We have only 3 days to see the sites in Switzerland. Top of our list is to visit Kallnach where my fathers ancestors came from. We are Disembarking a cruise in Basel and have a hotel in Bern booked for 3 days. Any suggestions to make the most of 3 days in the area. Wish we had more time. Overwhelming to decide with all the choices! We will be using trains. Do we stop in Kallnach on way from boat? Although we will have all our luggage.

Hi Janbad,

How far are you wanting (or not wanting) to travel from Bern?
What boat in Kallnach are you referring to?

Hi Lucas,

We are getting off a cruise in Basel in the morning.

As long as we can travel back and forth to Bern anything is good. We are a family group of over 50’s and our 80 yr old active Mom so see the sights but nothing terribly strenuous.

Hi Janbad,

Did you read through the links I posted? Did you have any questions about those options? If you'd like to go up into the mountains, I'd look at some near Lucerne: https://www.myswissalp s.com/lucerne/activiti es

Hi Lucas,

I’ve shared the sight with our family and we will research our choices. We have decided to make final decisions during our cruise.

As mentioned prior. Our ancestors came from Kallnach. Do you have any suggestions while we stop there? I understand it is quite small. Any hidden gems in the area that you know of?

Thank you again!

Janice

No, I've never been there and yes it is very small. :) But there is a very small zoo there! https://www.johnsklein efarm.ch/

The nearby towns of Solothurn, Biel and Neuchâtel all are quite nice to check out.
