Hi Everyone,

I am planning my 5 days / 4 Nights trip to Swiss from Sep 13.

Sep 13: Will reach Interlaken around 12noon (Will I be able to Vist to Jungfraujoch same day)

Sep 14: Stay in Interlaken (Suggestions required for Schilthorn , I dont know whether this is worth spending a day)

Sep 15: Will reach Lucerne (Suggestions required for which I should choose , Mt Titlis, Mt Rigi, Mt Pilatus. I could not understand the proximity of these location to Lucerne)

Sep 16: I will be in Lucerne (Dont know whether to stay in Lucerne or travel to Zurich, my departure airport to Dubai)

Sep 17: Depart to Dubai

Additional info, I have purchased Swiss Pass (4days), & booked hotels for 2 nights in Interlaken and 2 nights in Lucerne. I am flexible to change these hotel bookings if any better suggestions are available.

Thank you Fellow forum members,

Hi Kiran! First of all, I think you should use the timetable. This helps you to find out which trips are doable in one day and what the specific routes are. A map, such as, helps you to locate your day trip destinations. As for your specific questions: you will manage to visit the Jungfraujoch after arrival in Interlaken, but you should only do so if weather is still good. The Schilthorn can be very well visited from Interlaken; it can be found in the timetable as well. You can add a visit to Mürren, Lauterbrunnen and the Trümmelbach falls. All three viewing points near Lucerne (Pilatus is closest to the town) are great. They can be combined with a boat trip over lake Lucerne and/or a visit to the old town. You can easily spend another day in Lucerne, but if a larger city has your interest, you can of course choose to get to Zurich.

If you want to stay close to the airport to catch your flight on September 17, you may appreciate the hotel overview for Zurich airport.
