I am in Switzerland starting March 24th till 31st morning. I will need help in organizing my days well and surely an expert's advise will add flavor to my trip.

I am reaching Zurich in afternoon on 24th March and taking train to Lucerne. I assume my day will be over in the transfer and settling in Lucerne. For next 3 days I have stationed myself in Lucerne and covering nearby locations from there.

25- Covering Mount Titlis and return to Lucerne.

26-Covering Pilatus and return to Lucerne.

27-Covering Grindelwald and Jungfrau and return to Lucerne.

28-Early morning to Zurich. Check in and plan to visit Rhine Falls.

29-Zurich to Chur-Bernina Express to Tirano and return journey on same day.

30-No Plan yet.

31- Taking train to France at 11

I had preferred not to move my hotels again and again and hence stayed in 2 cities only. May I request for providing suggestions for 28/30 March and also how may enjoy on the planned days.

Also if there is something very good that I am missing, please advise. I have already bought Swiss Travel Pass and booked seats in Bernina Express.

Hi Vaibhav1975,

I agree in staying in just 2 cities during your trip as well. It looks like on the 28th and 30th you will be in Zurich. The major natural attraction near Zurich is the RheinFall and you have that planned.
Zurich itself is a business city primarily. There are a lot of opportunities for shopping, visiting museums and finding some nice restaurants to eat at if that is an interest.

You can also take a cruise on Lake Zurich or hike up nearby Üetliberg mountain (or train up the mountain and walk along the mountain ridges). You could do a day trip to Mt. Rigi as well if you like. There are a list of activities for Zurich listed here.

Are you looking for more outdoor activities or exploring the city?
