I would really appreciate your help/suggestion on some of the questions I have about our itinerary in Switzerland. I have to tried to ask my question in italics and am afraid they are quite a number.
We will be in Switzerland from 25th August to 4th September. We arrive at Zurich on 25th afternoon chk into our hotel which is near Shilcity. We plan to walk around Aldstadt. Is there anything in particular we should try to cover?
We are opting for 8 days Swiss rail Pass. We are two adults and one child (10 years).
-Can we buy the swiss rail pass in Zurich. Will we get the family card also so that we don’t have to buy the pass for our son? Is the cost same when bought online or at the train station/airport?
We do city tour on 26th morning. Afternoon we would like to go to Rhine falls.
-How can we get to Rhinefall and back. Can it be done in half a day and what else can we cover while in Rhinefall area in half a days time?
On 27th We will take the train to Lucerne in the morning after breakfast and drop luggage at the hotel and go to one of the mountain tops. We are there for three nights. I would like to cover the following
4. Interlaken –JungfrauHoch
My question is which two of the first three I can do in one day so that I have full day to spend in Interlaken and do Jungfrauhoch? I have three days and four sites to cover.
On 30th we leave for Zermatt from Lucerne on Glacier express.
How do we go to Chur (starting point for the Glacier express) from Lucerne?
We will be doing Kleine Matterhorn.
What do you suggest we can do besides that? We can manage light hiking.
Where would it be best to do a boat ride covered by our swiss rail pass?
Can we reserve one day from Zermatt for Interlaken and if so what is the best route to take?
On 2nd September we are going to Geneva. We have two nights in Geneva.
Any suggestions for sightseeing Geneva?
Also we are planning to pick up a cuckoo clock from SwZ. which is the best place to buy it from in terms of price and money. Could you suggest a particular shop in any of the towns?
Thanks and cheers
