Hello,

I am planning an intinerary for 4-5 days for a family of 5 adults (2 parents, 3 young adults ages 26,24,18)

My plan so far is:

1. London to Zurich airport and go Schauffheusen to see the rhine falls and back to zurich.

2nd day- spend the day in zurich and go Mount Titlis then take train to Lucerne.

3rd- boat cruise in lake lucerne, explore town and then...

considering what is the best route to Jungfrau?

And from here I would like to end in Geneva and then depart geneva airport to London again.

we will be taking train throughout the trip... Is this a feasible itinerary and should we get swiss rail passes?

thank you for your help in advance!

Hi Amistry,

A similar question was just answered in this topic, does this help you too? In case of 4 days, a 4-day Swiss Saver Pass would be an option for the adults and 26 year old, and a 4-day Swiss Youth Pass for the 18 and 24 year olds.

All about the Jungfrau can be found here: www.myswissalps.com/jungfraujoch

Hi arno...thank you very much for your prompt reply!

I will look up the 4 day swiss pass and get the details.

Is the plan I have written feasible for a 4 or 5 day trip in switzerland. Also is it worth going from jungfrau to geneva and back to london or should I just go back to zurich airport after jungfrau?

Hi Amestry,

Sure, just go to our Swiss Pass page and you can learn all about it there. The Golden Pass line is a great way to travel from the Jungfrau region to Geneva (via Montreux), so yes, that's a good plan.

Hi arno,

I am planning to go from zurich to mount titlis and then straight to lucerne...is carrying luggage to mountain excursions going to prove some difficulty?

Hi Amistry,

I would not take it up the mountain. It can be done but it's really uncomfortable. Just take along a small backpack and keep the rest of your luggage in your hotel or in a locker. This page has more information: www.myswissalps.com/train/practical/luggage

Kind regards,

Annika

Thankyou for your reply annika...ive looked up the lockers at train stations ..seems like a good idea!

Is it worth seeing mount titlis and mount jungfrau?

If so what is the best way to go from luzerne to jungfrau?

Should i stay one night at interlaken and then in the morning travel to jungfrau ( grindelwald)?

Hi Amistry,

I think it's worth seeing both, but you can best visit our pages about these mountain trips and decide yourself.

You best visit any mountain top, including the Jungfraujoch, on a clear day. Check the weather forecast the evening before and even the same morning, and then decide whether you go up. If you're in Interlaken, the big advantage is that you'll be up there much quicker, so even a few hours of clear sky in the morning would be sufficient for a visit. Hotels near the rail station are listed here.
