Would be great to get your comments and suggestions on the travel plan. Also, I am thinking a Swiss Half Fare Card would suit my needs best.. Please advise on this as I know you all have lots of experience with the region. Also, Does a Swiss Half Fare Card apply to the local transit in Zurich as well?
Arriving at Zurich from Prague at 7:30am.
Day1: Picking up a car at Hertz (have some points), driving to Geneva. Visiting Berne/Lausanne or other small towns on the way. Arriving at night, dropping off car at Geneva Airport.
Any suggestion for stops along this route would be great!!!
Day2: Sight seeing in Geneva. (Debating on staying night in Geneva or taking train to Montreaux and staying there)
Day3: Taking Golden Pass Express to Interlaken/Lucerne. A trip to Jungfrau on the way
Day4: Touring Lucerne and around. Going to Zurich at night. Staying in Zurich for 5nights (Got hotel deal with points).
Day5, 6, 7, 8: I guess a couple of days for Zurich. And looking for some ideas for day trips for the other two days (I guess involving train journeys, or I can rent a car for another two days with points) from Zurich.
Any input is greatly appreciated!!!
