I need some advice on my Swiss trip. This is my first draft based on my basic research and reading.

  • 25th April - Munich to Interlaken
  • 26th April - Jungfrau and travel to Zermatt
  • 27th April - Matterhorn and travel to Lucerne using GoldenPass
  • 28th April - mt Titlis from Lucerne
  • 29th April - mt Pilatis form Lucerne
  • 30th April - leave for Zurich to catch flight back at 1pm

is this doable or am I being to ambitious? I specially need advice on the 27th April plan as I want to do Matterhorn and take the scenic train as well.

I love snow capped mountains so that would be surely my top preference.

Advice on the train journeys will help me firm my itinerary.

thanks in advance

Hi raunakkabra, welcome to MySwissAlps!

Great that you get to visit Switzerland in April. You'll certainly get your share of beautiful snow-capped mountains! Your itinerary is somewhat ambitious indeed. You rightly assume that your plans for April 27 are a bit too much. If you change the order of your plans, you'll be able to save on traveling time a bit:

Doing this the other way around will work too, starting in Zermatt and working your way up north to Interlaken, Lucerne and finally Zurich. If you leave out Zermatt, your itinerary will become a lot more relaxed, but of course that's a very personal decision. You'd best check the timetable for all details.

I hope this helps you to finalize your plans.
