I am planning to go to Switzerland from Milan August 2nd week and have 5 days before flying out of Zurich. I was thinking of taking a from Milan to Brig, spending the night at Brig, spend a day at Zermatt, night at Brig, 2nd day hike Bettmeralp to Fiescheralp, and then take a train to Zurich. Any suggestions for alternative itineraries? This is my first time in Switzerland. I am also concerned about whether I will need to pack warm layers for the hikes since I was planning only on summer clothes in Italy. Traveling with 13 year old kid and husband. We typically manage easy-moderate hikes of 3-4 hours.
