I have devised a somewhat ambitious itinerary for our 3 days. I would appreciate it if anyone has the opportunity to review and comment on how realistic this is and offer any advice on things that would be worth considering as none of the below is set in stone yet:
1.We will be arriving from Hong Kong and therefore the 6 hours time difference will mean jet lag-especially for the kids could be a factor.
2.We definitely want to get a feel for the Swiss large towns but have deliberately minimised our time in towns as we want to maximise our opportunity to see the countryside.
3.We plan to travel on a 3 day Swiss pass.
Day 1 - We arrive in Zurich approx. 6am on the 26th and plan to head to Zurich and spend a couple of hours there exploring the central area. Then head to Lucerne for approx. 11am - again, explore the central area for a couple hours and have lunch. We then plan to take the train to Murren (via Brunig and Interlaken) and spend the night there (if there is time and jet lag is not too much of an issue then we may visit Trummelbach falls - if not we will do this on day 2)
Day 2 - up early and head to the top of Mt Shilthorn (hopefully there will be snow, any advice on whether this is likely would be appreciated), descend around lunchtime. Visit Trummelbach falls if we were unable to do this on day 1. Take the train to Kandersteg and visit the toboggan run. Stay at either Kanderstag, Visp or Brig - appreciate some advice here, my aim is to allow us to be as close as possible to day 3 itinerary start point
Day 3 - Up early(again!) Head to Zermatt for a couple of hours, visit the Charles Kuonen suspension bridge in Randa (just walk across and back - allowing approx. one hour) then travel to Geneva having a look around a couple of towns on route -appreciate some advice on which would be the best ones to look around. We aim to be in Geneva for around 5pm to eat, look around and then head to the airport for approx. 8PM
