Hi

I am planning on visiting Switzerland next spring. I've been browsing all the interesting places in Swiss and list it all down. It turn up that most of it a train tours. I am planning to go on Jungfraujoch Tour, Bernina Express and Goldenpass + Swiss choc train during our limited 3 days stay in Switzerland before heading to Paris by train. I would like to have your opinion on the best value for money passes for me to have all that tours. is it enough the 3 days stay in Swiss or i need longer stay?

I also would like to know where is the best place for our stay in Swiss since i would travel by foot or public transport

I also would like to know about Rheinfall. How far to go to see the Rheinfall and how long will it take?Is it a worth place to visit especially during Spring?

Thank you so much

Annika

Hello izaidah82, thanks for joining us!

The plans you've listed are too much for 3 days. Especially the Bernina Express is way off, and it would be hard to include in a 3 day itinerary. Some of your plans would be doable. You could start in Zurich and visit the Rhine Falls, and move on to Lucerne and Interlaken the same day. The next day you'd make a morning excursion to the Jungfraujoch and head for Montreux, spending your last day on the Chocolate Train and a trip to Geneva for your outbound journey to Paris. This is a very strict travel scheme though, and to me it would be a bit too much. So if you manage to arrange for a longer stay, that's certainly preferable. Otherwise I'd advise to cut down on the attractions.

These general planning tips and the timetable can be of help. You may also like to take a look at some of our sample itineraries. The other pages I linked to provide more information on the day trips and towns along the way.
