I have been working so hard to bring you today’s post on traveling to Switzerland with kids today! I decided to break down our most recent trip into two blog posts, each one focusing on 1 country. I didn’t want the content to be too overwhelming. I also attached this amazing PDF magazine that shows you all the different places we ate at, things we did, and how I packed (with my favorite essentials). Everything is within the PDF Magazine, you can click below to pull it up in a new window or simply browse it here right on my blog!

TRAVEL | Switzerland with Kids, How Much it Cost & Our Itinerary

I had so many requests for me to put together our entire itinerary and break down the cost of our trip so I did that for you in today’s post. You can easily click on the itinerary image below to print it out for yourself or just click here to print!
TRIP COST BREAKDOWN
As for trip cost, you can imagine, this is something you will probably need to save for. Especially if you plan to stay >10 days! You can always reduce the cost by staying a few days less than we did. Also, the last hotel we stopped at was comped for us but very expensive, so keep that in mind when you see the breakdown! 🙂 We also went for 5 seats so that Miles would be comfortable on the long flight. If you don’t have three kids, then you save money there too!
Flights x 5 seats $3,250 (you can get really good prices if you search early and check frequently)
Rental Car x 15 days (we got their largest vehicle since we needed to fit three seats across, insurance and 2 car seats included) $1100
Airbnb in Wengen x 4 nights $1320 (this place has four bedrooms and can fit a lot of people)
Train rides out of Wengen/cable car rides in Switzerland $100 (kids are always free 6 and under and I had a swiss rail pass so I was comped. We only had to pay for my husband)
Money allotment for eating in Switzerland (we ate breakfast every morning in our airbnb): $500
Moar Gut Resort x 5 nights (all inclusive) $3,275 (rates can very much vary depending on room. Can be much less) This was comped for us.
ebike rental (regular bikes and buggy are free) $75
Gas for rental car $150
Airbnb in Salzburg x 4 nights $1301 (perfect location in the city)
Money allottment for food in Salzburg: $500
Museum in Salzburg: $20 (if you plan to do a lot of transportation within the city and a lot of sights, I highly suggest the Salzburg city card!)
Widder Hotel x 1 night: $1,150 (this was comped for us)
(This can be significantly different if you switched up accommodations or got cheaper flights (or need less than 5 seats)
Now, I get it. Not everyone is going to want to save that much money to take a 2 week trip with their family but THIS is a huge priority for us as a family. It was an unforgettable trip that I think about daily and the kids bring up all the time. We made so many memories there that I will never forget and that’s what it’s all about. Discovering new cultures, making memories and breaking free from our normal routine. If you do decide to go on a similar trip, I would absolutely LOVE to hear about it!
