We are looking at a 5-6 day trip to Switzerland. We are going in early September. We will be driving in from Lake Constance. We are currently planning to spend 3 days in the Berner Oberland. We have seen the pictures and want to do a few small hikes there and visit the Jungfraujoch, see the Lauterbrunnen Valley, Trummelbach Falls. We haven't finalized the itinerary so we are flexible.
My questions are:
1- Besides 3 days in the Berner Overland, where else should we go? As we are driving down from Lake Constance we planned to stop in Lucerne. I don't know if we should stay over night in Lucerne or not. I have been to Zurich once before and have already seen Rhine Falls so I don't need to do that again! Is it worth it to try to see the Matterhorn? Or are there other places we should go first? Should we pop over to Lugano and see Lake Como too??
2- What town should we spend overnight in as our home base in the Berner Oberland? We are driving in from Germany so we will have a car. It seems that Lauterbrunnen vs Grindelwald are the top picks for those with a car... any preference as to which one is "better" to stay at? Also, we are vegetarians (cheese and milk are okay to eat), so one with more restaurants may be better??
Thank you all for your input! Really appreciate it and looking forward to our trip!!
