Thanks for joining MySwissAlps.com, Pateltushar! We're glad to hear you like our website.

You've certainly included many of Switzerland's highlights in your travel plans. If you focus on the Lucerne region (www.myswissalps.com/la kelucerne) and the Jungfrau region (www.myswissalps.com/ju ngfrauregion), you'll be able to cover most of your destinations without spending too much time on train traveling. Mind that Swissminiature is very far off from these areas: about a 3h00 one-way trip from Lucerne and 5h20 from Interlaken, for example. If I were you, I'd skip it and spend my time in the mountains instead.

Schilthorn and Pilatus are quite different. The Pilatus offers far views; you'll be seeing the somewhat lower mountains of the Lucerne area nearby and the higher Bernese Alps in the distance, whereas the Schilthorn is closer to higher snow-capped mountain peaks. Both are beautiful in clear weather, so it depends on your personal interests. You can best check www.myswissalps.com/sc hilthorn and www.myswissalps.com/pi latus and decide for yourself which one appeals to you most.

On your last day, you will be able to store your luggage the Zurich Airport rail station and pay a short visit to Stein am Rhein or the Rhine Falls (http://www.myswissalps .com/rhinefalls). Return well in time though.
