Itinerary for 7noghts Trip to SwitzerlandHi Everyone,
I am planning a trip to switzerland with my wife. I am currently living in Brno, Czech Republic. I am finding it real hard for the first time to plan a trip as there are so many interesting places and i just cant make up my mind on which one's to drop and which one;s to stick with.
So here is the outline of my plan SO FAR:
30th June, 2012:
Leave early morning from brno by car and reach Zurich in the afternoon
While in Zurich, visit Rhine water falls, roam around the city...take a walking tour of the city...
1st July, 2012:
Mt. Pilatus & Alpnachstad (golden roundtrip with cruise on lake luzern and glass factory)
2nd July, 2012:
Day trip to Bern (is it a whole day deal or i could cover something else on my way)
3rd July, 2012:
Zermatt and Glacier Express
4th July, 2012:
Mt. Rigi OR Stanserhorn OR Mt. Titlus
5th July, 2012:
Spend in Luzern - traffic museum (www.verkehrshaus.ch), the old town and the Glacier Garden (www.gletschergarten.ch)
6th July, 2012:
Go to Brunnen, see the city and the swiss knife museum
7th July, 2012:
Spend the day there and go to Innsbruck
8th July, 2012:
Visit the Swarovski museum and leave for brno in the afternoon
Not sure how much of it is possible, as its my first time to Switzerland and not sure if i will be able to do all of it as i have planned.
Any suggestions will be highly appreciated to finalize my trip.

I Suisse and think you can skip Mt. Rigi OR Stanserhorn OR Mt. Titlus, especially after having seen Zermatt/Glacier Express and Pilatus I think it doesn't differ very much. But may be thats only because I am very used to the alps as a suisse :-)
I suggest to take a cruise on Vierwaldstättersee

I wonder what makes so many people think the Rhine falls are in Zürich - they aren't, as any map reveals. With just a few hours in the city you have no time for a side trip to Schaffhausen. You won't have much time for Zürich city either, so I wonder if the detour is worth it at all. The drive from Brno to Switzerland will consume most of the day.
