Below is the Planned Itinerary :
Day 1 : Arrive from Zurich to Interlaken by afternoon. Enjoy local sight seeing in Interlaken.
Day 2 : Interlaken to Broc Caison Miller Chocolate factory . Do we need to book tickets in advance for Chocolate factory tour. This takes around 2 hrs 24 minutes by changing trains from Bern and Bulle. Any local sight seeings you suggest for this day?
Day 3: Interlaken to Schilthorn and back to Lucerne by 6 PM train . Is it doable? Also can we use Golden Panaromic train or it should be done on Day 1? Please clarify on this.
Day 4 : Lucerne to Mt. Rigi. Want to do the Round trip including cable car mentioned in the site to enjoy boat ride . Is it the only trip mentioned in the site ((www.myswissalps.com/ rigi) for boat ride or any other alternative?
Even for Schilthorn I understand that trip will be like this Interlaken>Lauterbrunnen > Cable car to Grütschalp> Train to Murren and then walk other side to go to Schilthorn cable car . For both these do we have any restrictions due to weather in April? Please confirm if i can plan based on the route provided in this site?
Day 5: Sight seeing in Lucerne
Day 6 : Lucerne to Zurich and visit Rhine falls (tentative).
Please let me know if any modifications/ alternates required for the above plan because of weather in 1st week of April.
Also how will be the weather during that time. Will it be too cold that very warm clothing (like Gloves, warm hats etc..are) required? Or manageable with light jacket and layers of clothing.
