Hi, Arno, thanks for the tips!
It´s really a demanding task planning for only 10/11 days. :-)
We were thinking differently but now we´ll really consider your ideas.
Here is what we were thinking of doing before your tips:
Day 1 Oct, 17th - Arrival in Geneve
Day 2 Oct 18th - Boat trip to Lausanne and Montreux
Day 3 Oct 19th - Interlaken
Day 4 Oct 20th - Jungfrauhof
Day 5 Oct 21st - Day trip to Bern (not sure if it worths the trip)
Day 6 Oct 21nd - Zermatt
Day 7 Oct 23rd - Zermatt
Day 8 Oct 24th - Glacier Express to St Moritz
Day 9 Oct 25th - St Moritz (day trip)
Day 10 Oct 26th - Zurich
Day 11 Oct 27th - Zurich
Day 12 will be leaving Zurich 6.00am.
Could you please tell me what would you change in this itinerary? Me and my wife have never skied before and we´d love spending at least one day having our first lesson. I wonder
if that would also be possible at the Jungfrauhof this time of the year...
Thank you. :-)
Arno said: Hi Claudio and Renata,
Any number of days is indeed not enough to cover the whole of Switzerland ;-) There's so much to see and do. I think it's good to go to Zermatt, as you want to ski and most ski slopes will not open until early December. You can ski in Zermatt (Klein Matterhorn) all year round though.
After that, you can take the Glacier Express to St. Moritz and do a couple of day trips from there. Next, you could take the train to Tirano (Bernina Express route), the bus to Lugano and the train to Lucerne. Lucerne would then be your third base. You can do some boat trips on the lake from there.
The timetable provides details about the traveling times.
Just a suggestion, I hope it's a start.
