We are a family with 2 kids visiting Switzerland starting from May 31. Since I am coming to Basel for Business conference, we have planned for a sudden short vacation. Need your suggestions on the below itinerary:
May 31 - Early Morning landing in Zurich. Shift 2 Basel by train and stay there for 2 nights.
June 2 - Shift to Lucerne. Stay there for 3 nights (Visit Mt. Titlis, Rigi and explore Lucerene and other towns)
June 5 - Shift to Zermatt from Lucerne (Stay there for 1 night and see Matterhorn)
June 6 - Travel to Montreux and stay for 2 nights (Explore the Cholocate / Cheese Factory, Chillon Castle, etc)
June 8 - Fly from Geneva
I need your suggestions on the following:
1. Any suggestions to improve the above itinearary?'
2. Any place worth visiting which can be included? I have skipped Jungfrau due to higher cost and don't want to travel much with kids. Is it the right decision?
3. I am exploring to go to Rhine Falls on May 31 after landing at the Zurich Airport at 6: 45 am since I wont be coming to Zurich again. I am thinking of dropping my major luggage and can pick it from Basel. So I am exploring if I should do Zurich Airport - Rhine Falls - Reach Basel by late afternoon / evening. Is this doable?
Your inputs would be highly useful. Thanks.
