Hi Aisha, thanks for joining us!

1. You may want to reconsider the Rhine Falls. I feel like it's a bit too much after you arrival in Zurich at 2 pm, and the falls aren't that impressive in winter. Spending some time in downtown Zurich instead would be my personal preference.

2. Please refer to our tips at aken/activities and t/activities.

3. You'll find snow activities at the higher mountain tops, such as Jungfraujoch, Schilthorn, Gornergrat and Klein Matterhorn. Depending on weather and snow conditions, Männlichen and First in the Jungfrau region might be an option too.

4. If I were you I'd consider either an 8 day Swiss Travel Pass or a Swiss Half Fare Card. Which option is most economical for your plans can best be calculated (please refer to ticketspasses/practica l/chooserailpass) once your plans are set.

Does this get you started?
