We are stopping over in Switzerland on our way from Paris to Milan. We are staying two nights in Zurich and we leave on the third day on the Bernina Express. I am well aware that this is very little time, but its what we have to work with. The plan so far:
Arrive in Zurich HB at 2:50 pm
Get to hotel and check in
Walk around the lake and see the old town until dinner time
Dinner and Rest
Train to Luzern and this is where my questions lay. We will have a saver day pass for this day. I am wondering if something like this is feasible:
Arrive in Luzern and see: Historic Wooden Bridges, Lion Monument, Old town.
After lunch (~1:00 pm) take the ferry to Vitznau, and then cable car and train to Rigi Kulm
Walk down to either Kaltbad or Schneidegg
Train back to Zurich (Depart around 6:30 pm)
I have several questions:
1) For Luzern is this a reasonable itinerary?
2) What order should I see the listed sites in order to avoid backtracking if I am arriving by train from Zurich?
3) Have any people in the over 60 crowd done the hike from Rigi Kulm to Schneidegg and can tell you how you found it ? No mobility issues, just not as young...
4) Finally, anything I might have missed and any food suggestions?
