Hi,
I am planning to visit Switzerland in Jan for 2 days i.e 16th and 17th. 2 days is a short time but I want to know how to get the best of it.This will be my first time in Switzerland.Can some please help me with the must see places as I am confused.I am travelling from Hanover and am interested in the scenic beauty i.e snow clad mountains,small villages etc.I have heard staying in Lucerne is a good idea and also should visit Jungfrajoch,other places being Lugano,Locarno, Gandria and Ascona. But I cant figure out where to stay and what to visit.

Thanks in advance for your response.

Hi Abhinav,

With such limited time available, I would recommend to pick one base town. The latter four you mentioned are more interesting in Spring I think. Lucerne would indeed be a good base. It's a beautiful town and there are plenty of excursions you can do from there. If you're interested in visiting the Jungfraujoch (which is indeed impressive), I would suggest to stay in a small town near Interlaken (e.g. Lauterbrunnen, Wilderswil, Grindelwald, Mürren, Wengen). Otherwise you would be spending too much time traveling there from Lucerne. It would be good to look into the Swiss Card or Swiss Half Fare Card. Hotels can be found here. Traveling times can be found in the timetable.

I hope this gets you started.
