8 Day trip to Swiss and France

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, urgently need your suggestions to plan my first ever trip to Europe. Please find below the tenative details of my trip and things I have taken into consideration. Accordingly feel free to fill me in with your revered advices.

Kindly note - I will be travelling with my wife.

I have 27th June to 5th of July to plan my trip. Broadly I am flying in on 27th (London to Zurich) and flying out on 5th July (from Paris)

Jun 27th (Sat) - Plan to fly to Zurich early morning. Need to decide if I should stay over for the night or directly headover to Interlaken for the night.
Filler - Heard Few things like visit to choc factory/walk around the city chapel or river can be done in few hours. If there is anything else worthwile to do around then I can stay over for the night and leave for Interlaken/Murren next day.

27th night/28th morning to 30th - Planning to stay at some beautiful hill top budget hotel (3*)/ backpackers/ some acco booked through airbnb, for next 2-3 days. Need to plan this in more detail
Fillers - Plan to goto Jungfrau. Also look forward to do one of those countryside trek. Not sure if the costly sport activities such as diving/gliding/etc. will fit the budget. Other than that not quite sure how to spend the time most effectively (Suggestions pls!)

1st July - I have whole of this day to kill
Fillers - If possible wish to do one of those panoramic train tour such as Glacier/Golden pass etc. Someone suggested Bern has very beautiful valley landscape (change from the hilly terrain near Interlaken)

2nd July - Plan to visit Paris. Either can take the night train(to save time, hopefully will get reservation and cost difference is not huge) or travel early morning from Geneva/Bern/etc.
For next 3 days will be in Paris 2-5.

Fillers - . I am thinking of doing the regular - Eiffel, Louvre, D'Orsay, Disney(1 day), River siene tour, city bus tour. Kindly suggest whether they seem fine or I can better plan it in the 3 days of stay in Paris.

Thanks a ton. Kindly let me know if you need any other necessary details

Cheers.
