Hi All,

I will be travelling to Switzerland with my husband and 8 year old son. My itinerary is below. I needed to know if its good enough so I son would enjoy. Also planning to take an 8 day swiss pass or should I go for 4 days and take the point to point ticket for the 5th day since we leave from there to Venice.

May 20th- Arrive to Zurich from Paris- plan half day city tour of Zurich

May 21st - Leave for Lucerne and plan to go to Mt Titlis after dumping our bags. Return and explore Lucerne

May 22nd- Visit Mt Rigi and pls recommend if Im doing Mt Titlus should I go to Rigi and anything else we can do tht day

May 23rd - Lucerne to Interlaken via Brienze(for the boat ride) and then visit Ballergen

I also want to visit the chocolate factory in Broc. Any suggestion how I can manage that as we leave for Venice on 24th May. Thanks

Hi Vaneeta,

You need a 4-day Swiss Travel Pass plus a point to point ticket from Interlaken to Venice. As you will travel via Milan I recommend to book that ticket soon, please see here. I would recommend to go straight to your hotel in Lucerne after exploring Zurich. That gives you the option of using the next day more efficient.

Points of sale for tickets are listed on tickets/italy/price. Points of sale for the Swiss Travel Pass are listed on swisstravelpass/price. It makes sense to get both of them from the same website.

Mount Titlis and Rigi are very different, so if the weather is fine on both days it's definitely worth it.

Broc is too far away to fit into your short stay. There's a chocolate demonstration in the museum in Ballenberg, and one in Interlaken as well.

Please see here for hotels:
