I will be staying in Geneva for a few days and then plan on making my next stop Lauterbrunnen. I have the Eurorail pass and can hop on and off as many trains as I'd like in one day, free of charge. So while leaving Geneva, I wanted to make a day trip to the Geneva lake area/surrounding areas before I arrive to Lauterbrunnen. I have a few sites/towns that I wanted to see, but I am not sure that I would have time to fit all of them in:
- Chillon Castle, Broc Cailler Chocolate Factory, Gruyeres Cheese Factory, Town of Gruyeres/Castle, Town of Montreux, Vevey and Lavaux wineries
I know this is probably way too much to do in one day, but I wanted to know which ones would be possible, which may be best to cut out and what the most time efficient route would be to see as many of these places as possible. I am not sure if I would be able to visit the wineries in the winter, so I do not know if that is worth it or not. My top three would be to see the chocolate and cheese factories, as well as Chillon castle, but I want to squeeze in the other towns and attractions as possible. I plan on starting my day very early and would take a train to Lauterbrunnen in the evening probably after dinner. What would be the best route/itinerary to see as many of these places as possible?
Hope that you can help! Thanks!
