Hi ,

We are 2 adults and 1 kid visiting Lucerne on 15th Nov till 19th . what can we do to best utilize our time. we wanted to go to Jungfrau but seems it will be tricky. where can we touch the snow nearby. would welcome suggestion on visiting the same.

Any itinerary for 4 days would be helpful. We just want to limit our self to Interlaken/lucern region only and have no plans for big cities. Country sides would be our interest area . Also I will drop the car in Lucerne and planning to buy Swiss travel Pass for 3 days with family pass. any advice on contrary would also be welcome.

Thank you in advance

Hi Ash,

You can touch snow at Mount Titlis too, but unfortunately it's closed from November 7 to 18, so you'll only have a chance to go up on your last day. Mount Pilatus and Rigi may have snow, but you'll have to check while there as it's not winter yet so no guarantees. You'll find many suggestion on things to do on the Lucerne page.

Your Swiss Travel Pass can be purchased online and printed at home so you won't have to spend time at a ticket window in Lucerne and use it right away. Please see the link for details.

Hi Ash-

<<" we wanted to go to Jungfrau but seems it will be tricky.">>

Getting to the Jungfrau and back from Luzern is not tricky, but it is a very long day. It becomes tricky if you wish to have clear weather for great to make several days available....but if you want to touch the snow, you should be able to do it on any day, as far as I know.

I'd ask Arno or Annika to confirm that.

If true, all you have to do is schedule a train trip using the timetable, and pay for it. metable ngfraujoch ngfraujoch/tickets

In November, it is likely that there will be few tourists, so that you will find it easy to get on a train for the last leg from Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfraujoch.

Tickets are not cheap.
