Hello sanchita!

I see you've made some changes to the itinerary you initially posted. Most of it looks fine, but here are some comments:

  • please note that boats on Lake Lucerne will already cruise according to the winter timetable. Evening cruises are available, but the options are somewhat restricted. You can check the options using the link to the timetable at myswissalps.com/boatla kelucerne/gettingthere;
  • on October 22, it makes more sense to take a boat tour over Lake Thun rather than Lake Brienz, as Lake Thun is closer to Bern, which is next on your list;
  • the days in Innsbruck are a personal choice of course. But such a side trip does require a lot of traveling time (Zurich-Innsbruck is a 4 hour train ride), which could instead be used for further exploration of Switzerland. For example, there's a lot more to see and do in both the Lucerne and Interlaken regions.

I hope this helps you to complete your itinerary.

Hi Sanchita -

I've been to Innsbruck more than once, and to Switzerland a lot. All over Switzerland ... Maybe 80 times.

Given a choice, I'd pick Switzerland and avoid a long train ride to Austria, while seeing better scenery.

Just my opinion of course. ;-)

Perhaps you have specific things you have selected in Innsbruck that have personal significance for you? That could alter my opinion.
