We are planning to visit Switzerland, arriving Geneva on 18 May, departing same on 27 May. After browsing through this site, we have a pretty good idea of what we would like to do and see. But are not sure if we can fit a ride on Bernina Express in, without spending a lot of time on trains. Tentative itinerary:
18 May - flight arrives Geneva Airport around 8:00am,, travel to Wengen (would we have time to visit old town in Bern on the way?)
19 May - Wengen, Mürren, Lauterbrunnen, Grindelwald area (stay Wengen)
20 May - same area (weather dependent activities, stay Wengen)
21 May - ? travel towards Chur, stay Chur?
22 May - Bernina Express, Chur to Tirano, BEX bus to Lugano? We are interested in the lakes area and possibly Italy
23 May - ??
24 May - Zermatt and area, stay Zermatt
25 May - Zermatt and area, stay Zermatt
26 May - back to Montreux, Chillon Castle, stay Lausanne or Geneva?
27 May - flight departs Geneva 9:50am
We are from a rural area in Wisconsin, USA, and mostly interested in nature, local culture and relaxation. We are hoping for a few pointers on how we could make the BEX work. But open to other options and suggestions.
Thanks for all the great info on this site!
