Hi Siddhigoel and welcome to MySwissAlps!

  1. I think you have a very nice itinerary!
  2. Just be aware of weather and how quickly it changes (don't count on the forecast until the day before and be prepared for cold and snow in the mountains!
  3. Oooh tough call - I might lean towards Mt. Rigi over Mt. Pilatus unless you plan on doing some skiing? Read through the pages I linked to help you decide as well.
  4. Again, read though these pages to help you decide, its a personal decision, though I think either is quite nice I might say Lauterbrunnen over Murren.
  5. Nope, I think Montreux is a great town!

I hope this helps, let me know if you have more questions!

Hi Siddhigoel,

Just wanted to add that you'll be there in low season, which means that not everything is going to be open. The Ballenberg open air museum will not open until April 13. The Trümmelbachfälle should open early April, but depending on the weather, so no guarantee. High altitude hiking trails will not be accessible yet.

Still, there will be plenty left to see, so no worries!
