On the 31st July, my husband and I together with our children (12,15,21 yrs) will be travelling to Switzerland for the first time. I have planned the following itinerary:
31/7: Arrive Zurich airport at 4.45pm train to Interlaken (we already booked our hotels).
1/8: Thun by return train, cruise Brienz. Perhaps stay at Interlaken to watch Swiss National day parade in the afternoon.
2/8 Jungfraujoch (weather permitting)
3/8 Schiltorn and Trummelbach falls or no Schiltorn and see Jungrau towns of Murren, Wengen.
4/8 Leave Interlaken to our hotel in Lucerne via Bern. Leave luggages at the station and tour around Bern until 3pm.
5/8 Golden round trip to Mt. Pilatus
6/8 Visit Swiss Science Technorama in Winterthur. In the afternoon either we proceed tothe Rhinefalls or walk around Zurich and return to Lucerne in the evening.
7/8 Mt. Titlis. Afternoon at Museum of Transport.
8/ 8 Leave Lucerne in the morning to Zurich station. Since our flight is at 5.30pm we will leave luggages at zurich train station and stay at zurich then we catch the train to zurich airport.
After doing a lot of calculations it turned out that the half fare card together with the family card is cheaper for us then the Swiss Pass. Are there any other passes I should consider? Do you think it is a very busy schedule? Should I leave or add something? Where I live our summers are very hot and we don't have any mountains. If the weather is not good on the mountains what other possibilities are there? I do not want my grown up children to get bored.
Thanks in advance.
