Me and my wife are planning to visit Switzerland in May this year.
What I needed was some help on determining what would be the best way to book and plan my trip in terms of the train reservations and spending days in different locations in Switzerland.
My overall plan is to visit Zurich, Lucerne, Interlaken and Jungfrao.
I will be coming in from Paris by train and would like to leave by train to Venice.
So my overall concern is to how to plan this trip from Paris --> Zurich / Lucerne / Interlaken / Jungfrao --> Venice
My idea so far looks like:
(a) Incoming to Zurich (23rd May) (Train)
Now I have heard, that it is recommended to take the day train from Paris to Zurich to enjoy the natural scenic beauty on the way. Is it true?
Or would an overnight train be more recommendable to avoid losing valuable tourist time by travelling during the day?
In either case, day or night, where and which train should I book from Paris to Zurich?
(b) Zurich / Lucerne / Interlaken / Jungfrao (23,24,25,26,27,28)
I have about anything between 5-6 days to spend for these locations and would like to know how to plan them in terms of travelling and the stay to minimize the hectic running around type travel.
(c) Outgoing to Venice (28th Night / 29th Morning) (Train)
What is recommended in terms of travelling to Venice..
Either take the train from Zurich or from Interlaken or any other place?
Day train or Night train?
So basically incoming from Paris and outgoing to Venice needs to be kept in mind while planning Zurich / Lucerne / Interlaken / Jungfrao visits ....
Can anyone shed some light :-)
Thanks in advance !
