Hello LSAINI and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

That will work if you don't mind some long train trips and regular hotel swaps. You would know better than us what your kids can tolerate by way of long train trips.

30th May I think you mean stay Lucerne?

And 31st May you mean Rhine Falls (www.myswissalps.com/rh inefalls)?

Use the Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to plan your travel. If you haven’t used it before it will pay to read the instructions on that page before delving into the timetable.

Are you considering a Swiss Travel Pass (www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass)? Based on your itinerary you need to do the sums based on the cost of all your planned trips on trains, boats, cable cars etc to see if a pass is worth it. You can use the Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to work out the fares for any trip. When you go to buy a ticket the fare you see on the right hand side of the page will normally be the half-fare price. Double it to get full fare. With A Swiss Travel Pass it is free provided it is shown as free on the Area of Validity map ( PDF downloadable from www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass/validity).

Your 2-year old will travel free and a Swiss Family Card (free with Swiss Travel Pass) will cover your 8-year old.

You should read “How to choose the best travel pass” (www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass).

Happy travels. 😎
