I am planning a trip to switzerland coming end of april. I have been reading website and looking for information a lot. We have kinda decided to based in Lucerne for most of the trip rather than rushing through every city. This is what we (a family of 5) are planning to do:
Day 1 - Arrive Zurich Airport from London (Arrive in the afternoon) - Travel to Lucerne by train and check in - Tour around the town
Day 2 - Mount Pilatus - Lake Lucerne - Local attraction/tour around the town
Day 3 - Engelberg & Mount Titlis
Day 4 - Mount Rigi or Day Trip to Jungfraujoch
Day 5 - Day trip to Zurich or stay in zurich for a night
Day 6 - Back to London in the afternoon/evening
I want to make sure that this itinerary is not too hectic as I will be travelling with my parents (don't want them to feel tired). I take it the best way to save money on travelling around would be a swiss rail pass?
Regarding Day5/6, I am not sure whether it is a better plan to stay in Zurich one night or just do a day trip to Zurich from Lucerne. Is there much to do/see in Zurich ?
Is there anything else major places I should visit/see while I am around Lucerne?
Thanks for the advice.
