12 nights in Switzerland (first time)

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are arriving in Zurich on May 28th for 12 nights departing Basel on June 9th for a river cruise. We will have a Swiss Pass for all travel (no car). We would like feedback on itinerary, lodging and activities. We like to see and do a lot but also have some relaxing time. We don't want to pack too much into 13 days.

Zurich (2 nights) to get over jet lag and see key sights. Zum Storchen for lodging. Any recommended day trips, which might be pushing it for 2 days.

Lucern (3 nights) at Hotel Des Balances or Schweizerhof. Full day trip boat on Lake Lucern (Weggis, Rutli Meadow, Willem Tell); Lucern sights; trip to Mt. Pilatus; other suggestions.

Wengen (3 nights) at Beausite Park Hotel or Hotel Schonegg. Top of Jungfraujoch with stop in Grindelwald; Schilthorn with stop in Murren; discovering waterfalls in Lauterbrunnen--can you do this by walking; Interlaken with lake trip on Thun to see castles (Thun, Hilterfingen, Oberhofen). Is this too much for 3 nights? Should we expand to 4 nights?

Montreaux or Lausanne (3 nights)-need help wth location & lodging. Activities include a possible day trip to Geneva. Is it worth it? Gruyers via the Chocolate trian; Fribourg; Boat trip on Lake Geneva to see Chateau of Chillon; explore Lausanne & Montreaux; possible day trip to Neuchtel and/or Murten.

Basel (1 night) at Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois or a less expensive hotel. See the city sights and depart for river cruise.

We decided that we didn't need to go to the Matterhorn since we will be in BO seeing Jungfraujoch & Schilthorn. Does that seem reasonable?
