in reply to Arno
thank you so much for a very quick response. I am actually getting a lot relaxed now that i have useful information coming from you and annika..what a relief! i hope you don't get tired answering my queries :)
Id like to show you a sample of my itinerary and please share your idea if this will work out fine..suggestions will be highly appreciated.
day 1 : A.M. paris france to basel to lucerne (as annika suggested) P.M. lucerne city tour , swiss miniature in Melide
day 2 : A.M. titlis P.M. rhine falls
day 3 : A.M. easy hiking from engelberg via ober truebsee to the truebsee ( im really not sure about this,i just found it in one site.. ) / or any suggestion please ( anything that has to do with nature whether a hike or simple sight seeing) P.M. Zurich airport / going back to doha qatar
with regards to the rail pass,swiss half price may be cheaper but i would still have to pay the other half of fares,ticket entrance, etc.plus the long line if ever is not very convenient. im thinking of a swiss pass instead but im not very sure if i understand it correctly.the swiss pass costs CHF245/adult via the railway station.this is the 4 day unlimited ride valid for a month i suppose.what are the other numbers as to 8, 12 or up to one year means in the swiss pass summary?we will be there for almost 3 days so i guess this is ok. are there any requirement needed in buying this kind of railway pass?is this always available in the counter? im coming from paris,can i buy the swiss pass when i reach basel train station?will i be able to use it right away?
kindly give me a link where i can download a railway map and switzerland map with tourist areas if there is any .
again ...thank you so much .
