Hi starfruit, sure, will be happy to share. However, thought you might want to know that my itinerary is planned around the use of the 15-day Swiss Pass, ie not self-driving trip. Would this still be of interest to you ? If yes, I'll email you my itinerary.

Oops, so sorry sisi, the itinerary has been sent to you now. About the air tickets, I've booked it direct from KLM (cheapest I can find), at their internet promotion price. And yeah, I booked the accomodation myself after surfing around for lodgings that are within my budget and then corresponded directly with the B&B and Hotel. Have booked all the accomodation for the 3 places that we are setting up base at.

Hi precious02, you've got mail.

Actually, if not for work schedule, my initial preference was to go in early-mid Sep as I've always prefer Autumn to Summer. From what I've read, the weather in Switzerland can be pretty eratic even during summer, but probably more so towards end Sep. However, I've also read travellers' account of warm and pleasant weather in Sep, so you never know...

Hi precious_02, the tickets are S$2500 for 2 persons, inclusive of taxes. I'm not quite sure, but believe there should be some airlines that fly direct to Zurich. Not for KLM though...

HI Swarna, I just returned from Switzerland. It's a beautiful country. I travelled around using the Swiss 8D pass and it is absolutely simple!
My itinerary is as follows:

2 nights in Interlaken:
1st day, walk around Interlaken and took a half day trip to Bern
2nd day, Went to Wengen, Kleine Scheidegg, Jungfrau (Top of Europe) and back to Interlaken via Grindelwald.
Check out http://www.jungfraubahn.ch/en/DesktopDefault.aspx

2 nights Zermatt: Took the Gornergrat rail

Took the Glacier Express to St Moritz
2 nights in St Moritz

Then to Zurich

great thanks alot for that info! little may, can i know how much you had to spend for the trip and how many days did you spend there?

Hi Swarna,
We spent about $6.5k for two excluding airtickets and we spent 7 nights in Switzerland and 2 nights in Milan.
Our expenditure is considered on the high side as we bought 1st class train tickets instead of 2nd class. Accommodation was also expensive as we stayed at 3 different ski resorts during the winter season and we chose 4-star accommodation. Depending on what your budget is, I'm sure you can get your trip planned.
Let me know if you have a budget and I can probably plan something for you.
