I'm trying to finalise our trip (2 adults, 1 dog) for June. This site is fab and has been so informative but I'm looking for personal experiences/opinions on this one.
We fly into Zurich on the 11th June and stay with a friend until the 14th. We will visit Rhine Falls, Appenzel, St Galllen etc with her. On the 14th we will drive to Morzine (France) for a week to visit family. The itinerary for Switzerland after the 20th looks something like this:
20th - Return car to Montreux then either stay in Montreux or take an afternoon train to Zermatt
21st - Montreux or Zermatt
22nd - Montreux or Zermatt
23rd - Zermatt to Wengen - afternoon hike in/around Wengen
24th - Wengen - hiking/mountain excursions etc
25th - Wengen - hiking/mountain excursions etc
26th - Wengen - hiking (I know which hikes i'd like to do but if anyone has any personal favourites i'd love to hear about them)
27th - Wengen to Luzern - afternoon in luzern
28th - Piatus & Luzern then train to overnight in an airport hotel (want to stay close as I don't want a long journey to the airport before a long flight)
29th - Depart from Zurich
Do you think we should stay in Montreux or should we head to Zermatt? Is it worth going for just a few days? As mentioned we will have a dog with us so i'm looking for more outdoor activities rather than museums, castles etc. A few of the walks around the small towns of Montreux & Vevey look lovely and i'm thinking it might be a nice contrast from the mountains.
