5 days Swiss,Paris trip with Basel as base location

Jump to last reply

Dear All Fodorites,

We are a group of 5 people (incl 6 yr old kid and my parents).

In first week of May, want to do a Swiss Paris trip in which we would like to visit places like Mt. Titlis, Interlaken Jungfraujoch and Bern/Zurich if possible then move to Paris for 2 days.

I have an option to make Basel as my base location as I have friends residing there at 15 min tram ride from Basel station..

I would like know:

From Basel using Intercity trains, how easy or hectic it would be to do 1-day return trip each to Lucerne+Mt. Titlis, Zurich/Bern .... then 1 or 2 Nights stay in a hotel in Engelberg/Interlaken (for Jungfraujoch).

Having a base location can save us from checking-in/out of hotels with luggage,kid,sr. citizens and some $$ on hotels but definitely the travel time and money spent in commuting,tickets (may procure Swiss family pass- 4 days) is something worth considering.

Do you think it is workable plan or I should actually stay in Lucerne for 2 nights each instead of to-fro from Basel.

My purpose of trip would be more on relaxing and sightseeing, have a kid and parents so adventure sports is not in the to-do list :)

After all these, I would want to go to Paris for 2 nights and then depart for my Country from Paris itself

Eagerly waiting for any suggestions, feedbacks.

Thanks in advance ,
Gaurav
