I am traveling to Switzerland with my family (Mom, Dad, Sister and my spouse) in May-June.
My mom(57) and dad(60) are bit old to go very long distance walking (half to one hour walk is not a problem). So I am really looking for an itenery that would cover major tourist spots avoiding much exertion for them. I have bought Swiss Pass for 8 days.
We are arriving to Zurich 19:35 on 30 May 2012.
From there we plan to go straight to our Hotel (Lions lodge) in Lucern by train and relax.
Day 1: Leave early morning at 8am and visit Rhine falls. Come back to Lucern by late after noon and do a city tour of Lucern.
Day 2: Visit Mount Titlis from Lucern (any thing else that we can cover on this day?) and back to Lucern.
Day 3: Check out from Lucern to Interlaken by train. Check-In at hotel Villa Sonnenhof in interlaken preferably by 11am.
Leave hotel at Interlaken by 1pm and go to Thun from Interlaken in cruise. Visit Beatus (Dragons) caves on lake thun. Then visit to Bern city, view old town and back to interlaken in train.
Day 4: If wether is clear then Visit Jungfraun from interlaken via Lauterburnen. On the way back go through grindelwald village and Murren. Visit Trumelbach falls from Murren. If time permits visit Schilthorn and Stechelberg in late evening.
Day 5: Take golden pass scenic train from Interlaken to Montreux. Visit to Chillon Castle and back to Interlaken via Montreux.
Day 6: Do Adventure sports like sky diving and bunji jump for me my spouse and sister. Later in evening take a Lake breinz indian dinner cruise (only available on 5th June 2012)
Day 7: Leave from Interlaken by Golden Pass train to Geneva. Take train to paris from Geneva at 12:29pm.
I do not know the exact timings for the trains yet and also how to reach each of these places, i.e. the train/bus staions which i need to go to.
Would appriciate if you can help me with how to reach to these places in easiest ways.
Also I need to know if this is a doable trip with my parents. Or if I should remove or add any other places in this.
