Switzerland in 6 days? (based in Geneva)

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone! Recently my mother and I decided last minute to take a trip to Switzerland for either 5 or 6 nights in early July. Usually we are very good at organising trips efficiently however because this is such a last minute decision we are struggling a bit to absorb all the information about Switzerland! Therefore I would love to hear some suggestions about some places to go to if we are based in Geneva. We would love to visit Bern, Lucerne, Zurich and Jungfrau but of course with the length of our stay this will be quite impossible!

This is the first draft of our itinerary:

Wednesday - We arrive in Geneva in the morning or afternoon, sightseeing in Geneva
Thursday - Train to Montreux and then the Swiss Chocolate Train excursion with GoldenPass Line
Friday - Sightseeing in Lausanne and then Chateau de Chillon
Saturday - Day trip to Lucerne, possibly go up Mount Pilatus with the Golden Round Journey?
Sunday - Day trip to Bern?
Monday - Off to the airport and home!

Would this be feasible? And is it a good itinerary or are there better places to go? We would love to see the Lavaux vineyards and see possibly some wine production and do a wine tasting but the information on the website is slightly confusing so I'm not sure how to go about this!

Thank you.
