Hi all,

We 03 adults are travelling from Paris to Lucerne by mid Nov and stay in Lucerne for 04 days .

Our plans are Mt Titlis and Jungfrau , as of now.

We will be arriving Lucerne around 15.25 .

Planned Itinenary

Day 01 -nil

Day 02 Mt Titlis

Day 03 Jungfrau

Day 04 Check out , but we have plenty of time as our flight is at 21.20 Hrs ,, Zurich airport.

which option would be better.

A consecutive travel pass card for 03 days or 04 days ( if day one included )? and explore the city on own ? .

Mt Titlis and Jungfrau package tours excluding accommodation ? In that case i don't need to buy a travel pass card .

Thanks for any suggestions and alteration if any .

Hi jagdishmn,

The Mount Titlis cableways do not operate from November 7 to 18. You'll find day trip packages on the Packages tab of our Titlis and Jungfraujoch pages.

Whether a Swiss Travel Pass is better than packages is a personal preference: guided trips with a fixed schedule versus more flexible trips you wil have to prepare for yourself.

Thanks for you inputs,, Arno .

I will plan to be in Lucerne after Nov 18 , and would go with the all inclusive packages of Titlis and Jungfraujoch .

what is it I will miss over the all inclusive packages and the swiss travel pass tour or viceversa ?

Hi jagddishmn-

Thanks. Day 1 will give you a chance to walk around Luzern a bit,but it gets dark early.

Sunset will be at 1641

Day 3 is possible, but it is a long day.

Check the timetable:

www.myswissalps.com/ti metable

Check out the first page instructions.

This map is useful, too:

map.search.ch/?pos=648864,161024&z=8

It is not worth the time and money to go up to the Jungfraujoch if it is cloudy, and all that you can see is the inside of the clouds.

Check the forecast...tourist info by track #1 in Luzern is very helpful, or check once you get to Interlaken, to see whether you should go in further, perhaps as far as Lauterbrunnen or Wengen, or, perhaps, all the way up.

Day 4 might be a contingency day.

Also, other contingencies-

There is a lot of useful material in the time table.

Enter any journey - start and destination, date, time.

You will get a list of four journeys.

Click on the "+" sign to the left of any one entry.

You will get a lot of details for that journey.

Use the footnotes to see intermediate stiops, and get a map of the journey.

You may need to uncheck some options with the map.

The map can show you a local street map near the stations at the start and finish.

Be careful with the posted fares. As noted on the instruction page, those are generally half - fares, because most Swiss have a half-fare card.
