My wife and I have plans to Switzerland for 6 days (12-17 April 2016). Need suggestion for our itinerary below :
Day 1 : Arrive at Zurich Airport (08.30am) and go to Stein am Rhein + Rheinfall (Hotel Zurich)
Day 2 : Explore Luzern(Hotel Luzern)
Day 3 : Go to Interlaken by Golden Pass scenic train (arrive at 09am), and then change train to Lauterbrunnen (arrive at 10am). Visit Schilthorn, Murren, Gimmelwald, Wengen, Maanlichen --> until Sunset 08pm (Hotel Lauterbrunnen)
Day 4 : Back to Interlaken (arrive at 10am), Visit Oberhofen Castle/Lake Thun and Giessbach Waterfall/Lake Brienz (Hotel Interlaken)
Day 5 : Visit Zermatt (arrive at10am), by cogwheel train go to Gornergrat, and by cable car go to Blue Lounge/Blauherd (Hotel Zermatt).
Day 6 : Joining Glacier Express (08.52 am) and get off at Andermatt. Continue to Lugano for Visit : Bellinzona Castle and Parco Ciano.
My question is as follows :
1. Is my above itinerary (especially on day 1, 3 and day 6) realistic/can be achieved each day?
2. Pls advise for the cheapest train tickets from Zurich Airport to Stein am Rhein + Rheinfall.
3. Buy Swiss Travel Pass via online (happy rail/SBB) is need validation at Luzern station or not? (I will used the STP on day 3/Golden Pass train to Interlaken).
4. If the mid April weather can support our activities?
Thank you so much for your advised :-)
