My family live in Norfolk and have never seen the mountains. We have therefore we have booked 15 days from the 27th July for a rail trip around the mountains.
We have booked a flight from UK to Milan on the 27th and plan and overnight stay in Milan city centre first. We then plan to go to Lugano for one night for an Italian Lakes experience.
On the 3oth to the 3rd of August we on plan on hitting the Alps, but let me go through my dilemma at the end.
We plan to go to Alpamare water park near Zurich on the 3rd and stay over for 1 or 2 days. Next step is the Rheinfalls / Stein am Rhein / Schaffhausen for maybe 2 days.
The final step on 7th of August is to travel to Triberg then onto Strasbourg then back to UK.
My main dilemma was that we planned to go to the Alps and stay over in Brig/Bettermelp area for a few days then travel on Glacier Express to Chur then to the Alpamare but since joining this webforum my mind is turning to go to Lauterbrunnen area. Especially since my children are 8 and 11 and from reading this area might be better for them?
I know it will ultimately be my choice but any advise is greatly received, especially in which area is recommended.
