You say you are going to be in Switzerland for five days, but as Rockoyster has already noted, you haven't stated the dates of your trip. Are you flying into Basel and leaving from Zurich ? I am only guessing this because those two cities are at each end of the places you have mentioned. Unless you are flying into Basel, or arriving there by train, my advice would be to skip it entirely. After all, you have stated that you are "most interested" in seeing "beautiful mountains and lakes". Five days will go quickly so choose carefully ! If I had to chose two lakes to see it would be Lake Geneva, known as the Léman in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, and Lake Lucerne, known as the Vierwaldstättersee in the German-speaking part. They are both definitely worth seeing and are not like each other. For beautiful mountains, and considering that you only have five days in all, I would suggest that you concentrate in the Bernese Oberland, often referred to as the Jungfrau region, perhaps basing yourself in Lauterbrunnen for a couple of nights, with one night in Lucerne and one in Montreux. When and where does your flight (or train) arrive ? Same question for your departure. Knowing this will make it easier for people to help.
