Switzerland and Paris with a baby. Please suggest itinerary.

Jump to last reply

Hi me and my hubby are travelling to Switzerland and Paris in August with our 2 year old. This is the tentative itinerary we have thought of:

this is how the itinerary looks now:

1. Landing Paris at 7:20am.
2. Paris
3. Paris
4. Take the Golden Pass train route to Montreux, see the Castle and proceed to Geneva. strol around the lake.
5. Geneva- BO (visit UN Building and Cern before leaving. Overnight in Lauterbrunnen or Wengen?
6. Visit Murren or Schilthorn? Overnight in BO
7. Jungfrau which will include wengen, KS and Grindelwald. Overnight in BO
8. BO to Zurich. Visit Rhine falls. Day trip to Lucerne stroll over the Lucerne old town. Visit the dying lion monument. Overnight in Zurich
9. Day trip to Lucerne. Do either Pilatus or Rigi( Any suggestions?) Overnight Zurich
10. 11:45 am Flight from Zurich to Singapore

I have a couple to questions:
1. I am surely doing Jungfray. Which other mountain should i be doing which gives a different experience- Schilthorn/Pilatus/Rigi?
2. Understand Lucerne is a more beautiful place than Zurich, but I have a morning flight from Zurich as such i am thinking of staying at Zurich for two nights and doing day trips to Lucerne. Is that possible?
3. Which pass should i be buying?- HFC OR Swiss saver pass?
4.At BO should i base myself Lauterbrunnen or Wengen?
5.I haven't booked anything other than the flight tickets as such my itinerary is pretty flexible at the moment. Is the allocation of days between different places ok? I mean the overall itinerary is ok? Please suggest changes.

Many thanks!
