Hello There,

I am planning for Swiss Tour in Aug 2015 for 6 days (i.e. 5 nights). We are a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children). Can you please advice on the best option in order to buy train passes for 6 days?

Further can you please recommend a tour for these 6 days - considering where children can enjoy the most (Children ages are 12, 9, & 7).

A friend suggested to spend 2-nights in Luzern/Lucerne; 2-nights in Interlaken; and 1-night in Montreaux. Is this a good suggestion or someone can suggest me something better. What are the best places to visit in these areas or if you suggest some other option then please suggest the places.

Please note that this is first time I will be visiting Switzerland/Europe.

Appreciate your response.

regards,

Arno

Hi shariques,

Welcome to MySwissAlps! What do you and the children like to do? Hiking, boat trips, shopping, train rides, cable cars, museums? I'm sure the children would like the Swiss Museum of Transport. Click 'What to do' in the menu for more suggestions.

It will be easier to decide where to go once you know what you expect from the trip. Click 'Where to go' to find regions and towns. Once you have a plan, you can pick a rail pass that fits it. Please see here for further planning tips. I would not pick more than two base towns. Staying one night in any town doesn't leave a lot of time for sightseeing, and you'd be totally dependent on the weather in the few hours you're there, without the option to shift plans a bit.
