Hi, I'm planning a family trip of Switzerland for 3 days, between 14th & 16th October. I would be staying in Basel & wish to include Lucerne, Interlaken & Mt Titlis in my trip. I would love to have some information about Matterhorn & Zermatt as well, for a day trip from Basel.

Regards,

Samik

Hi Samik, and welcome to MySwissAlps!

Basel is not a very suitable base for the places you want to see. The time necessary to travel to and fro will limit what you can do in the various destinations you want to visit. Sunset will be around 18:39.

However, if you are committed to staying in Basel, you can work out travel routes and travel times by using the Swiss Timetable:

www.myswissalps.com/ti metable

Information about the destinations in which you are interested is available on the following pages:

www.myswissalps.com/lu cerne

www.myswissalps.com/ti tlis

www.myswissalps.com/ju ngfrauregion

www.myswissalps.com/ze rmatt

Please note that Interlaken is not really a destination in itself. The reason people go there is to get access to the mountains and villages of the Jungfrau Region (Jungfraujoch, Schilthorn, Schynige Platte, Männlichen, Harder Kulm; Lauterbrunnen, Grindelwald, Wengen, Mürren). If you didn't intend to go into the Jungfrau Region, I would omit Interlaken from your itinerary.

Hi, Thank you very much for your quick reply. But, as I am committed to stay in Basel, I would like some suggestions regarding my trip to Lucerne & Mt Titlis. As par your suggestion we can skip Interlaken.

Furthermore, I need some suggestions regarding a day trip to Zermatt from Basel. We are early risres, so if we start the day early, can we make this day trip to Zermatt work.

Regards,

Samik

Hi Samik,

Alpenrose has provided you with a link to the timetable which you should use to plan your trip and calculate costs. She also provided links to our webpages where you can find more information about the places you would like to visit.

Could you perhaps be more specific as to what information you're looking for that you couldn't find in the timetable or on our website?
