Hi All,

Thank you very much to all of you for all your valuable suggestions. After checking the feasibility and other things, I decided not to be too greedy to visit all the places and so I dropped Zurich from my tour. and suggested by everyone I would to like to spend time in enjoying scenic beaty rather than the journey.

As of now, this is my plan..
Will be reaching Geneva on 28th night. Will take a train to Interlaken on 29th morning and spend upto afternoon there and take rest in Interlaken on 29th by visting any other places worth seeing.
Next day 30th morning will go to Zermatt, check some beatiful mountain peaks there.
On the third day 1st morning go to Lucernt, check some possible important locations there and come back to Geneva and take a chance of seeing night life there and take a flight back on 2nd morning.

Please give me suggestions if this sounds goos.
Also can anyone of you suggest the accomodation for this plan..

Thanks again for your suggestions

I think that you are still overdoing it. I would suggest to pick TWO destinations and enjoy them. The good thing about Switzerland is that it is small and there are three very different areas, with their own cultures. Geneva is in French speaking Switzerland, Luzern (Or Lucerne) and Interlaken are in German speaking switzerland and Lugano is in Italian speaking switzerland. So pick one French and one German speaking area and concentrate on them. Between Luzern and Interlaken, I would suggest Luzern. Frankly, I don't understand why so many people go to Interlaken, except that it is close to many mountains and ski resorts. But to me, it is not a particularly interesting city. On the otherhand, Luzern is absolutely beautiful. We live in Zurich and while I have been to Luzern many times, we just visited again last week and I was again impressed by how pretty it is. We have already written about luzern in our blog and will soon be adding info, photos and videos to our -snip

I suggest to have a look at train times between your destinations (I assume you will travel by train?) and be a bit more realiztic.

Go to Bernese Oberland and Jungfrau region.
I agree that there is no guarantee on weather, but if you are lucky, there is plenty to do and see for 4 days.

We made our first trip to Switzerland in August and the memories are just gorgeus.
