Hi Friends

I'll be travelling to Swiss from 19-25 July and I am very confused about the sight seeing and travelling .. These are the things on my bucket list but i am not sure whats the best way to reach there saving time and at the same enjoying the most.

19-21 in Bern , 21-23 in Lucerne and 23-25 in Zurich (Hotels are booked at these places already)

I want to visit : Mt. pilatus , Mt. Riji and Mt Titlis ----- Also travel by the Bernina express to tirano and back or italy if possible in this time frame. Would really appreciate if anyone can guide me or kindly show me a sample itinerary :)

20 July going Interlaken so could go any other the mountains in the afternoon say after 2-3 pm (PLS SUGGEST closest mt.)

Rest days i am quite open and would like your views

Thanks a lot

HI darsanj143 and welcome to MySwissAlps!

So, Mt. Titlis, Mt. Rigi and Mt. Pilatus are all easily (or most easily) reached from Lucerne. Bern to Luzern is about 1 hour 15 minutes so you could spend one day going from Bern to one of those mountains if you like. If you are set on going to all 3 mountains I would split it into 2 or 3 days.

If mountain scenery is what you are after I would move 1 or both nights from Bern to Lucerne or Interlaken instead. This will allow to to see a mountain in the Interlaken region much more easily - for example Jungfraujoch or Schilthorn (I would want to leave Interlaken by 12 noon at the latest to visit either mountain). A closer option to Interlaken would be Brienzer Rothorn.

The Bernina Express from any other 3 towns you are currently booked in would be hard to accomplish in one day. From Zurich and Luzern you are looking at 1.5 to 2 hours, then the 4 hour train ride itself and then back to either town would be close to 6 hours.

I hope this helps organize you a little bit - let us know if you have further questions!
