Hi there -
We (self, wife and 9 year old daughter) are coming from Paris to Basel by lunch time on 25th September and flying out from Zurich on 1st October afternoon. We have 6 nights in Switzerland and here is the draft itinerary I have planned (based on the info from your site), would request your review for any suggestions and modifications. I havent made any hotel bookings and hence have flexibility to make changes. This is our first trip to Switzerland and we want to make best use of our time choosing the what to see (given the understanding that weather is a key factor for any mountain trips)
25th Sept: Arrive in Basel, Basel-Interlaken
26th Sept: Jungfraujoch (from Interlaken)
27th Sept: Lucerne
28th Sept: Lucerne (Mt Titlis)
29th Sept: Lucerne
30th Sept: Early morning depart to Zurich and spend a night - during the day City tour
1st Oct: Fly out from Zurich - 3.30 pm flight
The dilemma I have is will it be productive make a stop over for two nights in Interlaken - as the weather cant predictable and hence going up mountain for Jungfraujoch is uncertain ? Will we get experience atleast some part of Bernese Oberland - if we stay at Grindelwald or Lauterbernan - even if we dont get to go up to Jungfraujoch because of weather conditions.
Should we go from Basel some where else instead Interlaken and opt for some other experience before arriving at Lucerne ?
Zurich - one night is it worth it or do we spend that time in Lucerne itself ? We are considering a city tour of Zurich - because thats the only Switzerland big city where we have an opportunity to see.
Thanks in advance for your time.
