Our family will be traveling to Switzerland in early May. My husband is attending a conference in Basel. We did some research and put together this itinerary for the 2nd part of our trip:
May 6th- Basel- Lausanne
May 7th- Explore the city. Go to Gruyere & Broc.
Head to Zermatt in the evening.
May 8th: Explore Zermatt
May 9th: Take Glacier Express to Andermatt
Then Gothard Panorama Express train to Lucerne (staying 4 nights)
Go to Mt Pilatus in the afternoon ??
May 10th: Day trip to Jungfraujoch
May 11th: Mt. Titlis in the morning
May 12th: Free
Head to Zurich in the evening (flying home on the 13th).
We're considering another alternative (if the weather permits) on the 8th:
Take the Glaceir Express to Brig.
Then Brig to Jungfraujoch via Grindelwald. Otherwise, we would be making a day trip to Jungfraujoch from Lucerne on another day.
We're planning on purchasing the Swiss Travel Pass for our entire stay. I was wondering if trips to some of these excursions could be purchased on the same day. I don't want to commit so far in advance and risk missing an excursion due to bad weather.
