Hi All! I am so excited to be visiting Switzerland for the first time in early May. I'm flying into Zurich (from NY) From there I'm flying to Salzburg and basing myself there for 5 days. After that I am taking the train back to Zurich and finishing up my trip in Zurich for 3 days. My plan is to take days trips, by rail, from Zurich to Colmar, Strasbourgh and the Bernese Oberland. From what I've read, people advocate for just taking a train to the Oberland as opposed to going on a group tour. I am a solo traveler and I am comfortable traveling alone but I'm also unsure about how involved it will be to get there from Zurich.Do you suggest just doing point to point rail travel or should I buy a pass? Thank you for all of your help and suggestions!
