Dear Swissalps team,

I booked Sep 8 to Sep 16 -2018 these days for fantastic Swizz trip.Now am stuck with itenary.I am landing in Geneva from Kuwait.Could you please provide me a good itenary to visit most beautiful places using Swizz train ,lake and bus system in the days. My family include 2 kids ( 3year and 1 year old).I am interested in Jugfrauj,Titlis,Glacier,Chocklate factory,etc.I am preferring best each one mountain, lake and sceneric area rather than all moutains and lake.

Landing 1400hr in Geneva- Departing from Geneva 16th 1700hr..

I am expecting a good replay

Hi Arun

Maybe our itinerary we did (with older kids ) can be useful . Itinearies are always driven by individuals in tersm of pace , locations to be visited , budget etc . In your case you have young kids ..keeping in mind those sensitivities ..here is my suggestion

Suggest you keep one city as the base ..

Day 1 - Geneva - coming of a long flight you might want to spend the day in Geneva - City Tour - Lake Geneva - Montreax - Geneva (overnite).

Day 2- Head to Interlaken ( can be the base for your trip). - You can try to get the Golden Pass line from MOntreaux to Interlaken

Day 3 - Interlaken - Grindelwald - Jungfraujoch - Grindelwald (dinner) - Interlaken

Day 4 - Interlaken - Broc - Bruille (Choclate/Cheese factory vists) - INterlakenn

Day 5 - Interlaken - Laterbrunnen (Waterfalls) - Schilthorn (mountain) - Murren (mini trek to Gimmelwald)- Interlaken

Day 6 - Interlakken - Luzern (scenic train) .- Mount Titlis - Luzern (overnight)

Day 7 - Luzern - Rhine Falls - Zurich city tour - Luzern

Day 8 - Luzern - Lugano (Gothard Panorama Express) - route partly by boat . Lugano provides the Italian flavour . You can take a cruise on Lake Lugano - Luzern

You might want to take it easy on Day 5 and such do a trip to Latterbrunnen .....depending on how your children keep up to it .

The glacier express/ bernina express have not been included as the journey might be quite strenuous for the children .

You can use a 8 day swiss travel pass that would cover most of the trips except Jungfaruch and Titlis .

Trust this helps.

Day 6

Hi Arun and welcome to MySwissAlps!

If you'd like some planning help have a read through our link here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/plantrip

Day 2: Perhaps a nice place to rest on the way back to Montreux or Lausanne (I'd stay in Montreux (https://www.myswissalp s.com/montreux) from the Glacier 3000 would be Gstaad. https://www.myswissalp s.com/gstaad

Day 3: If you start early you'll still have a 1/2 day after visiting Gornergrat. Read about Zermatt and what to do there here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/zermatt

Day 4: No, taking the Golden Pass to Interlaken from Zermatt and then going up Jungfraujoch can't be done in 1 day. It is too much. https://www.myswissalp s.com/goldenpass & https://www.myswissalp s.com/jungfraujoch

Use the Swiss railways timetable to plan out trips: https://www.myswissalp s.com/timetable

If you take the Swiss Travel Pass for 8 days starting September 8, it will expire at 05:00 September 16. You'll need to buy tickets on the 16th (or on the 8th if you decide to start it on the 9th). https://www.myswissalp s.com/swisstravelpass
