Our family is driving from Salzburg to Interlaken area in June, spending time in and around each of those areas for several days each. Should we drive straight through in a day or overnight along the way to break up the trip? If we overnight, should it be directly on the path in Lichtenstein or a small town near St Moritz? We only want quaint, small towns - have already visited larger towns (Innsbruck, Zurich, Luzern) on previous trips.

Part of me wants to cut down on switching hotels and just base out of our 2 destinations for day trips. However, I'm sure the drive is beautiful and I don't want to feel like we are missing things b/c we have a hotel we need to get to on the other end. Wondering if the St Moritz scenery is similar enough to Interlaken area that we don't really need to add the extra 1 1/2 hours.... I am not including Zermatt b/c I have also been there previously.

Please advise. For reference, we are traveling with 3 teenagers.

Hi AmyM and welcome to MySwissAlps.com!

You can read about St. Moritz here: www.myswissalps.com/stmoritz. The bigger area is called Upper Engadine: www.myswissalps.com/upperengadine.

How many days do you have in the Jungfrau region? You can check the details about this region here: www.myswissalps.com/jungfrauregion.

I think that you can easily spend 4-5 days in the Jungfrau region (if you want to ski or try sledging), even more. Sledging is fun: www.myswissalps.com/activities/winter/snow :) And you can also try snowshoeing in the region.


Ps.: As you are coming from Austria, check this one please: www.myswissalps.com/traintickets/austria.
