Hello Myswissalps team,
Great site with lots of useful information. I did read thru some relevant trip reports and other posts, and it ha been very helpful. I am putting together an itinerary for our upcoming trip and would like your advice.
We are traveling with our 2 teenage kids, arriving at Zurich 4pm June 17th, returning back early morning of June 26th ( should stay at hotel near Zurich airport to catch 6:45 am flight back home).
I am thinking of buying 8 day Swiss travel pass.
June 17 - Arrive in Zurich 4 pm. Check into hotel, stroll thru Zurich( on foot) relax.
June 18 - Start using Swiss Travel pass ( I hope we can do so, and not loose a day on a pa for 17th), visit Rhine falls, university of Zurich ( this is per request from my son) . can we do any additional sight seeing this day? like city tour or something? Will we have time? Overnight at Lucerne.
June 19 -20
- Lucerne City and Mt Rigi
- Mt Titlis or Pilatus ( leaning more towards Titlis)
June 21st - Travel to Bern, sight see Bern and then over night at interlaken/Murren/lauterbrunnen/wengen.
Jun 22- 25 - following are the activities I can think of. I know we can't accomplish all of these in 3 days, but listing all here,to get your input on best choices/combinations and can also serve a backup plan in case of rain. Thanks to various posts and documents on the forum for this, I forget the name, but there are 3 docs posted with all details about Wengen area which has detailed and excellent information.
- Wengen to Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg
- Eiger Trail
- Trümmelbach Falls.
- Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg, optional to Mürren
- Schynige Platte to First
- Lauterbrunnen to Lobhornhütte, return via Grütschalp
- North Face and Flower Trails.
- Mt Jungfraujoch
- Travel to Vevye - castle chillon
- Lake Thun or lake Brienz
- Montreux and geneva
What would be best to cover in 3 days in your opinion ( from above list) Can we combine any of these in a single day?
We have to allow time to travel to Zurich on June 25th.
Alternately I am thinking if staying in interlaken/Murren/lauterbrunnen/wengen instead of split stay in Lucerne may give some more flexibility? What would you suggest?
Thanks in advance.
