We are a family of 4 intending to travel to Switzerland at the end of June 2017. Our itinerary is as follows:-
Day 1: Arrive Zurich Airport at 7am (purchase Zurich Pass)
-Full day tour of Zurich
Day 2: Zurich-Rhinefalls-St Gallen-Appenzell-Zurich
Day 3: Zurich-Bern-Gruyere-Zurich
Day 4: Zurich-Lucerne-Lauterbrunnen(Still unsure of where to stay at BO)
Day 5: Jungfraujoch or Schilthorn (1/2 day), Eiger Walk (1/2 day)
Day 6: First (Bachalpsee-Faulhorn-Schnigge Platte-full day)
Day 7: Kanderstegg (Oeshinensee)-Thun
Day 8: Lauterbrunnen-Zermatt (Gornegrat or Matterhorn)
Day 9: Zermatt-Geneva-Home (flight at 2130)
We will be staying at Zurich from Day 1-Day 4, Bernese Oberland (BO) Day 4-Day 8) and Zermatt for the last night.
Q1. Is half day sufficient for Appenzell Region on Day 2. We only want to see the scenery at Bergghastaus Aerscher and maybe do a small hike (around an hour or so), is it possible to squeeze in Chur for dinner at the end of the day?
Q2. Appreciate you guys help in fine tuning our itinerary. Any ways to include a scenic rail into our itinerary (i.e. glacier express, glacier express)
Q3. Which is the cheapest data sim available in Switzerland. I had checked at coop seems to have the best vale around CHF25 for 3gb. Are there any cheaper data sim? Will it be cheaper to get a pocket wifi?
Q4. Where to stay in BO. We had narrowed it down to Wengen/Lauterbrunnen/Grindelwald.
Q5. Suggestions on where to go should the weather turn foul during our stay at BO.
Q6. Schilthorn or Jungfrau?
Thank you in advance!
