Thanks ! here's the new topic
My family (2adults with one 8 year old boy) will be visiting Oberland & Zermatt in early June period. (can u advise what kind of warm clothes to bring?)
We have read that Wengen, Lauterbrunnen & Murren is scenic... would you advise which area would be ideal to stay for our 3-day visit? and how would you suggest what to do? we have not idea... perhaps mild hiking.... (we are from the city!) So far we only have a broad plan... we are getting Eurail as we will be visit 4 european countries
Day 1 arrive from Paris (afternooon) to Interlaken OST ---> we are hoping to stay in Wengen? still wondering if thats the best place to put up... maybe do a little tour in Interlaken town first before going to Hotel?
any other ... with nice peaceful and beautiful resort ? (how do you suggest take the rail up? one way? then get a 1-day pass next day to Jungfraujoch?)
Day 2: to Jungfraujoch.... should we have time to also stop by other places that is on the way?
Day 3: to Lauterbrunnen area? the falls?? etc? - not quite sure where to start from, hard to visualise from all the reading..
Day 4: am to Zermatt (arrive abt 1pm) - what can we do? walk around in the Zermatt town?
Other than that we will move to Zermatt for only 2 nights, now the key question is:
with just 2 nights, which area should we focus on? Gornergrat only? Is Schwarsee (the lake area) worth the visit - if the scenery is different?
you see the hotel which we are booking offers only a free pass to Gonergrat, so if we visit Schwarsee, we would need to purchase another separate ticket...
Day 5: Gornergrat Day tour... also Schwarsee?? (or put it in Day 4 upon arrive to Zermatt?)
Day 6: depart am. to Zurich
Our aim to the Mountains and the scenic places is to enjoy God's wonderful creation in Swiss!! :-) We are not the "active hikers nor skiiers..."
Appreciate your kind advice and time
