We will be visiting Switzerland between 20th-29th June 2017.

As we are travelling with a 11 month infant, making an itinerary was a little difficult, as we are unaware of the weather conditions in Switzerland. All these forums have been extremely helpful and I have made a tentative itinerary (as below). Kindly opine if this is fine for a relatively relaxed tour with a child. Can we add something/ should we delete anything listed (for the fear of being risky for an infant?)

The itinerary is as follows:

Our first base is Zurich (Have an official work on Day 3)

Day 1 : Arrive in Zurich : 1230 hrs

After checking in, explore nearby areas, visit supermarket and store some food, Late evening : Are there any night boat trips/ city tours?

Day 2 : Visit Rhine Falls

Day 3 : Busy till 3 PM, Evening in Zurich : Is a city tour feasible?

Day 4 : In Zurich till 12 PM, Reach Lucerne – Check in 3 PM,Visit Lucerne Chapel Bridge/ Inseli Park/ Jesuit Church/ Lion Monument

Day 5 : Trip to Rigi

Day 6 : Take golden pass route to Interlaken via the Brunig Pass, proceed to Lauterbrunnen (What can we do in Lauterbrunnen? Can we visit Schilthorn?) --Return back to Lucerne

Day 7 : Lake Lucerne/ City tour

Day 8 : Mount Pilatus – The weather forcast ( 27Th June 2017 ) says sunny with scattered thunderstorms.. Will the weather be too harsh?

Day 9 : Return back to Zurich from where fly back home

We plan to buy a 8-day swiss travel pass and use it for for day excursions and boat/train trips.

We are a couple in 30s and an infant aged 11 months. Our interests would be site seeing (should it be more inside the train or outside?) and farm/ boat tours.
