Hi Khadija9r, welcome to MySwissAlps!

Given the mobility issues it's probably best to stay in places that are beautiful themselves, so little or no trips required to see something nice. Lucerne has a wonderful old town center, and you may like a boat trip from there. Interlaken is not the best place as it's not really scenic. But nearby Wengen and Grindelwald are fairly easy to reach and offer wonderful scenery. Please read more here:
