Recently, I had the opportunity of travelling to Switzerland for 3 days. When in this country you have no option but to make the most of your time. In this post, I have the itinerary for things to see in Switzerland in 3 days. Some of you might feel that this doesn’t cover up all the places.
Yes, it doesn’t because this is an itinerary for Things to see in Switzerland in 3 days, not 10 days in Switzerland. Nevertheless, go through the post and comment below the places which you would recommend to be included in here.
Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland but not it’s the capital city. Despite that fact, it receives hoards of tourists from all over the world all around the year. I landed in Zurich, Switzerland around noon and had half a day before heading up to Engelberg for the night. I decided to make good use of my time in this beautiful country and headed to see these places.
Engelberg village is around an hour’s ride from Zurich city. Engelberg is a small quaint place located in the heart of the Alpine region of Switzerland. From elegant houses to charming lanes of the village, to mountain trails extending to hundreds of kilometres, to long ski slopes all around, Engelberg has it all. Read my guide for things to do in Engelberg in a day here.
From Engelberg, it is a 30 minutes ride in a cable car and the RotAir Gondola to reach Mount Titlis. At 3020 meters above the sea level, Mount Titlis is definitely the place to hold your breath, quite literally. Beautiful panoramic views, walkways on the cliffs, snow parks, Mount Titlis has it all. Read all about things to do at Mount Titlis and the best time to it visit here.
A 40 minutes journey from Engelberg and you get transported to another beautiful world of Lucerne. Lucerne, also spelt as Luzerne is a small city in the central part of Switzerland. It is on the banks of the Lucerne Lake, along with the enchanting backdrop of the mighty Alpine mountains. I had a day to spend around this place and these are the three things you must visit in one day in Lucerne.
Rhine Falls – Europe’s Largest Waterfall
Rhine Falls with a height of 75 feet or 23 meters is the largest waterfall in Europe. As I made my way out of Switzerland and towards Germany I gave this beauty a visit. It was formed due to tectonic shifts of the earthquakes in the Ice Age.
The rock in the centre of the falls has indeed stood the test of time. You can go across the falls to that rock in a boat. You can also visit the castles on both sides of the falls by boat. Where ever you decide to go you will get sprayed by loads of water. While its the sparkling blue turquoise colour overwhelms you.
