Switzerland - Itinerary help

Jump to last reply

My husband, myself and our two daughters (ages 11 and 9) will be traveling to Europe next summer. I have been mapping out our itinerary and am most unsure on Switzerland as I have never been there. Note Switzerland is sort of our way to get from Austria to France, and I decided to stretch it a little bit to see some of Switzerland, but I know we aren't spending enough time to really see the country.
We will be coming from Salzburg, into Zurich. Getting in around 19:00 (this is late May so sunset should be later?) Wander city and have dinner. Spend night in Zurich
Wake in the am and take train to Luzern. store bags in lockers, walk around a bit, grab lunch - head on to Vevey/Montreux (looking at hotel options). Dinner there and walk around.
Next day - day trip to Zermatt and back. Looks like Montreux - Sion - Zermatt. I have read if it is cloudy you can't see the Matterhorn. I'm wondering if I will know the weather in Zermatt before leaving Montreux? Can you still see some of it? Any thoughts on late May and likely weather? I've read 2.5 hours each way - which is a lot if we can't really see the Matterhorn. Our other option that day is the Chocolate Train (the 9 year old LOVES chocolate). Regardless - back to same hotel for another night in Vevey/Montreux.
Next day - if we did Chocolate Train, just spend morning on Lake Geneva before heading to Paris. If we did Zermatt - head to Broc ourselves and then on to Paris.

Appreciate any thoughts on what the day trip to Zermatt is like and anything else you want to let me know.

Thanks!
