I'm travelling to Switzerland between 18-26 August from Cologne. I'm planning to make Lauterbrunnen as the base for first 4 days and Lucerne as the base for last 4. Below is a draft itinerary of my activities:
18 Aug: Arrive from cologne and explore the Lauterbrunnen valley
19 Aug: Depending on weather, Schiltorn and Mürren
20 Aug: Schyniegge Platte
21 Aug: I was keen on visiting Aletsch Glacier. Will this be too much travel for 1 day including return?
22 Aug: Shift to Lucerne. Do Rhine falls-Stein am Rheim
23 Aug: Mount Titlis
24 Aug: Cover parts of gothard panaroma express and glacier express by the below route:
Lucerne - Göschenen (Gotthard Panorama Express), Göschenen - Andermatt (cogwheel train), Andermatt - Zermatt (Glacier Express).Take a fast train back.
In this case do I just have to experience the panaromic views through the train or is it also about getting out and exploring at stops? Also will this one day trip make it too hectic?
25 Aug: Day trip to Montreux. Visit Chateau de chillon, Chocolate factory, Chaplins world etc.
26 Aug: Explore lucerne and back to cologne.
Please validate and give suggestions for the itinerary and asked questions.
Thanks a lot!
