Can you please review our Switzerland itinerary (based in Grindelwald) ?

Jump to last reply

Can you please help us review our Switzerland itinerary and make recommendations ?

We are a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 kids ages 10 and 7. We are arriving in Switzerland between Aug 11th - 16th and in Rome from Aug 17th - 20th and leaving to US on Aug 21st.

I have already finalized my Rome itinerary.

Here goes my Switzerland itinerary, the days are interchangeable.

Aug 11th: arrive in Zurich, take a train to Grindelwald where we are based for 5 nights (Hotel Eiger). We are planning to just relax on this day although we arrive in Zurich in the morning, just dealing with jet lag.

Aug 12th: Planning to do the Grindelwald - Mannlichen by cable car and then do the hiking till Kleine Scheidegg. From here we are planning to go up to Jungfrau, do the Ice Palace.
Do you recommend doing the dog sledge here with kids ?

Aug 13th: Hiking around Grindelwald : Planning on taking cable car to First., hiking to the Bachalpsee (1 hr),, and then down to Waldsplitz (another hour), hiking downhill to Bort (downhill about 45 min ), planning to rent Trottibikes (scooters) for a fast, fun trip the rest of the way down to Grindelwald.

Aug 14th: Interlaken and doing Lake Brienz or Lake Thun crusing. May be the biking tour in Interlaken. Here is what I am not too sure, whether to do Interlaken or something else and how far is each one via Train. Which lake is better to do boat ride ?

Aug 15th: Mount Pilatus, via Lucerne. Is there a better way of getting here ? Planning to do the Suspension Rope Park here and spend the day and get back to GW in the night. I have also heard good things about Mt. Titilus. Any suggestions ? Will we still have time to tour around in Lucerne after Mount Pilatus ?

Aug 16th: Leave Grindelwald to Brig to take Glacier express to St.Moritz. Spending the night here and leaving on 17th to Zurich to fly to Rome ! Whew..

We have already purchased the Swiss Pass.

Would appreciate any help and also suggestions for good restaurants around the areas we are covering..

Shubha
