Very excited for our trip to Switzerland the first 3.5 weeks in June. Our itinerary is first night in Zurich, 3 nights in Lucerne, 6 nights Lauterbrunnen (as our base), then off to Salzburg, Austria for 3 nights, Nuremberg 1 night, Rothenburg ob der Taube 2 nights then back to Switzerland to Brienz for 5 nights. What would suggestions be in Lauterbrunnen and Brienz for us to do? Also has anyone done the cliff walk at Mount Titlis? and if so what location is closest for that? What location is closest to go to Zermatt? I know we put Austria in the middle which may have been a mistake but what's done is done! LOL We absolutely love reading the forum! Jenn and Mike.

Hi Jenn and Mike and welcome to MySwissAlps!

Are you both Canadian and a Canucks fan? I was living in Vancouver before moving to Switzerland.

Please check out our information pages on Lauterbrunnen and Brienz for details on what to do in those towns and areas. I haven't spent time in those areas yet so I can give any personal opinions on what to do there. However there is plenty of great hiking options in Lauterbrunnen as well as awesome trips that I've read about to Jungfraujoch and Schilthorn (both of which I need to do!).

One cool panorama train ride I have experienced is the Golden Pass train from Luzern or Interlaken to Montreux - this is possible as a day trip and was quite enjoyable as is Montreux.

What do you mean by "what location is closest to go to Zermatt"? Brienz or Lauterbrunnen? Both towns are about the same travelling time.

As for Mt. Titlis, neither town is particularly close....both taking about 3 to 4 hours by train (one-way).
You may want to stick to just seeing Jungfraujoch and Schilthorn (and perhaps Schynige Platte?) from your base towns. But it is possible to go to Titlis if you want (long day!)

I hope that gets you started, let us know if you have more questions!
