I will be solo in Switzerland and will probably buy a Swiss Travel Pass, although if the weather is fine I will be outdoors, not in museums. Alas, I will be in CH for six days, and the Pass only covers four continuous days.
I wish to do a good bit of scenic train riding as well as walking if weather permits. My proposed plan is:
Wed Oct 23: arrive BSL 10:45am, train to Luzern ( CHF 34). Sleep Luzern. Q: do Luzern hotels provide a card similar to the BaselCard?
Thurs Oct 24: Begin STP. trains by an interesting route to Wengen. sleep Wengen
Friday Oct 25: Explore Wengen, Schilthorn if weather permits. otherwise, Lake Thun, or day trip to Bern? Sleep Wengen.
Saturday Oct 26. Train(s) to Zermatt. Explore by foot if the weather permits.
Sunday Oct 27: Day 4 of STP. Head toward Montreux, riding scenic trains, from Zermatt to Montreux and thence toward Gruyere, Brice, etc.
And then I have a problem: Sleep where on October 27? The following day I will not have the STP, and I need to be at GVA airport by 7:00pm. I would like to be conservative on how much I spend for travel that day.
Does Geneva have the equivalent of a BaselCard? If so, I might go all the way to Geneva on Oct 27 and sleep there, spending Oct 28 exploring Geneva and the lake.
