VERY last minute travel plan ...... HELP

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are in Cologne on business until late afternoon of May 11 (Friday), then we have a week off for holidays. I have booked hotel for 3 nights at Paris from May 15, I will be heading home from Paris.
I would like to start with the Rhine river cruise on Sat, then get a rental car to drive to Zurich. I might stay in Zurich but after reading most of the posts here, Lucerne and Interlaken seem to be a better choice for Alpine experience. I basically only have 3 nights (12-14), is driving to Zurich a good idea? or should we just hop on a train? But renting a car for the 3 days is close to USD450 (not that it's any cheaper taking the train!) If taking the train, that would be 3 countries in 5 days?
If I just take the train and to Zurich (1 night) then off to Lucerne / Interlaken (2 nights). Is this a good plan? How far apart is Lucerne to Interlaken?
Any help would be MUCH MUCH appreciated.
