Grindelwald to Leukerbad

1. Is there any route that I can ride Glacier Express during the journey from Grindelwald to Leukerbad?

2. Golden Pass and Glacier Express, which one nicer?

1. No.

2. They are not comparable. You need to look at a map. Decide which routes you wish to travel, where you will stay at the start and end and how much time you wish to spend on the train(s).

From a strictly "train" point of view I like version 2. Though I would not go to Leukerbad at all - it isn't a particularly nice mountain village. And I would not spend an overnight in Bern -- make a day trip to Bern from Grindelwald instead and then travel to ZRH airport via Luzern on the Goldenpass line. Then you get BOTH your scenic train rides in.

Getting better! But I suggest on day 3 you go from Brig to Grindelwald via Spiez and Interlaken Ost. Settle into your hotel in Grindelwald. Stay there until Day 7. And make a day trip to Bern during the time you are in Grindelwald. It is an easy day trip. You can see everything there is to see in Bern in 6 hours. And you save moving hotels another time...
