Folks, my wife and I are making a 2 days (theoretically 2.5 days) stop over in Switzerland on October 1-4. We are flying in Geneva (October 1st evening) and fly out from Basel (October 4th evening). Our main interest are in (1) Natural scenic places, (2) Alpine experience, (3) Old town sight-seeing.
I tried to steal some ideas from few recent posts, but still gaps and doubts are there. We will be travelling around by trains/buses or cable cars, wherever necessary. Lauterbrunnen can be base for all 3 nights or I can split, if necessary.
2nd October: Lauterbrunnen - Grutchalp - Murren - Schilthorn cable car station - Birg - Schilthorn. While coming back - Schilthorn - Birg - Trümmelbach Fall - Lauterbrunnen
3rd October: 4th October: Lauterbrunnen to Lake Thun - Bern. After giving couple of hours, we have to reach Mulhouse/Basel (Airport) by 5 PM.
What should we see on second day ? We are ok to take little longer train, if necessary. Should we prefer to see some beautiful Medieval town/village or any other scenic place ? Earlier, I thought of seeing other side of Lauterbrunnen (Wengen, Kleine Scheidegg side), but would it not be kind of same scenery as Murren side ? Or should I think of Lucern going via Lake Brienz ? Or any car day trip or train trip ? Or any other advice ?
