Thanks a lot first of all for posting some wonderful answers to the posts here and offering some real valuable help.
I am planning for a trip along with my family and parents to Switzerland (unfortunately for just 4 days :( ) from Mach 31 - April 3. I understand that there is not much we can see but i have just worked out on visiting a few places. Here's my itenary. I really appreciate any feedback/suggestions on this:
Leave from Paris to Geneva (we need to board TGV Lyria at 8:11 am from PARIS GARE DE LYON to 11:27 GENEVA CORNAVIN ). We will take another train from Geneva to interlaken West. When we reach Interlaken, we will spend time going around the town, going for boating in Lake Thun/Brienz. We can see the cuckoo clocks, watches, souvenirs here itself in the town.
We will board the train from Interlaken OST railway station to Lauterbrunnen/Wengen to Jungfaujoch. We will spend the day in Jungfraujoch and then come back from Jungfraujoch to Grindelwald back to Interlaken
We will travel at 7 am from Interlaken to Lucerne with the Golden Pass and reach Lucerne at 9:30 am. We will check in to the hotel. We will visit the following places in Luzerne:
10:30 am - 3 pm: We will visit Transport museum (not the planetarium or the filmtheatre). From the hotel, we will take a train or bus to the museum stop - Luzern Verkehrshaus
4:12 pm - 6:41 pm: Boat trip from Luzern-Vitznau and back
Take the early morning 8:06 am train from Luzern-->Engelberg. Reach Engelberg at 8:53 am. From Engelberg, we will take the first cable car from Engelberg-->Trubsee (20 minutes), second cable car from Trubsee-->Stand (20 minutes) and then the last rotair (80-person revolving gondola) from Stand-->Mt. Titlis (5 minutes). We should reach by 10:00 or 10:30 in Mt. Titlis. We will have a stroll, see whether any snow activities are possible, take pictures, have lunch and try to come back by 4 pm or 5 pm to Lucerne. If time permits, we will see Lion Monument and Chappel Bridge in the evening in Lucerne. After that, we will check out from the hotel and take late-evening/night train to Zurich
We will depart from Zurich to Bangalore
For travelling, i am planning to go for a 4 day Swiss Pass and for my kid (he would be around 5 years 9 months) on the day of travel, i guess the STS Family card will be good.
Look forward to your kind suggestions. Thanks a lot for your time and attention!
