Hello all - we are flying into ZURICH end of June and want to see the best of Switzerland in 4 days before we fly out from one of the cities in Switzerland to London
What do we have to see?
Glacier express?

Need some help and suggestions!

4 days = 3 nights, you don't have much time. That would be a maximum of 2 places. For q whirlwind vist i suggest:
1 night Luzern. Go there direct from Zürich airport (~70 minutes by train).
2 nights Jungfrau Region of Berner Oberland. Places to stay: Mürren, Lauterbrunnen, Wengen or Grindelwald. From Luzern you get here by train via the scenic Brünig pass line.
From there, train to your exit airport (Zürich or Geneva).

Zermatt is too far south for this short trip.
The Glacier Express runs east-west through the Alps between Zermatt and Chur or St Moritz. Unless you incorporate it as part of a tour, it is not convenient.

Thanks so much for your response!
We have decided to add 2 more days to the trip, so now we have 6 days..
Based on your last reply, what else can we do ?
Flying into ZURICH and flying out of Geneva/Zurich
