Friends, I am planing for family Trip in June 3 rd week for 3 days. My Plan So far is below and request to add more details : Stay in Zurich and to buy SWISS TRAVEL PASS for 3 days.
Please help to add more details to Day 2 & suggestions in Day 3 as well. I will be travelling with my Wife and 3 years old kid. Thanks in advance.
Hi Tamil, welcome to MySwissAlps,
Personally I would prefer to stay in Lucerne. Zurich is a nice town but not the highlight of Switzerland and not near the Alps. It's a good place to stay at the start or end of a longer trip, but with 3 days only, Lucerne will offer you more. My other tip is that there's not much to see or do in Interlaken, so I'd recommend to focus that day on the Jungfrau region south of Interlaken. Please find things to do here:
You can buy your Swiss Travel Pass online so you won't have to spend time on that upon arrival, and go straight to your first train. You can visit www.swissrailways.com/ en. After filling out your address, they will show the delivery options. Pick "Online Ticket" from the bottom of that list. They will e-mail the pass in 1-3 business days (no delivery fees) so you can print it at home. Other options are listed here.
Arno has it right.. Not surprising. ;-)
Start at Luzern and use it for your base.
It is easily accessible from Zuerich Flughafen
