Im Vishal from India, male of 30 years. Im getting married on 8 Nov. I want my honeymoon trip in switzerland for around a week starting around 15 to 20 Nov. I have never been outside india before but I have read a lot of information on this website. Ive read that november is not the best time to visit switzerland but the timing cannot be changed much.
I (and thankfully my fiancee too) love nature and mountains. So am not keen on visiting cities, more interested in the alps. On reading the forums two regions are of most interest i.e. jungfaru region and lucerne.
My broad plan is
Day-1: land at zurich. train to interlaken (luterbrunnen/wengen/murren appear to be better for nature lovers and quiet retreats if possible.). Explore whichever of these towns for the day.
Day-2/3: Visit the Jungfraujoch on the day when weather is good. If weather is not good then suggest some other day trip or even a short hike but not too strenous as im not sure of the wife's stamina.
Day-4: take a train to Lucerne. Enjoy a boat trip at lake lucerne. roam around town.
Day-5: Visit Pilatus/Titlis (which one is better?) on day trip. return to lucerne for the night.
Day-6: Spend this day in Lucerne itself OR go to some other region (zermatt??) for a day or two.
Day-7: Go to zurich and take rerturn flight to new delhi (India).
Is this good? Should i do the lucerne days first and jungfrau afterwards? Will any cog railways etc be closed during 15-28 november? Can add a day or two for some worthwhile attractions. Since its a honeymoon trip dont want to be moving around too many different hotels within a region. I have my birthday on 25 nov. would like to spend it there.
I can take the swiss half fare card (120 CHF) or is it better to take the swiss travel pass with the india promotion for effectively 5 or 10 days? www.myswissalps.com/fo rum/topic/up-to-2-extra-travel-days-for-indian-travelers
Any other suggestions/advice are welcome?
