Hello, I have written on here before but I have no idea where those posts went, and I can't find them in my email either. Anyway, here I go again..please bare with me! =)
We are a family of 4 traveling through Europe in the summer (July 10th -12th ) We will be coming from Colmar to Luzern, I am planning to purchase the 3 day Swiss Travel Pass. I'm planning on using the STP on the 10th coming from Basel to Luzern. I'm planning on leaving Colmar early so we can start our 1st day in Luzern.
Day 1. Luzern, What can a family of 4 do here? I do want to see and take photographs of the chapel bridge and I want to also see the Lion monument. My kids would probably want to ride the boat, and I am planning on surprising them with it because it's included in the STP. Does the boat go anywhere or just around the lake? what other things can we do besides that? I want use the pass as much as possible to make our money's worth. Will it be advisable to go to Bern and is it worth it?
Day 2. My Husband really wants to go and see the villages in the alps and waterfalls. I showed him Lauterbrunnen and he wants to really go there. Also, while were in that area, we want to go to Grindelwald First. Is this possible? My son is in a wheelchair also. He loves the outdoors and we don't want him missing out! We bring him out as much as possible, even if we have to move in a slower pace =) Is the Grindelwald cliff walk wheelchair accessible? or is that area even handicap friendly? Will the STP cover the train fees for this trip? What is the best route to take to these places coming from Luzern?
Day 3. Our last day. We want to go on the scenic Golden Pass Line. This one, I am confused! Is it just a train and takes you around to see the beautiful sceneries? I saw there are 3 routes? and I get even more confused! What do I do? Which route is best to take? Will it be possible to do this trip in 1 day? We prefer not to leave too late in the evening to go to our next destination (Milan) Since our trip to Switzerland is so short, we would want to see the best of it! We leave Switzerland on the 12th to Milan and I heard I can use my STP until the border, Can I book this trip in advance or do I need to do it at the train station to show my card?
Again, Thank you in advance for helping me out!! =)
