Switzerland , Austria (and Prague? )

Jump to last reply

We are in our mid thirties and have 2 kids 4-6 years old and have traveled extensively in Asia and in New Zealand (pretty much followed and added on to trip done by indiancouple) itinerary and now planning our first trip to Europe.

After reading many posts&trip reports and the LP guides, still not quite sure as to how to plan it. We usually travel independently and don’t take city tours etc..but after reading the reports am wondering whether it will best to take some city tours in Salzburg/Vienna/Prague in order to make the best of the short time we have?.

We have from the 19th JUL to the 5 of august. excluding the first travel day its 17days.

Tentative itinerary (Can fly into either Zurich or Geneva. And fly out of Vienna or Prague)

Luzern – 3 days? - lion monument, william tell route on lake Luzern, Trip to Mt Pilatus (is this recommended? )

Montreux -3days? – chateu di chillion , Lavoux express?? or is the Lavoux boat cruise better, Lousanne and Vevey??

Would like to visit a chocolate factory for the kids is it best to take the chocolate train to Broc what are the other options?

OB - Wengen 4 days (or Lauterbrunnen )– where should we base our selves?
Train to Lauterbrannen,lift to gratschalp, hike to Murren and then to Gimmelweld and lift down to Stechelberg
Lift to Mannlichen,Hike to Kleine Scheidgg and train to Jungfraujoch if weather is good
Walk to staubbach falls and L valley walk to trummelback falls?, Thun and Lake thun boat tour. Train to Grinderwald to hike to Lake Bachalpse?

Zermett (should this be saved for later during winter so that we could do prague in summer or is it better to drop prague and include Zermatt?

Salzburg - 2days
Vienna – 3 days – with a trip to the Wachau Valley

Prague?? - 3days

advise re itinerary , the route and rewarding hikes will be much appreciated.
