Thank you for advice! I did not have the chance to read your answer during my stay in Switzerland, but now I can tell you all about my opinion!
Me and my husband, we made this trip for cultural reasons, looking for lots of snow and mountains, since we came from a country with warm and nice weather! Nevertheless, we were not looking for skiing!...
As we planned, we arrived on 26 december to Geneva and we bought the SWISS SAVER PASS that costs us 652 CHF for 8 days around the country.
We first went to Basel and Berne (27 december - all day); than Montreux and the Castle of Chillon + Lausanne (28 december - all day); we went to a french village called Annecy (29 december - all day); we went to Luzerne (30 december) an we arrived in Interlaken. We began by visiting Grindelwald in the morning and Lauterbrunnen in the afternoon (31 december). And in the 1st january we visited the SCHILTHORN and finally Murren.
If I knew what I know now, I woul have stayed the entire week (7 nights) in Interlaken, since it is indeed a beautiful city and near the most beautiful cities I visited.
The surrounding landscapes left me breathless!!!
I loved Annecy (in France) and Luzerne! To me they were the two most beautiful cities! People should spend a whole day there! In Interlaken tourists can reach easily any part of switzerland by train and the landscapes are allways beautiful - the snow capped mountains, lakes, picturesque houses, kind people!...
Schilthorn was a magnificent way to start the year! These are the places I enjoyed the most and that I recommend!...
