Hello vijays and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

Couple of problems with your days 3, 4. Titlis is at Engelberg, Jungfrau is nearer Interlaken.

Don’t spend too much time in Zurich. It is only 1 hour to Lucerne which has far more tourist type things to see and do.

What are your main aims on this trip?

Have you thought about using a Travel Pass? You should read about "how to choose the best travel pass" (www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass).

Hi vijays, and welcome to MySwissAlps,

Thanks for sharing your itinerary. For such a short trip you may want to consider to go straight to Lucerne or at least on the 14th. latest. It's a much nicer place to stay. I would recommend to visit the Jungfraujoch from Wengen or Grindelwald. Please read this page to find out how to travel to Jungraujoch.

Alternatively you could also go to the Jungraujoch first, then continue your trip to Lucerne and leave for Vienna from Lucerne via Zurich without staying another night in Zurich. The Swiss timetable is a useful tool to plan your trip.
