Hi spramanik8, welcome to MySwissAlps!

We need more details from you to provide useful tips. For example: what are your interests, why did you pick these towns, how many travelers, etc. A good page to start planning is this one.

As for accommodation: please see the "Where to sleep" section in the main menu. If you need more help, you can best post a new thread in the accommodation forum once your itinerary is fixed, and include information asked for here.

Hi Spramanik8 -

Please also add the city you will leave from, and, if known, the time of day you will arrive in Zürich and the time of day you will depart.

That helps with route/where to stay suggestions.

Thanks,

Slowpoke

Hi Soumyadip,

I'll assume you have a flight to Zurich and also leave from there. Since you only have 4 days I would recommend to skip Zurich itself and go straight to Lucerne, which is closer to the mountains. If you arrive early in the day you may want to visit the town center of Zurich for a few hours before going to Lucerne. See myswissalps.com/lucern e for tips. You can easily stay 4 days here as there is plenty to see. Alternatively you could stay 2 days and spend the other 2 days near Interlaken/Jungfrau region or in Zermatt. Not both, as there's not enough time for that. If you can extend to 5 days I would definitely recommend that.

For traveling I'd recommend public transport: basically trains, and some boats, buses and cable cars. A 4-day Swiss Travel Pass makes sense, but there are more options. You first need an itinerary before deciding on the rail pass.

The links should get you started. I hope this was useful!
