31. I might lean to Schilthorn myself but it is all weather dependent. If the weather is poor on the day you want to go to Schilthorn don't go and hope the weather is better for Mt. Titlis.

32. In Switzerland? or do you mean Mt. Titlis vs. Schilthorn?

There is the Swiss Transport museum in Lucerne that is very popular.
As is the Ballenberg open air museum near Interlaken.

Generally it will be quite cold on the mountains. +5-8 if you are lucky but probably around 0 degrees and colder by then. Be sure to check the weather that day before you go up so you dress appropriately!

34. If some medical help is needed at the peaks say Schilthorn, titlis, Jungfrau for my little one is it available? what sort of provision is there at the mounts?

I don't know specifics, you may want to contact them directly about it.

There certainly would be medical assistance available. If you are concerned about your baby going up to those altitudes then I would reconsider going and/or check with your doctor.

35. When we go to the top of Jungfrau or Schilthorn or titlis is there any closed observation desk ? when the weather is bad we can go there and have a look...

36. Do we have any snow clothes hire shop at the tops of the mountains or Lucerne/Interlaken

There is a building you can stay in if the weather is bad yes. But the views you get would still be quite poor.

There are clothing shops in the towns that you can visit to rent warmer clothes but not at the top of the mountain from what I recall.

Intersport is an outdoor company you can find in both towns and offers clothing rentals.

A quick google search should bring up some other options of you as well.

You can buy a Swiss Travel Pass here www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass/price

If you use SBB you need to fill in your address details before you will see the option for on-line (print at home) delivery.
