Hi there,

Well it's in between walking and skiing season. Hence I'd pick a not too high-lying place. Could e.g. be Lausanne or Montreux for day2, allows a lake boat ride. Day3 Zermatt, as the Glacier Express is the most logical cross-country connection to Chur-St. Moritz. I would even stay 3 night at Moritz not Chur - also ob the Bernina route but much more scenic and nice than big-city Chur.

Hope it helps a bit,

It might be so, but then fallback is regional trains amongst the same route. You need 2-3 transfer then to reach Moritz from Zermatt.

All the best,

Use www.sbb.ch/en with origin, destination times and travel date. In your case e.g. Zermatt and St. Moritz. This will give you all options.

All the best,

I would go from Geneva to Zermatt for a couple of days.

On your way there, stop in Montreux and have a walk around.

Then from Zermatt go to one of the beautiful villages of Engadin, like Guarda or stay chur, which I personally find nicer that St. Moritz. From Chur you can go by train, or bus to many of these villages.

You must know that trains in Switzerland are like buses :) you can chose direct(er) trains to go fast from A to B, or take regional trains, stop on your way, let luggage in a locker, walk around etc.

Espcially with a pass you are totally free to board trains on will. ( remember some panorama trains need seat reservations especially in first class)

Start here:

www.swisstravelsystem.com/en/webkarte.html

Use this interactive map to get an idea of what you could do.

Then go to the sbb site or download the sbb app and get your itinerary..

I must also say that I prefer regional trains from let us the glacier express.

Yes, many train changes ( albeit very easy ones) but less crowded and you can get out and have a walk and catch the next train etc.

You can pack also a nice pick- nick and enjoy it in the train.

I hope this will help you to get started

Tak
