I will have my own rental car.
Thanks so much for your kind advice.

Day #1
Morning in [u]Lucerne[/u]
Boat trip on Lake Lucerne
Afternoon on [u]Mt Pilatus[/u]
What to do? ThePilatus can be accessed from 2 sides: Cogwheel train from Alpnachstad oraerial gondola/cable car from Lucerne-Kriens. To get to Alpnachstad you caneither take the train from Engelberg with a change at Hergiswil or get off atStansstad and take the boat. For Kriens take the train all the way to Lucerneand then short bus ride plus a 10 minutes’ walk. See if you can purchase thetickets at the Engelberg train station or Tourist Office.
Drive to Kandersteg

What to do? To get to the Schilthorn from the valley floor either of aseries of cable cars mustbe taken. The cable cars begin in [u]Stechelberg[/u] leaving to Gimmelwald andthen onto Mürren. From Mürren another cable car is taken to Birg, which is thefinal change before the Schilthorn. this cable airway is the longest and wasthe most technically challenging airway to be built. The other way up is totake the cable car from [u]Lauterbrunnen[/u] to Grütschalp and a trainto Murren, from where the cable car must be taken. Between Birg and the summit,the cable car passes over Grauseeli, a small lake.

Hello zimmee! Most of your plans are doable, but some days don't have a logical grouping or order of activities. Some examples are getting to the Faulhorn lodge by evening, which can only be reached on foot from First; and planning the glacier gorge, First, Pfingstegg, the Giessbach Falls and Zurich/Kloten all in one day. Consulting the Swiss timetable, and a good online Swiss map such as, will help you locate all activities and find out about traveling times.
