I will be arriving at the Zurich airport 3 hours later than my adult daughter in a couple of weeks, and our itinerary is to take a train to Lucerne for a few hours, then on to Lauterbrunnen where we will stay for 10 days. I plan on meeting her at the fat blue angel at the train station downtown. Please advise me on which of the following would make the best sense:
#1 Purchase our half fare card and ticket to Lauterbrunnen at the Zurich airport, take the train to downtown, browse at the shopping mall, and take a selfguided tour of Zurich. Continue on to Lucerne for a few hours visit, then to Lauterbrunnen.
#2 Take the train from the airport to the train station downtown, purchase the half fare card and ticket to Lauterbrunnen there, after touring Zurich for a few hours. Continue on to Lucerne for a few hours, then to Lauterbrunnen.
I am assuming that with a Zurich to Lauterbrunnen one way ticket with a half fare card, I can stop in Lucerne for a few hours before continuing on to Lauterbrunnen. We also plan on sending our backpacks ahead onto Lauterbrunnen so we don't have to carry them as we are doing some sight seeing along the way.
Thank you for any advice you can render me.
