Itinerary Sanity Check... Switzerland, Austria, Germany

Jump to last reply

Hello! I am planning an active trip for a family of 4 to include hiking in Switzerland, Austria and Germany and would like to know if it will work, if it is too ambitious, too much time on trains, or will be an amazing adventure! :) Here's an overview:

Day 1 to 3 - Arrive in Zurich from the US in the a.m. Take take to Lauterbrunnen. Stay for 3 nights in Grindlewald to recover from jet lag, hike, see Jungfrau area, etc.

Day 4 - 6- Train to Zermatt, hiking hut to hut (haven't worked out the details on the huts yet!) for 3 nights.

Day 7 - Train/bus to Innsbruck

Day 8 - 9 - Hike Tirol area

Day 10 - Train to Munich

Day 11 - 12 - Explore Munich, day trips to castles and Dachau

Day 13 - Depart Munich

We are a busy family and appreciate an active vacation. Our kids are age 8 and 10 so sitting at a cafe and enjoying the view doesn't happen for long... Would love your thoughts on whether this will work! Thank you so much for your time!
