We are travelling to Switzerland and our itinerary is as follows:
- Arrive into Geneva mid morning
- Train to Interlaken directly from Geneva airport
- 2 nights in Interlaken
- Morning train to Lucerne
- 3 nights in Lucerne
- Morning train to Geneva (Golden Pass)
- 2 nights in Geneva
We have 1 full day in Interlaken and were trying to decide between Jungfraujoch and Schilthorn. Any suggestions? Also, we are going to arrive in Interlaken late afternoon and were looking for ideas on short excursions.
While in Lucerne we were planning to do Pilatus & Titlis. Do they both offer the same views? Can we skip one of them? What about Rigi? Also, we have half a day in Lucerne right after we arrive from Interlaken and were thinking of either spending it in Zurich or Bern. Any suggestions on which one is a better choice? Are there other options or recommendations?
On our way back we are planning to go to Montreux before we go to Geneva (Golden Pass). Any suggestions on what we can do in Montreux for half a day? The next day we are planning to visit Gruyeres (cheese factory) & Broc (chocolate factory). Would that take a whole day? If not, are there other trip suggestions in that area?
We have an 8 day 1st class Swiss Pass.
Apart from the questions above, I would love to get any other recommendations/suggestions from you.
