Switzerland Travel Recommendations

Jump to last reply

My family of four (me, wife, daughter 1 - age 2, daughter 2 - age 1) are planning a trip to India, and want to stop in Zurich on the way there. I have a few logistical questions that may be specific to my situation, and some general questions where I am looking for general guidance. Any help is greatly appreciated!

1. We will have a lot of luggage, 2 car seats, 5-6 large bags, 2-4 cabin bags, 2 strollers. I would not want to carry these around in Switzerland while I travel. I have read that it is possible to leave luggage at the airport in Zurich for a fee. However, I have not been able to find out if there are any limits on the amount of luggage we can deposit at the airport.

2. It is my hope that 4 days (5 nights) are going to give us a substantial amount of time to experience the "culture" of Switzerland. Any itinerary recommendations are very welcome. At this point, we are thinking to spend:

Day 1 - Zurich local sites
Day 2 - Lucerne via train
Day 3 - Interlaken via train
Day 4 - Mount Titlis via train

Given the short duration of time and the two young ones, would there be better/different places that would be recommended?

3. This may be a little gross to ask on a public forum, but, do most forms of long distance public transport - boat, train etc. - have diaper changing stations on board?


Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
