My wife and I are planning to be Switzerland and visiting the beautiful Grindelwald region. We will arrive at Zurich early morning and spend the night there before heading to Grindelwald. The following is our high level itinerary

Day 1 : Arrival in Zurich (International Flight)

Day 2-5: Arrive in Grindelwald (we intend to visit Jungfraujoch and Harder Klum, including 3 to 4 relatively easy hiking trails in the surrounding region including First & Lauterbrunnen). I haven't figured out which hiking trails yet because there so many. Suggestions will be welcomed. We are still torn between to base in Interlaken vs Grindelwald but veer towards staying closer to the mountains in Grindelwald.

Day 6-8: Arrive at Lucerne.(Lake Lucerne, Mt Rigi, Mt Titlis, Old town) - any suggestions welcome

Day 9, we are going to Paris by taking the train. Which is the train transport node/station closest to Lucerne where we can take the train to Paris? Is it Zurich or Bern?

Much appreciate any tips/ideas/suggestions that could help refine my itinerary. Thank you.

Hi Eugene and welcome to MySwissAlps.com!

I, personally prefer Grindelwald over Interlaken to stay for the night. But many other travellers prefer Interlaken as it is more vivid and easier to reach a bigger region (LakeThun and Lake Brienz for example).

You can find accommodation here:

I am not sure how difficult hiking trails you are looking for. At www.myswissalps.com/jungfrauregion/activities you can filter for the hiking trails by difficulty: (Scroll down to see the hiking part).

Some hiking tips in general: www.myswissalps.com/hiking

Activity tips for Lake Lucerne region: www.myswissalps.com/lakelucerne/activities

Regarding Paris, TGV travels from Basel, Zürich, Geneva and Lausanne. From Lucerne the fastest one is via Basel (around 4 hrs 45 mins). Please have a look at the SBB timetable for detail. If you are not familiar with the SBB timetable, start here: www.myswissalps.com/timetable.

Also make sure to have a look at this page - as you are going to Paris, this will help you to get the best train ticket: www.myswissalps.com/traintickets/italy.

My last suggestion is, that make sure to have a Swiss rail pass to save money.

I hope this helps,
