We will be in Switzerland for 4 days. We will be arriving in Zurich and then going to Lucerne where we will be staying 1 day and then moving on to Interlaken where we will be for 3 days. We have planned the following trips - Mt. Titlis, Golden Pass scenic train from Lucerne to Interlaken, Mt. Jungfraugh.

Can you please advise if there are any other must-see attractions that we can cover while in Lucerne or Interlaken. Is there anything to see in Zurich. We are not sure if we should spend the entire day in Zurich or go to Lucerne directly and spend time in Lucerne by going around places nearby the day we reach like Lake Lucerne etc.

Please advise of other attractions that we can see in Lucerne, Interlaken given the short time we have.

Hi europe0625! With just the trip to the Titlis, your day in Lucerne will be pretty full already. If you want to see more of the Lucerne area, I suggest a boat ride over the lake and a visit to either Rigi or Pilatus. If scenic trips are your main focus, you can better move on to Lucerne right after arrival in Zurich and spend some more time there. Zurich is a great city though, so again, it depends on your preferences.

As for your stay in Interlaken: apart from a visit to the Jungfraujoch, you have lots of day trip options. Please visit this overview for a first impression.

You may also be interested in hotels in Lucerne and Interlaken. Check the rail pass overview too; depending on your exact itinerary and preferences, you may want to look into a 4 day Swiss Saver Pass or the Swiss Half Fare Card.
