Hello admins and friends from the forum,
A friend and I will go to Switzerland, this amazing country in Early April (2-6April, Tentative) during the excange semester. We would like to get some advice about our itinerary.
Day 1: Munich to Zurich by MeinFernBusin the early morning. Hang around in Zurich for the afternoon. Go to Rhine Falls for sunset. stay in Zurich/ Schaffhausen for a night(Which is better?)
Day2: Train from Zurich/Schaffhausen to Luzern by train. Hang Around in Luzern, plus boat trip and musuems. Stay overnight in Luzern.
Day3: Luzern to Titlis for a day. Stay overnight in Luzern.
Day4: Luzern to Interlaken (Golden Express). Interlaken to Jungfrau. Spend a day in Jungfrau + Grindelwald. Hostel in Interlaken.
Day5: Interlaken to First. Simply a hiking day. Overnight train from Interlaken to Amsterdam.
(Day4 and 5 can be swapped, depending on the weather of Jungfrau)
(We will buy a 4-Day Travel Pass valid from Day2-5)
As we are the first time travelling to Swiss, we have some questions about the plan.
Q1: Is the whole plan feasible? Would Day1 and 4 be too hectic?
Q2: Will the shops close during this Easter period? I am so afraid we will have nothing to shop around/ museum are closed!
Q3: As we are going between summer and winter, what will the weather be in April? More winter or summer like?
Q4: Seems some museums or transportation are closed in April (eg Grindelwald one til 6 Apr, thanks god!). I am afraid I miss some of them. Would you guys remind me if I mention it in the itinerary? thank you!
Q5: About using the pass. For Day5, do I need to buy 2 train tickets (Interlaken to Basel, Basel to Amsterdam) seperately in order to enjoy the swiss pass free treat for the first journey to Basel? or simply buy one ticket only and I can have a free price for the part in Switzerland?
Q6: What is the hours of validity each day for swiss pass? (00:00 to next day 05:00?)
Q7: Is Swiss Pass 4 days a wise choice for my plan?
Q8: Are there enough things to do for Jungfrau and Titlis for 2 days? as we will spend 2 days there.
I am open to any advice on the itinerary, if you think there is something I should add or leave out. Let me know your opinions on the itinerary and if it is do-able.
Thank you so much!!
