Switzerland - 8 day itinerary need advice and tips

Jump to last reply

We a family of 4 with an older child and a 5 year old son and we have charted out the following itinerary for travel early June.
Day 01 drive to Fribourg and reach Lauterbrunnen in the night. We will probably spend an hour in each location at the most. Do you think this is doable?? Lauterbrunnen is our base for most of the trip.
Day 02 Do paragliding, do attractions like Schynige platte and Harder Kulm and if time permits do Seil Park.
Day 03 train to Jungfraujoch (do ice palace, and would they have dog sledding in June ??), then train to Grindelwald and do the hike to Bachalpsee lake then return and do the gondola ride to First Bahn. Would we have time to even do Glacier Gorge ????
Day 04 - Lauterbrunnen sights like Staubbach and Trummelbach falls, then head to Murren via Grutschalp and do the hike to Murren and then do Schilthorn
Day 05 Wengen and hike to Kleine Schiedegg
Day 06 Drive to Thun, then Bern and Gstaad
Day 07 Drive to Brienz and then Lucerne and drive to Zurich
Day 08 – Spend in Zurich.


Do you think the above is doable? any tips?

We are looking to rent a car and buy a Swiss Half Fare Card. I have heard that parking in cities like Geneva can be very expensive and hard and would appreciate views on whether it makes sense to get a rental car. We are doing primarily to have flexibility.

Since we are having Lauterbrunnen as base, we will be taking train journeys from there, is it easy to find parking at the station?

How cold does it get on top of Jungfraujoch? Do we need Winter Jackets?
Thanks in advance..
