I have been following various discussions on this forum for last few days. It has been a great help to me in chalking down my itinerary for 9 days in Switzerland in 3 rd week of May. Travelling with my husband and 11 years and 8 years kids
Flying in and out of Zurich
Zurich to Grindelwald by train
Stay for 4 days in Grindelwald in Chelet
(We do not have big plans for Grindelwald. We basically want to have feel of a small swiss town. Things to do consist of- visit Trummelbach Falls, Interlaken, Visit small towns around like Murren, Wengen, Do paragliding or helicopter ride, take few trails for hiking) With 2 kids we prefer staying in Grindelwald rather than smaller towns like Wengen/Murren.
Grindelwald to Lucerne by train
Stay for 3 days in Lucerne.
Things to do – Mt. Titlis, Mt. Rigi, Chocolate factory
Lucerne to Zurich by train
Stay for 1 day in Zurich
Things to do – difficult to decide what to be given priority in a limited time of 1 day. Need suggestions at this point
Zurich to Chur to catch Bernina Express: route Chur to Lugano
Stay overnight in Lugano
Lugano to Zurich to catch the flight back home
Need inputs and suggestions on overall itinerary if any
Can someone suggest good trails in and around Grindelwald (easy to moderate trails keeping in mind my 2 kids).
would like to know how is the weather in May around Grindelwald,Mt. Titlis,Mt. Rigi
Want to visit cheese factory. Would appreciate suggestions
We are planning to catch Bernina express from Chur. This starts in the morning around 8.30. Is it possible to start from Zurich the same morning by one of the local trains and get connected to Chur for BE? In this way we can omit staying in Chur the previous night.
