I will be reaching Zurich on a Friday early morning by plane. I need to be in Vienna by Sunday night. What are my options?
My initial plan was to explore Zurich and Lucerne Friday and Saturday. Then taking the 8 hour train by Railjet from Zurich to Vienna (that I believe goes through Innsbruck and supposedly very scenic) on Sunday (leaving around 10 am, reaching Vienna around 6 pm).
But I just read up on Glacier Express. Is there any way I can accommodate it?
Are 8 hours going to be tough on the train? Should we stop and spend the night in Innsbruck?
Basically, how would you plan for these 2.5 days. I have always wanted to see the Alps (from a train - comfortably).
Thanks in advance,
