hi, I have been back from my Swizterland hols last week and I thought I will update this forum.
So as planned, we arrived in Zurich and stayed over in a hotel for one night.
The next day, we left for Luzerne, and as I was still confused up until the last moment and had planned some extra activities in Zurich, I tool the 4 day Swiss Travel Pass instead of the Tell-Pass.
During our stay in Luzerne (which lasted 4 full days), we covered part of Glacier express from Chur to Andermatt (i even managed to reserve seats on the same day of travel), took boat trip back to Fluelen to Luzerne (it was simply amazing).
The next day we covered Mt, Titlis as wife had it as a must do (but because I had STP, i paid 92CHF extra to get there, but it was well worth it). We had 2 small kids in tow, so we couldnt cover a lot in the evening, went around Luzerne town for a stroll for some local shopping and food.
We also went to Pilatus (again, this was an awesome experience, up the cogwheel train and then down by cable car and Gondola), we even tried the giant slide at Frakmuntegg. In the afternoon, we visited Bern for a few hours, although I must say the big Bern clock was a bit disappointing, as nothing played at the 4pm bell.
On the last day we went back to Zurich and proceeded to Rhine Falls after checking the bags in the hotel. We went on a boat ride close to the falls, came back to Zurich Hb for some more food and local shopping (mainly choclates) and then left the beautiful country the next day early morning flight to UK.
While I had to pay with STP for my visit to Mt.Titlis and one way journey from Zurich to Lucerne, I also benefitted from going on Glacier Express, return ticket from Luzerne to Zurich, trip to Rhine Falls and also visit to Bern (all of this Tell-Pass won't cover fully). so all in all, a very satisfying trip and loads of pictures taken for long lasting memories. Kids were fine, they were a credit in this trip. me and wife were tired by the end of the day but we still managed to leave hotel 8:00am every day to enjoy sights and scenes.
Weather was very kind during our trip (apart from Day 2 where we had thunderstorms, but we didnt travel anywhere that day anyway).
Thanks for the helpful tips in this forum. I look forward to visiting Switzerland again, but my next trip is to Majorca in Oct.
