I'm traveling to Switzerland from 10-18 August with my wife and mother. Mom is pretty spry and up for long fairly flat walks, but not any steep hiking. We will be traveling by train, no car. Our tentative plan is:
Fly into Zurich on Saturday 10 August, and relocate to Lucerne for a couple of nights to visit Mt. Pilatus and that area
Relocate to Grindelwald (or Murren or Wengen or Lauterbrunnen) for three nights to visit First / Jungfraujoch / etc
Head to Turin for two or three nights, flying out on Sunday the 18th
My questions - first, is that a reasonable starting point? I haven't started investigating all the various rail passes and whatnot - I wanted to have a good skeleton of an itinerary first.
Second, any recommendations among Grindelwald / Murren / Wengen / Lauterbrunnen? Grindelwald seemed to have the most easily accessible walks, but I know it's not car-free like some of the others.
Finally, are there nice scenic trains from Grindelwald to Turin? Or to Milan, as I think Milan might have more connections.
Thanks for any help!
