Hi,

I will be travelling to Switzerland 14th to 20th December and London from 20th to 27th December 2014 and back to Zurich from 27th to 29th December 2014.

So i do need some help with coming up with a feasible itinerary and i'm having a hard time planning. I would love to travel to the following places however i do need some professional advice on how i can have a smoother itinerary.

Places i would love to visit are:

  1. Zurich
  2. Chur
  3. Engadin
  4. Lugano
  5. Interlaken
  6. Grindelwald
  7. Bern
  8. Chocolate Factory
  9. Outlet shopping/ Milan 1 day

My planned itinerary is:

  • 14/12 - Depart SG to Zurich
  • 15/12- Zurich to Chur
  • 16/12- Chur to Lugano and Engadin
  • 17/12- Lugano to Milan
  • 18/12-Interlaken and Grindelwald
  • 19/12- Interlaken and Grindelwald
  • 20/12- Bern
  • 21/12 to 27/12 - LONDON
  • 28/12 t0 29/12 - Zurich
  • 29/12- Depart Zurich at night.

Not sure if this plan is sufficient or too rush. But i do hope to have a fair share of hiking, sightseeing and shopping for this trip. Would love to receive your advice!

Hope to hear from you soon :)

Thanks!

Hello heeyeekee,

To be honest, it's a bit much for 7 days. I mean, just the Engadin offers enough to do for weeks, and it looks like you're just passing by on the 16th. In general it's better to stay a bit longer in fewer places, as that allows you to really explore the region and to be flexible (e.g. plan city trips on bad weather days and mountain excursions when it's sunny). In your case, I would skip Chur, and stay longer in two places: e.g. Lugano and Grindelwald or the Engadine and Grindelwald. From Grindelwald, you can easily do a day trip to Bern.
