Hello from Chicago USA,
My wife and daughter (age 12) and myself have a trip to Europe planned for this April 15 - 29th. We begin with our arrival in Zurich on Sunday April 15th. We have until Friday in Switzerland at which time we need to head South to visit with friends near Monaco.
I would like the forums help in determining how much (and how little) to do while we are in Switzerland. Here are our ideas based on reading what you have on this great website:
1) Stay in Zurich overnight at a nice hotel in or near the alte Stadt. This is to relax from our flight and get on the timezone by walking, eating, and sleeping.
2) Take a scenic train to a nice small town or city where we can stay overnight Mon/Tuesday. While there we would like to walk, see sights, get outside, eat, eat, and drink some wine (not my daughter). Places that look nice: Interlaken, Chur, St. Moritz ...
3) Do the same thing (scenic train to a different small village) on Weds morning, stay until Friday at which time we will head South via train or airplane.
So I am asking for ideas on the towns to visit, which trains to take, and also is this a good way to spend our 5 days or would you suggest other ideas? We do not want to ski (well my wife and daughter at least) but rather explore the country, people, and food.
Very many thanks in advance.
