I intend to visit Switzerland for 3.5 days with my family (wife and 16-year old son). Our plan is as below -

(a) We would be arriving in ZURICH on 17-Jun-2012 at 1.00 pm and are scheduled to depart from Zurich on 21-Jun-2012 at 7.00 am.
(b) Hence, we have half-day of 17-Jun and 3 full days (18-20 Jun) in Zurich.
(c) We have already booked our hotel in Zurich for the 3.5 days
(d) Hence, wherever we go, we need to come back to Zurich Hotel at night.

We would like to visit the following places in order of preference (as much as possible duirng the 3.5 days) -

(1) Zurich
(2) Rhine Falls
(3) Lucerne
(4) Mt Titlis
(5) Jungfranjoch
(6) Interlaaken

I have the following questions and need help -

(a) Can someone help to advise how we should plan our visits to cover as much as possible?
(b) Can we take Daily Tours from Zurich to 1 or more of the above places and return to Zurich at night?
(c) If we buy SWISS PASS, then would most - if not all - vists be covered?

Hi Kubalay,

You can best take a look at this map to see where everything is located; then use the timetable to check traveling times. I would do something like this:

  • 17th: Zurich
  • 18th: Lucerne and Titlis
  • 19th: Interlaken and Jungfraujoch
  • 20th: Rhine Falls
Of course the days are exchangeable. The Rhine Falls can be done on a cloudy/rainy day for example. Titlis and Jungfraujoch require clear weather.

A 3-day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass would be the cheapest option for the adults. A 4-day Swiss Saver Pass is only a bit more expensive though, so you may want to pick that one in order to include the 17th as well (to have free entrance to many museums, discounted urban transportation). A 4-day Swiss Youth Pass would be best for your son. Be sure to check these promo codes as well!

Downloadable network maps can be found on the pages I linked to. They show exactly what's covered.

Have fun!
