Again, thank you so much for helping us by maintaining this forum and website, it has been so helpful to plan our so expected trip to Switzerland!
A little background of our journey:
- We will stay 15 days in Switzerland, in which we will kinda follow the Grand Train Tour.
- It will start in Fribourg where we will visit that region (Montreux, Lausanne, Gruyeres), then we will go to Wilderswill where we will visit the region of the Interlaken (passing by Bern and Thun on the way there).
- From there we will go to Zermatt, and from there, we will go to Bellinzona for the Lugano region, through the Glacier express way (using normal trains), and then off to the Luzern /Zurich region
Now off to the issue:
We will have from April 25th to May 1st on this area.
We want to visit Mount Pilatus, explore a bit the Canton of Luzern / and then Zurich, and the region. We also wish to do day trips to Schaffhausen, St Gallen, maybe liechenstein, maybe Basel.
At first I was thinking about staying the 6 days in the Luzern region, but when checking the times to reach all these places, it is very far.
So we switched to maybe staying in Zurich because it is a bit more central.
Is Zurich a good place to stay? I found a deal in Bremgarten on an apartment with washing machine (we saw it is fairly expensive to wash clothes in Zurich, not a lot of laundromats), would that area be a nice one to stay?
We really would like to stay the whole 6 days in the same place to chill a bit as we are with a 4 year old and switching hotels gets very tiring, but we can also think about staying maybe 2-3 days in the luzern area and 4-3 days in Zurich area?
Could you input your expertise in this?
