1st trip to switzerland in March. Need help for initial plan

Jump to last reply

Hi, we are a group of three gals in our early 30s and will be flying into Zurich in the beginning of March for 71/2 days. No Skiing experience but would love to try some snow sledge. Planning on getting a 8 day Swiss card for my rough plan below. Please advice whether this is the best card for our itinerary below.

Day 1 (thu) Reach zurich airport at 1.45pm. Travel by train to Lucerne with our luggages. Estimate to reach Lucerne at 4.30 pm or 5 pm. Guess its gonna be dark at around 6.30pm in March. Dump our luggage at hotel and try to walk around the old town or visit the famous dying Lion or the kapell bridge. Anything we can do when it gets dark?

Day 2 (fri) Rise early to take the Golden Round Trip to Mt Pilatus (IF the weather is good). To go by boat. Then back to Lucerne to collect our luggage and catch the Golden Pass train to Interlaken.

Have not decided whether to stay at Interlaken or lauterbrunnen. Read loads of good review for lauterbrunnen but our concern is that interlaken has more choices and cheaper hostels/dorms.

Once decided on our base (interlaken or lauterbrunnen, much depending on the accommodation), we will be staying there for 6 nights.

Day 3-7 (5 days) No specific/ in particular order, pretty much depending on the weather.

1 day to Lake Thun, town of thun
2 days to visit Jungfrau, wengen, murren and grindelwald
1 day trip to zermatt, Gornegrat
1 day to Bern and Friburg

Day 8 Travel to Montreux, Vevey - Chateu of Chillon. Have not decided whether to stay at montreux or Vevey.

Pls advice as for Day 9, we will be travelling to London and ends at Paris for 6 days.

Will this Itinerary be too rush? And is it advisable for us to visit 3 mountains (Pilatus, Jangfraujoch and Gornegrat) since we don't know how to ski and we r not sure on the weather.
