Suggestions for our Trip to Munich and Switzerland in late March

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 5 landing in Munich mid-March for 2-1/2 to 3 days. We are wanting to spend one day visiting castles (Neuschwanstein +), one day in Salzberg as a day trip, then the extra day seeing Dachau and other sites in Munich.

Then we go to Zermatt, Switzerland for 6 days of skiing. We were planning on leaving Munich mid afternoon on the 3rd day after arriving in Munich and stopping in Lucerne for the evening and for the following morning until around lunchtime, then continuing that next afternoon on to Zermatt.

My question is, Is it worth stopping in Lucerne to break up our trip and see this city during the evening and the following morning? Or should we spend a full final day in Munich and just make the Munich to Zermatt trip an all day train ride?

We fly out of Zurich at the end of our trip, so I assume the best way for us to travel, assuming we make the Munich to Zermatt trip in one day. is to get the 5-person Bahn ticket to the border and the Swiss Transfer ticket for the Switzerland ticket from Germany border to Zermatt (inbound) then Zermatt to Zurich (return). Am I right?

And if we decide to break up the trip with a Lucerne overnight stay, what's the best way to book that train ticket for 5 (2 adults, 3 under 18)?
