nothing you have ever seen.
The roads are great for you to take a taxi or opt for a self-drive option. The connectivity by bus is also great in Switzerland.
