Hello folks,

We are a family of three people that includes a 3 year old and we are planning to travel in Switzerland in first week of May (May 2nd-May 6th).

Could you please take a look and provide better suggestions or feedback on the trip to make it more enjoyable and efficient ?

We will be coming in from Paris. We have not yet decided whether to fly in or take the train.

Day 1- May 2nd : Paris to Interlaken : Interlaken to Schilthorn and then to funicular to Harder Kulm

Day 2- May 3rd - Interlaken to Grindewald to Jungfraujoch and return back

Day 3- May 4th- Interlaken to Lucerne in the morning ; Lucerne Lake and Lucerne city neighborhood

Day 4-May 5th - Lucerne to Mt. Titlis or Mt Pilatus and return to Lucerne. I haven’t decided which one to do, suggestions or thoughts about this.

Day 5-May 6th - .We have this day available.

Thanks in advance. your help is truly appreciated.

Hi RockOyester,

Thank you for your reply.

Without a car available, how do we get to Lucerne Lake ? Is Uber an option in Lucerne ?

thanks

Suhail

"Without a car available, how do we get to Lucerne Lake?"

Depends where you are staying. The Lake Lucerne ferries depart from right out front of the Lucerne main station.

Hi Suhail,

Day 1 is very long. Have looked into the train schedules to see about timings? Are you leaving Paris quite early? Also when choosing a rail pass, note that some mountains are free or discounted more than others.

IE Pilatus & Titlis are 50% off with the Swiss Travel Pass but Rigi is free. Schilthorn is also free with that rail pass.

Oops. I missed that Schilthorn AND Harder Kulm on top of Paris to Interlaken. Definitely ambitious. Maybe Harder Kulm at a pinch.
