We wud b travelling from Paris to Geneva(booked train tickets) on 7th, spend the day in Geneva, reach Montreux by late evening.
8/5-cheese factory at gruyere & chocolate factory at broc, evng stroll in montreux
9/5-chillon castle & lavaux vineyards
10/5-zermatt-trip to Matterhorn
Travel to lucerne on 11th taking Golden Pass route
Plan to visit Mt Titlis, Pilatus, Chapel Bridge, Transport Museum & boat ride on d lake during 3 full days in lucerne
leave for Zurich airport on 15/5 morning for flight back to India
My queries are :
1) will it b worth going to Zermatt as glacier paradise wud b closed till 11/5 for maintenance work
2) after reading the forum, seems grindlewald & surrounding areas r worth a visit too..shud v skip staying at Montreux & stay at Grinlewald instead, keeping Lucerne itinerary as planned ?
3) I wud b travelling with my husband & 11 yr old daughter. She is keen to visit choc & cheese factory. In case, v stay in grindlewald, is it possible to plan a day trip to Gruyere & Broc from there ?
4) any idea if the cog wheel to pilatus will open by May 12 or 13...again is it worth making a visit to pilatus if cogwheel is not operational or trip to rigi wud b better ?
