I wouldn't bother for the exposed films: I also never had problems with the airport x-ray checks. If you start your trips in the region of St.Gallen and use the trains for your excursions I may give you some personal known suggestions:
itself: I suppose you know the city already. Worth a few days of shooting
Trip St.Gallen - Lucern with the Voralpen-Express
. Many panoramic views on this track. Be prepared for the highest viaduct in Switzerland. The connection runs the whole day every hour in both directions.
Make a stop at Rapperswil
: Big castle
on top of the historic district with a beautiful view over the lake of Zurich or take a local train to Hurden village and walk back the pilgrim trail back to Rapperswil over the wooden bridge
Plan the whole day for Lucern
: The historic city
is extensive and you will burn for sure a few rolls of 120 film.
Another trip could be to Constance
: Spend a day in the historic districts
and at the nice lake.
When do you plan to be here in Switzerland?
