I am going to Switzerland for 5 days towards the end of January. This is going to be my first and probably the only visit to Switzerland.
I plan to stay in Basel during my entire schedule (not fixed yet). I am getting a cheap accommodation for a family (50 Euro per day) at Basel.
I am going more for a sceneric view and a little bit of fun on snow with my spouse and a 4 year old son.
I plan to day trips to Mount Pilatus on one day and Mount Rigi on the second day. (Day 01 and Day 02). A trip to Bern on Day 3. A trip to Rhine falls on Day 4.During my first 4 days, I plan to buy a Swiss Travel Pass.Last day in Basel before going back on Day 5.
Q1. Should I stay at Basel or Zurich? Basel appeared to be more central to me.
Q2. Should I include Mount Pilatus or Mount Titlis? Which one is cheaper in terms of reaching from Lucerne? Which one offers better sceneric view?
Q3. Do I need to squeeze Interlaken or train express or Zurich ? Should I leave somethings out and squeeze any of the other places.
Q4. Do I need to book train tickets in advance?
