Hi,

I am planning on a 4 day trip to Switzerland. The following is sample itinerary that I came up with.

Day 1 : Reach Zurich at around 8:30 am. Catch the train to Interlaken. Check-in at room in Interlaken and leave for Schynige Platte. Return and maybe spend evening in Interlaken. Overnight stay at Interlaken

Day 2 : Travel from Interlaken to Lucerne. Visit to Mt Pilatus. Return to Interlaken. Stay overnight at Interlaken

Day 3 : Travel from Interlaken to Zurich. Check-in and then visit Rhine Falls. Stay in Zurich overnight.

Day 4 : Explore Zurich city. Leave Switzerland at 15:00.

I would like to know if this plan seems okay. Would it be possible to squeeze in a visit to Rigi Kulm on Day 2. How about taking a boat trip late on Day 1 or early Day 3 in Interlaken? Also any other suggestions? I have a 3 day Swiss travel pass to cover first three days.

Hi nitinpprasad,

Yes, it seems OK. You did not mention what time of year you plan to go to Switzerland. The Schynige Platte train does not operate in the winter. You can get up to Pilatus all year round, but the cogwheel railway closes in the winter, and the cable car closes for a maintenance period in late October-early November.

>> Would it be possible to squeeze in a visit to Rigi Kulm on Day 2.

You can use the Swiss Timetable to plan this out and see whether it is feasible:

>> How about taking a boat trip late on Day 1 or early Day 3 in Interlaken?

That will depend on the time of year. You can find the timetables for both the Brienzersee (Lake Brienz) and the Thunersee (Lake Thun) in the following document:

I hope this helps.
