Travel by train between France & Switzerland

Jump to last reply

We have a trip planned this fall & we're looking for a little advice on trains. We fly into Paris on Sept 25 and are immediately hopping on a high speed train for Strasbourg France. We'll spend 2 nights there, then we're heading to Lucerne Switzerland for 3 nights. It looks like we will have to transfer trains in Basel, but only have 6 mins between trains...is that enough time? We were also considering getting off the train and touring Basel for a few hours before continuing on to Lucerne. Thoughts? How far is the walk from the Basel station to some sights to see? Is it worth the hassel? In Lucerne, we're planning a ferry ride to Lake Lucerne. Any recommendations on ferry destinations or know of any special ferry tickets? We wre also thinking of riding the aerial cable car or rack-railroad. After Lucerne, we'll travel back to Colmar France for 2 nights. Then, it's back to Paris for 3 nights & a final train ride to CDG on Oct 6. We may also take some small day trips via trains or bikes from Strasbourg, Lucerne & Colmar. I'm trying to figure out the best ticket options & if we should book any tickets before we leave? Many thanks!
