Hi,
I find this forum very informative! Great going!
am looking to travel around Swiss during the April 6th-9th (4 days, 3 nights)..
Main interests - Jungfrau, Mt. Titlis, Mt. Pilatus, Luzern, Rhinefalls.. (if i am missing something which i shouldnt please suggest :-) )

I am reaching zurich on 6th April morning... So the question is:

- Should i keep Interlaken as my base for 2 days and luzern as base for final day? Any other options?
- Would there be any interruptions in the swiss transport during this easter holidays ?
- Any closures in the above tourist places.. (jungfrau, etc..) during this holidays?

Can someone please advise?

Many thanks!
Annika

Hi SubsLdn! I'm glad you like the forum. As for your questions: Lucerne and Interlaken are your most obvious resorts. You've listed more day trips close to Lucerne (Titlis, Pilatus and the Rhine Falls) than to Interlaken, so you could also choose to spend 2 days in Lucerne and 1 in Interlaken. Trips can be planned using the timetable. We'll soon add lists of manually selected hotels (affordable and located centrally) for Interlaken and Lucerne, so just keep an eye on the hotel page.

Generally, major attractions are open during the easter holidays. If you want to be sure, you can best check the respective websites and look for opening times and hours.

Did you notice the 2 for 1 offer on the 4 day Swiss Saver Pass? It may be very convenient and economical for your stay (that is, if you'll be traveling with someone else).

I hope this gets you started!
