Hi to all the experts/advisers,
My husband and I, at mid 50's, are flying in to Zurich on 16/5/2017 early morning. Currently planning to spend 10 nights in Switzerland all in before leaving for Munich. We are not skiers but lovers of scenic sightseeing, easy hikers, and good food. Would love to hear your advice or any honest personal opinions on our tentative itinerary as below:
1) Arrival 16/5/2017 : Zurich Airport. Direct to St Moritz for 2 nights stay. Train info and luggage carrying advice needed please. Not sure about the train from Chur to St Moritz.
2)18/5 : Glacier Express from St Moritz to Zermatt. 2 nights in Zermatt. Can I buy the ticket now and make seats reservation? Zermatt sightseeing info please.
3) 20/5: Zermatt to either Wengen or Interlaken? Planning for 4 nights stay. Please advice if these towns ( including Grindelwald, Muerren) are still quiet? Heard some hotels and restaurants are closed in May. So we concern if it is the right time or not to stay there. Sightseeing: Jungfraujoch, Lauterbrunnen, Grindelwald....would you recommend to include Montreux too? Train info please and sightseeing, food, hotels recommendations are welcome as still working on them.
4) 24/5 -26/5 Luzern. Sightseeing, hotel and food recommendations are welcome as we are still working on it.
Further questions: Would we miss a lot of things if we delete St Moritz, stay in Chur just for a night and then head off to Zermatt the next morning? Thought it might save us one more day for Berner Oberland or Luzern if needed.
hope to hear from you soon, thank you.
