Hello Friends,

I am planning to finalised my Swiss itineary but almost confused with what all to see (we are husband and wife with one Kid).

It is 3 night 4 day trip, Landing at Zurich and Flying out from Geneva.

I have planned like :

Day 1: Reach Zurich and travel to interlaken (I will be staying here for all 4 days)

Afternoon visit Murren and come back

Day 2 : Go to Lucerene and then to Jungfrau , return to Lecerene and spend evening before back to interlaken

Day 3, : Visit to Mt Pilatus to Titlis ( not able to decide). Would also want to do ride in Glacier train

Day 4: To Geneva Through GPL.

Could you please suggest if this itneary looks good, should we include any thing else which I must have miss..

Should we take travel pass or half travel card

Regards

Sandy

Hi Sandy and welcome to MySwissAlps!

You'll want to use the Swiss railways timetable to plan out your trips and see how the travel times are and if they work for you: https://www.myswissalp s.com/timetable

Day 2 really doesn't make sense unfortunately. It is 2 hours to Luzern, then 2 hours back to Interlaken, then 2 hours to Jungfraujoch and then 4 hours to go back to Luzern in the evening?

You'll want to just go to Jungfraujoch on this day I think (https://www.myswissalp s.com/jungfraujoch). Maybe do a boat trip on Lake Thun in the afternoon or evening if you choose: https://www.myswissalp s.com/boatlakethun

On Day 3 you could visit either mountain (Titlis or Pilatus) and then after go to Luzern before heading back to Interlaken that night.

Hi Sandy!

I'm afraid you won't be able to include the Glacier Express in your plans. It's too far off from Lucerne/Interlaken where you'll be staying: https://www.myswissalp s.com/glacierexpress/g ettingthere. It is possible to incorporate this trip (e.g.: day 3: Lucerne > Chur > Glacier Express to Zermatt, day 4: Zermatt > Geneva), but then you'd have to give up on other plans.

For maximum flexibility, the 4 day Swiss Travel Pass would be a good fit: https://www.myswissalp s.com/swisstravelpass. The Swiss Half Fare Card may turn out to be a bit cheaper, but that depends on your finalized itinerary: https://www.myswissalp s.com/swisshalffarecar d.

Jungfrau you need more than an afternoon. First to get up to the top and then enjoying the view up there. Jungfrau is easier from Interlaken then Luzern. Need a clear day for Jungfrau to really appreciate it. Took us a whole day.

Took us a whole Day on Mt Titlus just getting to it and viewing even though it was cloudy that day.
