I have only two days in Switzerland and will be staying in Basel. I want to spend one day exploring Basel but the next day I could take a day trip to see some lovely mountains, and I wonder if any one can recommend a good cheep day trip for me that I can do from Basel. We would like to see the real Switzerland, fresh air, mountains, maybe snow.. but I know that my not be possible as our visit is the 22 nd to 23 of October. I have also found out that a lot of tourist places are shut at that time of the year.
My ideal trip would be to go by train (cheep train – around 40 CHF each return), to a lovely mountain village or town. Go up mountain on a gondola, have a look at the lovely view, maybe a walk around a lake, then back to Basel in time for dinner. Also with a stop in a old town, with shops and coffee houses, on the way back would be great.
Also if you have any ideas on what NOT to miss in Basel, then I would love to read these too.
Thank you to anyone who can suggest anything.
