in reply to Annika
Thank you so much for responding and providing such detailed suggestions! My friend who just visited Switzerland in August 2016 told me that i should not be tied to destinations along the scenic train routes and that any train ride in Switzerland would be scenic enough. She also can't rave enough of Zermatt!
Because of this, i have came up with route 3 lol! Hope u can bear with me and advise me if this would be the best of the three!
Day 1 & 2: Milan to Zermatt early morning. Explore Matterhorn, Gornergrat and easy hike to Riffelsee. (2 nites in Zermatt)
Day 3, 4 &5: Zermatt to Lucerne. Explore Mt Pilatus, Lake Lucerne and a day trip to Jungfrau via Grindelwald in one of the days if possible.
I have miscalculated. We only have 5d5n in Switzerland as we would be leaving for Paris on day 6! This route has less traveling and allows us to enjoy the Alps more, I think! My questions are:
- Is Zermatt worth a visit in the first week of April? Worried that it may not be as nice as my friend experienced as she went in August.
- To make a day trip from Lucerne to Jungfrau, what time would you suggest that we leave Lucerne? Or is a day trip possible at all??
Thank you so much!
