We are visiting Switzerland during the last week of July. We are Family of 3 (2 adults and kid of 7 years). Arrive at Basel on 25th July at 8.15 pm and Departure from Basel 31st July 8.40 pm
Planning to take Swiss travel Pass for 4 days. Is there any other pass that I can take for the balance 2 days or it is worth taking the Swiss pass for 8 days? Do I have to buy each ticket separately for Half Fare Pass? I think that will be bit of a hassle if I have to buy separately for each bus, train boat trip.
I am planning to travel to Lucerne on 25th Night. Is it a good idea to travel to Lucerne on 25th assuming I will be out of the airport by 9 pm or 9.30pm?
I am planning to spend 3 days at Lucerne.
26th July: visit Mt Pilatus, Mt Rigi. Return to Lucerne in the evening
27th July: Visit Zurich and Rhine falls return to Lucerne in the evening
28th July: Visit Mt Titlis. Return to Lucerne and travel to Interlaken in the evening.
29th July: Visit Zermatt/Matterhorn and return to Interlaken in the evening
30th July: Visit Jungfrau and return to Interlaken in the evening
31th July: Cruise at Lake Thun and spend some time at Interlaken. Start from Interlaken at 4pm to Basel.
Is there a way, I can combine Glacier Express and Golden Pass Line with this itinerary?
Is it a good idea to cover the Interlaken side of the trip 1st? I will have to travel to Interlaken on 25th July night. The benefit will be on 31st July I will get more time as the travel time from Lucerne to Basel is less.
Please suggest if I should change something in this itinerary? Will it be too hectic considering we will have a 7 year old kid and some luggage.
