SWITZERLAND - See, Look, Shop, Experience
After spending 4 days in Paris, we took a high speed TGV Lyria train for 4 hours to reach Zurich. And here, we stayed at EasyHotel Zurich for 3 days 2 nights and our main agenda was to visit Mount Titlis. We signed up six months ago through Viator for a day tour group called Best of Switzerland. It cost S$220 per pax for this day tour which is inclusive of everything such as transport and tickets, except for lunch.
Following is the itinerary of the day tour:
0830 Gather at Sihlquai Bus Terminal
1000 Walking tour around Lucerne’s major landmarks which includes the Lion Monument, Chapel
Bridge and Town Hall. Lunch at Lucerne at own expense.
1330 Reached Mount Titlis mountain resort (given 2 1/2 hours to explore, free and easy)
1600 Gather at mountain resort meeting point
1830 Sihlquai Bus Terminal. End of day tour trip.

Highlights of Mount Titlis:
1. Titlis Cliff Walk: Breathtaking walk along a suspension bridge made up of steel cables
2. Titlis Rotair: A revolving gondola which bring you up the mountain with 360 degree scenery
3. Glacier Cave: It is a 150 metres walkway ice tunnel with blue lighting. The tunnel is extremely
cooling and leads you to another area of the mountain.
4. Ice Flyer: The ice flyer chair will transport you to the snow park with magnificent view of the
5. Glacier Park: We had absolute fun sliding down the snow slope with rubber tires and slides
We had complete fun at Mount Titlis especially at the Glacier park where we were like young
children sliding down the snow with different sliding equipment over and over again. The only
regret is we spend too little time of the Mount Titlis and wasted too much time touring Lucerne.
