I just started planning our first visit to Switzerland. My husband and I will bring our 2 and 5 year-old to visit Switzerland this November. I understand that November is not the best time to tour Switzerland and many tourist spots are closed. Still I am trying to make our stay fun and not too tiring for the kids since we travel from a country with 6 hour jet lag. Here is what I figured out so far. I would greatly appreciate any could help me fill the blanks or point out any unsuitable/closed tourist spots on my list.
My general idea is that we will base in Zurich for 5 days with some day trips to places around and stay in Lucerne for 3 days, but I am open to moving around to more cities during our stay.
Day 1: Take a boat to cruise Lake Zurich and city walk
Day 2: Old Town and Uetliberg Mountain
Day 3: Take a day trip to Rhine Falls
Day 4: Can anyone suggest some one day trips around or a 2 day trip nearby for my day 4 and day5?
Day 6: Travel to Lucerne and city walk
Day 7: a day trip to Jungfrau
Day 8: a day trip to Rigi or Pilatus (Since Rigi has lower altitude, will it be easier for kids?)
Day 9: back to Zurich
I know my plan sounds too preliminary and I would greatly appreciate any suggestions. Thank you very much.
