Hi all,

we are arriving in Switzerland on June 13th , heading straight to Lucerne, (arrive by 3) and plan on doing whatever sightseeing we can that afternoon/evening.

Day 2 Mt Pilates or Rigi

Day 3. Finish up anything in Lucerne we want to see before heading to Wengen via a stopover in Interlaken to look around

Day 4. Wengen many choices!! Ideas include The most recommended I have been reading about (Mt First /flyer/trotti bikes/Shilthorn/Lauterbrunnen, hiking Mannlichen/Kleine Scheidegg/Bachalpsee etc..)

Day 5. Wengen area...see list above!

Day 6

Day 7

Day 8 return to Zurich in early morning if we didn’t return the night before. -Day trip to Stein am Rhein, Rhein Falls, Konstantz.

day 9. Fly home.

We have no lodging reservations for day 6 and 7. Options I have thought of include :

moving to Berne Day 6 with a trip to Broc/gruyere day 7 then return to Zurich that night or next a.m. ,

Berne Basel visits as a rolling day trip on day 6 ending in Zurich...but then I need other suggestions for day trip ( day 7) from Zurich as we want to get out of the city.

Are there other suggestions for places or options I haven’t thought of? We like walking and wandering more than museums, unless there is something very special to see.

We are running really late on time to make these decisions since we have no lodging for those days yet so I appreciate any and all suggestions! Thanks so much!

Hi Drsjw,

For days 6 and 7 I'd look at staying in Montreux to see the French side of things. Lots of things to see and do in the area (https://www.myswissalp ies) and you can take the Golden Pass route from Interlaken to Montreux. https://www.myswissalp

I was never too excited by Basel but Bern is a nice idea - perhaps stop there for the afternoon on your way from Montreux to Zurich?

Thanks Lucas. My preference was also Montreux, I just hope we can find lodging this close to our trip!
