Hello,

I planned to make a 4 day short trip to Switzerland beginning from Zurich. I hope to cover Jungfrau, Lucerne and Zermatt. Can anyone advise if this is possible and how should I do this.?

Thanks

Annika

Hi Cheeese,

Thanks for joining MySwissAlps! It's certainly possible if you don't mind to switch towns/hotel every day.You can start with a day in Lucerne, take the Golden Pass line to Interlaken or a nearby town and visit Jungfraujoch. Finally proceed to Zermatt. You can also do it the other way round, depending on your arrival/departure time. A 4-day Swiss Travel Pass would cover your trips.

Please see the above links and the planning tips to get started.

Thanks Annika. However I understood that the Golden Pass Line is not available till early December. Is there other way to move from Lucerne to Zematt?

Hi cheeese,

The Golden Pass line is always operational. There are construction works in November (discussed here), but there's a replacement bus for that section, so no problem to travel there. Where did you read it's not available? What's your exact travel date? You can check the timetable for that date to obtain details.

Sorry. I have mistaken. It is the Glacier Express that is not available. I planned to reached Zurich on 20 Nov.

You are right about the Glacier Express. The line never closes however. You can also take the regular trains if you like: myswissalps.com/glacie rexpress.
