My husband and I are planning to visit Switzerland on a 10 day visit. We are flying in and out of Zurich as that is the best option for us. Thanks to this great website, I think we can plan our days well with excursions and tours and hiking. I have prepared a very rough program with all the detailing pending.We would prefer to stay with Nature than visiting the monuments & historical buildings.

My first query is : The better time to visit

1. April 24- May 5th (2018) or

2 June 20 - July 1st (2018)

A very rough Itinerary is as below

Day 1 arrive Zurich from India & transfer to Lucerne

Day 2 Lucerne

Day 3 Lucerne

Day 4 Lucerne

Day 5 Lugano

Day 6 Lugano

Day 7 Lauterbrunnen /Grindelwald

Day 8 Lauterbrunnen /Grindelwald

Day 9 Lauterbrunnen /Grindelwald.

Day 10 Lauterbrunnen to zurich

Day 11 Leave Zurich for Home

Please guide for the timeperiod & itinerary.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Pragna and welcome to MySwissAlps!

Without a doubt come in late June over late April! Much better for hiking and having all or almost all cable cars into the mountains open. :)

Once that is decided come back here and let us know more details about your trip and we can help you find tune it.
