We are arriving in switzerland on April 19th afternoon and flying out of zurich on 22nd morning. We will be staying in Zurich. We intend to go to Jungfrau on 20th full day.

An anyone suggest what would be the best places to see on 19th and 21st ? We will have our swiss passes and staying close to the zurich hbf, so should be able to use the transports easily. Can someone help?

Hi sajikumark and welcome to MySwissAlps!

What is it you are hoping to see and do while in Switzerland? Are you hoping to go into the mountains? If so, heading to Lucerne is the easiest option. Do note that Jungfraujoch from Zurich is 4 hours one-way...
If Jungfraujoch is your one mountain trip have a look at activities close or in Zurich here.

See a list of general suggestions for things to do in Switzerland here.

You can use the Swiss railways timetable here to plan out any trips you want to do.

Thanks lucas. In fact staying in lucerne or interlaken is a suggestion I have received from a friend of mine too. Mountains, cablecars, jungfrau trip, lakes, falls etc are what we have in mind.

Hi Sajikumark,

Yes, I would also recommend to stay elsewhere given the things you want to see and do. Zurich is not in or near the mountains. Lucerne might work very well as you have a plane to catch in the morning of April 22. There are direct trains to the airport, so there's probably no need for you to change base to Zurich for the last night (if not, you'll find airport hotels here: www.myswissalps.com/zu richairporthotels). See the timetable that Lucas referred to for the trains. His Lucerne link given you plenty of options for things to do and also hotel suggestions.
