phase 2 itinerary advice...

Refining our itinerary... (thanks to all who replied to my earlier post - it really helped!!!) This forum is amazing!

We'd love the advice of the forum on best itinerary for these stops given this flight information. Current plan: Arrive Zurich morning June 19. Leave very early July 4 (so planning an overnight on July 3 near Zurich airport). 2 adults, kids 11, 11 and 15 at the time of travel.

We will stay in these locations 3-4 days each: Luzern, Lausanne, Berner-Oberland, Zermatt

We'd like to have scenic train time getting from place to place but don't want to just spend a day on a train just for the train. I have done some research but I'm having trouble figuring out the scenic trains vs. regular train routes and when it is worth taking extra time for a scenic train as opposed to just making that a leg where we get from A to B as efficiently as we can. Would like to end on a high note in terms of awesome locations....

On your way to the Berner Oberland the regular train Lucerne to Interlaken through the Brunig Pass is the one you want to take as it is very scenic. So you would go to Lausanne after leaving the Berner Oberland and then Zermatt
