I am travelling to Switzerland for the first time this April with my husband and it is our honeymoon!
I am having a bit of a hard time trying to decide and make the best out of the 5days 4nights stay in Switzerland.
I have done some research on my own however I still need your expertise to help complete my itinerary below:
Paris to Zurich by TGV > Zurich to Lucerne and will reach Lucerne by around 1-2pm.> Check in Hotel.
Qns 1: What can we do from 2pm onwards? Is it right to say that we cannot do much as I understand that most of the shops closes at around 6-630pm?
Lucerne > Mt Titlis
Qns 2: Is it good to set aside 1 day for Mt Titlis as I would not like to rush it through?
Day 3 - Lucerne
Qns 3: If we are not able to do much sightseeing on Day 1, we could continue some of the walk around in Lucerne town right?
Qns 4: Will I need a day to explore Lucerne? As I am looking for a mix of town walks, scenic sights and scenery with mountain landscapes and beautilful lakes and valleys, Does Interlaken fit my description more than Lucerne?
I am flying off to Barcelona on Day 5 morning, therefore I will stay 1 night in Geneva. Which means I will be travelling from Lucerne to Geneva on this day.
Qns 5: are there some places that I can go drop by along the way?
Qns 6: My initial plan was to visit Zermatt (Matterhorn), I also have Interlaken at the back of my mind. I am wondering where can I fit this places in or can I only fit one of them in?
Qns 7: Looking at my itinerary above, Is a Swiss Half fare or a Swiss Pass a better option?
Looking forward to your kind advise.
Thank you very much!
