Hi sruthi,

Lucerne certainly makes a good base for some of your plans. Rigi and Pilatus can very well be visited from this town. The Jungfraujoch would be possible too, although that will be a long travel day. The Matterhorn near Zermatt is too far off; you can check traveling times using the timetable. So you can either skip this, or include another base town if you definitely want to see it. I suggest to visit the Rhine Falls on your arrival or departure day, as they can best be reached from Zurich.

Hotel suggestions for Lucerne can be found at www.myswissalps.com/lu cerne/hotels. Each the attraction pages I linked to describes how to get there, and as mentioned you can use the general timetable too.
