Good morning everyone
3 weeks until we leave for Switzerland, so I'm getting down to the nitty gritty now.I just have a couple of random questions and checking of my plans for you all.
1. Can you please advise for the route Locarno to Domodossola to Zermatt is the earliest bus for the section Domodossola to Brig, over the pass at 10.50am. I would like to take this option but it appears that the earliest bus leaves Domodossola too late at 10.50am. We only have 1 night in Zermatt so looking like we will take the train the whole way and that way we can arrive in Zermatt at 12.51, rather than 2.51.
2. We are planning to walk from Rotenboden to Riffelalp to Riffelberg and then on to Sunnegga, and then down by the underground funicular! so really want to have maximum time in Zermatt and allow that first afternoon and the next morning as a back up to try and fit this walk in. Hope the weather plays ball! Hope I'm not being too ambitious with this walk, looks easy/medium on paper. But it does seem if we get too pooped there is always a handy cable car to hop in! 3-4 hours about our timeframe for walks.
3. Mt Tiltlis. Train, cable car , bus to Sarner to Stockalp to Melchsee-Frutt and walk to Engstlensee and take cable car to Jochpass and down to Trubsee, up to Mt Titlis and back to Trubsee and walk and gondola down to Engleberg. Sound Ok?
4. On our day from Zermatt to Murren (7 train changes ) i am going to express the luggage ahead. Can you please tell what time the Murren train station closes? I can't see it on the SBB site anywhere.
5. This one for Slowpoke who gave me much advice a few months back when I was obsessing over the Urmiberg gondola. We are going to boat to Vitznau, cog wheel to walk Rigi Kulm, walk to Rigi Kaltbad, to Rigi First, walk along the Felsenweg to Schild, to Unterstetten along the Seeweg to Scheidegg. Cable car to Krabel to Arth Goldau. 3-4 hours I hope?Train back to Luzern via Zug, very scenic wee trip I've read. Maybe even detour up Zugberg after reading a post last week. But there is also the option to continue on to Brunnen and the Urmiberg gondola if we have the energy.
Have a lovely day and thanks for taking the time, I hope, to read this
