Zurich to Geneva via Lausanne using SBB Day Pass

Hi all
We got an SBB Day pass whereby we can use all public transport/trains/trams across CH for free. I'd like to get as much use out of it as possible.

Initially thinking to go tomorrow from Zurich to Geneva with a stop for lunch in Lausanne.

Are there any other trains in the area that we should think about to get the most out of our pass? Maybe some of those specially branded trains that go up the mountains? Not sure what they're called exactly - just saw they look different on the tourist brochures..!

Any suggestions appreciated, cheers!

You can make a detour via Montreux- Visp-Bern back to Zurich.

Walk at the other side of lake geneva (in montreux), watch the awesome
mountains passing by when travelling to visp, change trains in visp, walk around the city of bern and return to zurich.

Re: Zurich to Geneva via Lausanne using SBB Day Pass

I am also planning a similar trip with a visitor this Sunday. At the moment the idea is to do to Lake of Luzern with a trip up the Rigi and then one on the other side of the lake to Seelisberg. Otherwise Interlaken-Thun. Geneva and Lausanne are too far away for me.
