Hi all,

TGIF! Bumping up the thread and hoping our experiences will continue to be useful to travelers!

Besides reading about our Bali trip when we were (much) younger, also check out our 5 Steps We Take In Choosing Travel Accommodation here! Hopefully this will help you decide which are the best accommodation places for your trips!

Is this doable (traveling end of March)?

Day 1: Arrive in Interlaken by afternoon by train from Paris (Paris - Basel - Interlaken OR direct from Paris to Interlaken)
Day 2: Jungfrau
Day 3: Morning stroll in Interlaken. Checkout. Travel to Luzern
Day 4: Mt Rigi (since Mt Pilatus might still be closed)
Day 5: Take 10am~ train from Luzern to Milan

What would be a good swiss pass to purchase?

:Later,

Going over on 3rd Apr for a week on my own. I'm only bringing 200 CHF cash (didn't want to waste my pounds). Do their ATMs use 6 digit pin and for credit card, do they allow swipe and sign? (or if its chip and pin, is it 6 digit)

Also, can I buy the Swiss pass direct from the airport? I'm arriving pretty late around 10pm local time on Good Friday, I'm afraid manned booths might be closed.

HIHI,

Im going to Swiss from Paris.
I will be arriving in Geneva so we intend to take a train to Bern where my hotel is(interlaken west)
After that, we intend to hike around and our itinerary would be like from interlaken to lucerne then maybe back to interlaken n luterbrene and if got extra cash we can go to jungfrac.

Should we buy the swisspass in Singapore?

sorry to hijack this thread.

I'm spending 2 nights in Lucerne and 2 nights in Interlaken.

Know that this question has been asked alot of times, but still... Mount Titlis or Mount Jungfraujoch?
Kinda stuck between this 2.

Hmm... where you are coming from if you're going to Mt. Titlis or Jungfraujoch?

Mt Titlis is near to Lucerne. Jungfraujoch is nearer to Interlaken.

You mean you can choose only 1 between the 2?

:Later,
I'm coming from Zurich, to Lucerne first, then Interlaken.
At the moment, I can only choose 1 to go to, if there are other (more sight-worthy) places to explore in the two cities i.e. Lake Lucerne, Harden Kulm, Trummelback Falls etc?

I see. So you're choosing between the 2 only.

I've only been to Jungfraujoch & Mt Rigi so not sure how Mt. Titlis is. But we had more fun doing Mt Rigi than Jungfraujoch, where we had a bit of altitude sickness (a bit of lightheadedness and a bit of difficulty in breathing). I guess the various transportation to and from Mt Rigi is a big factor to the fun. Not to mention we didn't have to pay anything for Mt Rigi with our Swiss Travel Pass (whereas we had to pay a supplementary fee of 132 CHF for Jungfraujoch).

:Later,

Care to share what forms of transportation to Mt Rigi? Buying Swiss Pass as well so might as well.

Lucerne to Vitznau via boat. Then a cogwheel train up to Rigi Kulm.

Heading back to Lucerne, we took the same cogwheel train but dropped off about midway, at Rigi Kaltbad. Then took the cable car downhill to Weggis. Finally, hopped on the boat to Lucerne.
