Backpack Luggage Travel
I’d like to travel from Zurich to Interlaken to Munich & back (by train). Any suggestions?

I’m an American leaving NYC to Zurich for a 7-day vacation. I’ll be traveling by myself with 1 piece of luggage & a backpack. I’m trying to plan a route from Zurich to Interlaken to Munich (and back). Do you think I can do this in 7 days? Any suggestions? I’d like to do by train & just trying to figure out how to order tickets, hotel rooms, etc.

Thanks for any tips or insight.

You’re about to see one of the most beautiful regions of Europe. The train ride to Interlaken is gorgeous. Check Swiss Rail’s Web site, www.sbb.ch, for train schedules and trip lengths. I believe you can also buy your tix online from the site. Be sure to sit upstairs on the double-decker train to see the view. Also check the site for the trains from Interlaken to Munich. You will probably have to disembark, take a ferry across the Bodensee, then pick up a train to Munich in Friedrichshafen on the German side. It sounds a little intimidating but it’s real easy, and the trains and ferries are timed so you have plenty of time for transfers. Depending on your budget, I always stay at Balmer’s Herberge hostel in Interlaken. They have a chalet next to the youth hostel for older travelers. I have also stayed at the Chalet Hotel Oberland in Interlaken and enjoyed it very much. Balmer’s is more personable, though.
