Hi Arnabghosh,

Let's have a quick look here:

  1. Day 1 is quite long - Whether it is possible is up to you (and when you arrive at Zurich). Use the Swiss railways timetable to plan the trips. Immigration times, I can't say. If there are a lot of people on your flight where visa inspection takes longer than usual I suppose the line up could take awhile. 15 minutes? 45 minutes?
  2. The bus can load luggage on the bottom and you can bring small luggage on-board (back pack etc). It shouldn't be a major issue but how much do you have?
  3. It will take about an hour to the Swiss open air museum from Interlaken - I would expect a 2-3 hour visit?
  4. All the lake cruises are quite popular. At Interlaken you can choose between Lake Thun or Lake Brienzthen compare to Lake Lucerne. I would lean to Lake Thun, but all are nice! I would choose whichever fits your schedule best.
  5. I can't say I know about the Swiss folklore show - perhaps another member has seen it. :)

Hope that helps finalize your plans!

As we r from India and as a tourist and travelling with kid approx luggage weight is 50 kg in total.

Do I need to modify the itinerary?

It isn't a problem Arnabghosh!

The general itinerary seems fine to me.

Just be sure to review my last post for my recommendations and check out all your trips on the Swiss railways timetable to be sure they aren't too long for your family - Day 1 especially.
