Switzerland in August for a family of 11 with 2 seniors..

Jump to last reply

Hello All

Based on a past trip to Switzerland with an amazing itinerary courtesy Fodors.com , I am looking to plan another one to the same area with our parents, both 60+ and 2 kids , 8 & 11 and then the rest in the middle age groups.

Day 1 - Birmingham to Zurich and then to Interlaken/Grindelwald by nightfall. Zurich day tour.
Day 2 - Visit the Jungfrau + anything else that can be clubbed in.
Day 3 - Visit Trummelbach Falls and then to Lucerne for the evening
Day 4 - Via Alpnachstad to Pilatus on the rack railway
Day 5 - Open , ideally paragliding in Lucerne if the weather permits
Day 6 - Lucerne to Zurich and back to the blighty!

Given that the days will be much lighter in August, I can look to club the paragliding at Grindelwald and catch a couple of places around Lucerne or get back to the UK Day 5 evening.

It would be great to get some feedback on this, alongwith tweaking the travel dates and places to get the maximum out of the week in there.

For the duration , what would be an advisable travel plan ? Using a 4 day Swiss Pass ? Anything else..

All suggestions are more than welcome and I thank you for that.

Cheers
Dharmesh
