My Swiss Apls
My name is Austin and my wife and I are visiting Swiss for the first time this July. We are entirely open to suggestions and are really in need of help on what is the best suggested itinerary. A brief synopsis: we land in Zurich July 13 am and are planning on leaving for France on July 20th am in route to Paris. As such we would be moving East to West. Our initial thoughts were to spend one night in Zurich, 2 nights in Lucerne, 2 nights in Interlaken, and 2 nights in Geneva. Does this make sense or would it be better to have ONE base city (Lucerne or Interlaken or Thun) prior to traveling to Geneva? Also, which would you recommend: Geneva or Lausanne? We would like a decent mix of scenic train travel, hiking, and cultural elements. We realize the Golden pass would be a good option and a Swiss Pass is Probably needed. Lastly, we have mostly been looking at AirBNB places, any popular suggestions?
Like I said we are open minded, and would really love so help as we are newbies to this part of Europe. Thanks. Austin
