1 week in Switzerland - 5 adults 2 children (4 and 2 yrs old)

by /bio/steph03 »

Hi, we are planning for our highly anticipated 1 week holiday in Switzerland. We are travelling there mid June.  There are so much to see, and I felt so overwhelmed looking at all the recommendations. We are travelling in a group of 5 adults and 2 children (4 and 2 yrs old). We have only booked  our flight ticket so  far. Appreciate if someone can review and provide suggestions to improve my itinerary.. thanks!  

  Day 1, Saturday- Land at Basel airport @ 10am . Drive to Interlaken, explore the area, Lake Thun, Neiderhorn.(stay in Interlaken for 4 nights?)   Day 2 - drive up to .. Murren, Gimmewald, Lauterbrunnen. What should we do in the evening?    Day 3- Take Early Morning ticket to Jungfraujoch. Back to Kleine Schedegg for lunch. Explore Wengen and Grimdelwald    Day 4- Day trip to Lucerne. Explore Lucerne   Day 5 - Drive to Lugano. (stay in Lugano) - Should we do this instead of visiting some other places, Zermatt?    Day 6- Drive to Montreux and explore the area (stay in Montreux)   Day 7 - Drive to Bern. Stopping by Gruyere. explore Bern's Old Town (stay in Bern)   Day 8- Drive to Basel, Flight @2pm Basel airport   We will be renting a car, as there is 5 adults and 2 children (4 yrs and 2 yrs). I just think it is much cheaper to drive given we are a big group, and with two young children, it's probably easier...    Please review, recommend and help me plan this trip better.    Should we do Mt Pilatus or are they quite similar to Jungfraujoch given we will be spending 2 days in the mountains. Are there any pass that we should get, given we will be going up to the mountains in Jungfrau..   Thanks in advance for all your help and suggestions! Ideally I would like to finalise and go ahead with all the car/room booking as soon as possible.    Thank you very much again!
