Hi koyel2308

With only four days I would choose one base only. Lucerne would be great (especialy in April) as there are so many excursions you can do from here - see www.luzern.com and Top Questions about Lucerne (right side of your actual screen). There is even a lot to do if the weather would not be as perfect as we all hope for you.

Instead of Jungfraujoch you could visit Mt. Titlis - www.titlis.ch - which is by far not similar but also a great glacier experience.

If you would stay at Lucerne, you could take the train to Basel and the TGV (fast speed train) to Paris from there (TGV takes three hours).

For all public transport timetables, fares and other information look at www.sbb.ch/en

Happy planing

Hi koyel2308

You will need to do the maths and it depends where you would like to visit if a Swiss Saver Pass would be helpfull or if point to point tickets will be more economical. You can find the fares at the SBB website and the railpass information on www.swisstravelsystem.ch

For your way to Paris, the Swiss Pass would cover until Basel. From Basel to Paris you can look at www.tgv-europe.ch/en/… (it would be the train coming from Zurich you would take). There are really cheap offers which get published three months prior departure and which selll out fast.

If you experience either Mt. Pilatus, Mt. Rigi or Engelberg you will get the similiar feeling of exhiliration as on the Jungfrau. Check out the Lucerne tours section to give you some options on guided and or self-guided.

Hi Shahmalaz10 and wellcome on the forum

You better open your own post for your questions as then they do not get lost.

For apartments see …myswitzerland.com/holiday-rentals/Luzern

Jungfraujoch is not in the Lucerne area. It would be too far away from Lucerne.

For more information about the Lucerne area see www.luzern.com and the Top Questions about Lucerne (TA Lucerne forum).

Happy planning and please open your own post for more questions.
