Definitely do train journeys whilst you are there. Interlaken is fabulous. Can catch the train up to Jungfrau. The Visit Switzerland website is good.

Stop off in the Bernese Oberland in between - Wengen, Grindelwald, Kandersteg - are all good all rounder resorts with mountain trains, cafes, walks for all levels , rugged scenery etc. also Lucerne is worth a stop - visit Engelberg if you want to see the glacier and sled, Mount Pilatus for the views and dry toboggan run, Rigi, transport museum.

You can buy train passes for specific time spans or so many journeys within a time span, which can save money overall and give discounts on some of the privately owned mountain train and lift systems, like the Jungfrau railway. Sbb is the national train operator and runs very efficiently.
