We have finally sorted out our itenary and are looking forward to our long awaited trip. Just one or two last questions to make sure all is good.
Itenary as follows:
Day one (25/6) Arrive from Florence at 13.45 and will check in to Hotel Continental where we will be based for the next 5 days. Have a look around Luzern town as our Swiss Pass only starts on the 26/6.Just wondering, since it is a Sunday, will there be any shops open?
Day two (26/6) Using our Swiss Travel Pass, travel to Mt. Titlis for the day and maybe stop at Engelberg on the way down to have a look. (weather permitting)
Day three (27/6) Our initial plan was to spend the day at Interlaken and Bern but seeing that there isn't much to do in Interlaken, we were wondeing would there be enough time (one day) to take the Golden Pass route to Montreux and back in a day? If i check the timetable and make an early start at 705, we get to Montreux at 1213 via the MOB Panoramic. Walk around the town (anything interesting closeby to the train station? as we do not want to venture too far off). Then we can take the 1544 train from Montreux back to Luzern via the MOB Panoramic again and reach at 2156. Is this worth it? We don't mind the long day and we would like to see some of the scenery. Or could we go one way via the MOB Panoramic and come back via a normal train but get back home earlier?
Day four (28/6) Trip to Mt. Rigi via the Classic Round Trip and if possible a quick trip to Mt. Pilatus as well. (weather permitting again) If we do not intend to visit Mt. Pilatus, then we may make a trip to Bern after Mt. Rigi. (Mt. Pilatus or Bern a better bet?)
Day five (29/6) Train to Zurich. Visit the old town and a side trip to Uetliberg. Day six (30/6) Fly home.
My main question is: Should we make the trip to Montreux? And if yes, do we need to make seat reservations on the MOB Panoramic? Can we do this the day before we travel as we are worried about the weather for the mountain excursions and we may switch the days for travelling up to the mountains.
Thanks in advance everyone. Cheers!
