Your trip can be done in Winter, there's just a few limitations: e.g. mount Pilatus
can only be reached by cable car, not by the funicular from Alpnachstad. The Rhinefall boats
will not be operating in December. There are Winter highlights as well though: you may want to visit one or more Christmas markets
The pages about Basel
not only list conveniently located hotels, but some attraction suggestions as well. It's hard to suggest must do's, as personal interests are very important to make a choice. In Winter, I would personally try to do some winter hiking trails. There are very easy ones as well. Local tourist agencies know exactly what's available (Mürren to Grütschalp
is recommended). Also, some towns have very interesting museums, many of which are included in the Swiss Pass
. The Swiss Transport Museum
in Lucerne is one of my favourites. Many suggestions can be found on the tourist websites of each town. E.g. zuerich.com
offers many ideas.
Does this get you started?
