Dear forum members,
I am reaching switzerland in the last week of July. we are a family of 4 with 2 kids aged 4 and 11.
After 1 day in Zurich and 3.5 days in Lucerne, I will be left with 2.5 days in Montreux.
My planned itinerary for Montreux is -
Day 5: Reaching Montreux by 5.30 pm by Golden pass, Check-in and then local sightseeing on Promenade and Chateau.
Day 6: Am confused whether I should visit Zermatt with Matterhorn or should I Instead go to Gstaad/ Les Diablerets with Glacier 3000. Will have already visited Mount Rigi, Titlis and Jungfarujoch by then. (Hopefully with good weather). So am not interested in any more mountain trips. More inclined towards experiencing a quiet village life and scenic beauty.
Day 7: Trip to Broc Fabrique via Montbovon for Maison Cailler chocolate factory followed by Cheese factory demo at Gruyeres and a trip to the chateau there. Evening to Vevey/ Lausanne (either)
Day 8: Check out early morning and go to Geneva. Local sightseeing (Advise sought) with a train trip to Zurich in the afternoon to reach Zurich by 7 pm for the departure flight.
Please guide. Alternate suggestions highly appreciated. Also, the best place to buy chocolates, Lindt or some other.
Thanks a million in advance.
