(It takes 45 min to reach Engelberg from Lucerne. Check your train connections on

the local SBB train website. If you are not from Switzerland and have a Swiss

Travel Pass, the train fare to Engelberg is included. A short 10-minute walk from the

Engelberg train station will bring you to Mount Titlis Cable Car station. Or if you are

on time, hop on the free shuttle bus.)

Titlis Cliff Walk - home to Europe’s highest suspension bridge. Exit the cable car and

take the lift to level 5. This brings you to the outside area where the skiing

starts, a terrace with epic views awaits and the eternal snow invites a snowball

fight. Walk towards the chairlift and you will find the entry to the pedestrian bridge

at 3041 metres above sea level which measures 91 metres.

1. Re: Swiss Paris Itenary

Day Two...

Lindt Chocolate Factory

I havent been myself, but know people who have and they highly recommend it. They had a wonderful time there.

It's a very popular attraction and so tickets do sell out Its recommended to buy them in advance online. They are timed entry tickets.

You can read about it here , in the Tripadvisor Reviews that lve linked for you below

Your Day 13 in Paris...

I've noticed that you're planning on visiting both the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre in one afternoon. From personal experience, I feel that that is just too rushed. You could easily spend hours at the Louvre alone, and there are always lineups to get in. Same thing with the Eiffel Tower, so I would not try to combine the two of those in a couple of hours in one afternoon.

As for your itinerary in general, l would post it on the Tripadvisor " Destination" Forums section....

Switzerland and France have their own DESTINATION Forums, here on Tripadvisor, along with local members and local destination Experts who give travel advice about their own cities daily...

The Experts for Switzerland and France (Paris) do not look at this Forum as a rule, so youre missing out on getting local Experts advice by not posting on the best Forums

Linking to Tripadvisor Switzerland Destination Forum

Have a great trip!

You are more than welcome!

If l may make a suggestion on your time in Paris

1. I like to do the HOHO Bus Tours on the first day or so that I arrive in a new city. I find these tours give you a very good overview of the entire city and let you see all different points of interest and neighbourhoods, so that if you find that you really like one in particular you can go back and visit it in more depth at a later day.

2. Try to visit the Montmartre area of Paris if possible. You can get a fabulous view of the city of Paris from high up on the hill if you go visit the Sacre Coeur Basilica .. One of my favourite areas of Paris, it's a don't miss in my opinion
