Hi gopher, thanks for posting here and glad to hear you appreciate our forum!
Generally, shops close down during holidays, so I expect quite some stores to be closed on Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday. Try to plan your shopping activities on Saturday. Restaurants, museums, boats and other tourist attractions on the other hand should be accessible, as the Swiss themselves plan leisure activities on those days too. As many towns organize special Easter activities, I don't expect them to feel "deserted". Here are some examples for Zurich and Lucerne:
For lots of pretty outdoor options I recommend you stay a couple of nights in Lucerne and/or the Jungfrau region. Please find information on towns and regions below:
Mind that April is low season, so double check opening dates for the trips you're interested in.
