Thank you for this wonderful forum. i would like to seek your help in planning for the Switzerland trip. My family (husband & two sons aged 16&12) travelling from Dubai to Europe from 20th April-29th April. Will be reaching Zurich on 26th April. Hotel accommodation is booked in Zurich only for 3 days. We would definitely like to visit Mt. Titlis& Jangfrau region. Kindly advise us for planning the itinerary. Whether we should go for rail passes ?. Our Europe itinerary includes Austria & Germany apart from Switzerland. 3 days each at every place. kindly advise for a cost & value effective itinerary.

Thank You

Hello kochumol,

Lucerne (www.myswissalps.com/lu cerne/activities) is a better base for a Swiss visit than Zurich. A lovely city with plenty to do and only 1 hour from Zurich Airport and easier access to Titlis and Jungfraujoch, but no matter.

Work your way through this “How to choose the best travel pass” (www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass).

And see www.myswissalps.com/ti tlis and www.myswissalps.com/ju ngfraujoch.

Hi kochumol, and welcome to MySwissAlps,

Rockoyser has a valid point, Lucerne is a better base. If you would like to see how much time you will save when traveling from Lucerne to your activities, use the Swiss timetable: www.myswissalps.com/ti metable. You may want to look at the information on this page as well: How to plan your trip.

Hello Rockyostar & Chantal,

Thank You for your response. Even though it is a great idea to stay in Lucerne, now it is late to change the hotel as it is already booked in Zurich for three days.So I am constrained to do the planning from Zurich only.

Hi kochumol,

Sounds like a fun trip! My husband and I just took our son through Zurich & Murren. I actually just wrote a blog post that has details on our travel (things to do/getting around/eating/etc.) -- may prove to be helpful to you!

Have a wonderful time!
