My husband and me are planning a five day trip to Switzerland from 9th to 13 October. After going through the myswissalps website we decided on this itinerary.
we are reaching Zurich at 7am, taking the train to Grindelwald. Next day check out in the morning and go to Jungfrau and Trimmed back falls. Take a train to Lucern in the late evening. Next two days in Lucerne. We plan to go to Mt To and take the boat ride on lake Lucerne. Next day early morning take the Bernina express. From there we will proceed to Italy.
We are taking the Swiss travel pass. We were wondering if Grindelwald is a good place to stay or murren or lauterbrunnen is better. We want scenic views, not much of night life.
We are planning to stay at the Jungfrau lodge in Grindelwald. Also hope to see the autumn colors. We are staying in Lucerne for 3 days as the stay works out a little cheaper this way. Any better way to plan the trip? We are interested in making the most of the scenic locales and hoping that the weather will be good. Also please suggest what to do on the first day in Grindelwald. we were initially planning to stay in gimmelwald village the first day but changed as going to Jungfrau the next day and getting to Lucerne would take a long time. any suggestions are welcome.
