Hello,

Coming from London, first time visiting Switzerland with my son, 24 years old. Will be there from 19/7 to 25/7 and my itinerary is as follows:
Day 1 Arrive Zurich airport around 5 pm, take train to hotel. Stay 2 nights at Zurich
2 Zurich - sightseeing.
3 Travel to Interlaken by train. Stay 2 nights at Interlaken
4 Board train for a excursion to Jungfraujoch and return stopover at Grindelwald.
5 Take train to Luzern. Stay 2 nights at Luzern
6 Cruise on Lake Luzern, excursion to Mt Pilatus
7 Depart Luzern to Zurich airport by train for my flight at 3.30 pm

What kind of Swiss pass or card would you recommend I get? Does Zurich Airport has a luggage storage facility? I prefer to travel lightly when I move from city to city within Switzerland. Do you think that is a good itinerary for a first time tourist to Switzerland. Thank you.

Hi sandy,

Your itinerary looks good! Luzern and Interlaken are great locations to start your trips into the mountains. I would say a Swiss Half Fare Card for each of you is the cheapest option. If you prefer not to buy tickets for each trip and be flexible, an 8-day Swiss Saver Pass for 2 people would be worth your consideration. If you want to calculate exactly, this FAQ explains how to do it.

I'm quite sure that Zurich airport (or the rail station at the airport) has lockers. I'm sure the Zurich central station has them. You can also have your luggage transported for you.
