10 Nights in Belgium and Switzerland--Seeking Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

I'm hoping you can help me figure out our itinerary for our summer trip. We had a wonderful time in Ireland last summer, and I I have many Fodorites to thank for their help planning our Ireland itinerary so now I'm back and hoping for more wonderful advice.

We will be flying into Brussels and out of Zurich, and we're having a difficult time figuring out how to get from one point to the other. This trip starts in the beginning of August.

These are the three options we're considering right now, but I welcome any alternatives.

ITINERARY A: Belgium, Paris, and the Berner Oberland
1: Day in Brussels, stay in Brussels
2: Brussels to Bruges, Stay in Bruges
3: Bruges to Paris, stay in Paris
4: Stay in Paris
5: Stay in Paris
6: Paris to Murren, Switzerland, stay in Murren
7: Stay in Murren
8: Stay in Murren
9: Stay in Murren
10: Murren to Lucerne, Stay in Lucerne at the Hotel des Alpes
11: Lucerne to Zurich, Flight leaves at 1:05 PM

ITINERARY B: Belgium, Amsterdam, and the Berner Oberland
1: Day in Brussels, stay in Brussels
2: Brussels to Bruges, Stay in Bruges
3: Bruges to Amsterdam, stay in Amsterdam
4: Stay in Amsterdam
5: Amsterdam to ? (Koln?)
6: ? to Murren, Switzerland, stay in Murren
7: Stay in Murren
8: Stay in Murren
9: Stay in Murren
10: Murren to Lucerne, Stay in Lucerne at the Hotel des Alpes
11: Luzern to Zurich, Flight leaves at 1:05 PM

ITINERARY C: Belgium and The Berner Oberland
1: Day in Brussels, stay in Brussels
2: Stay in Brussels
3: Brussels to Bruges, stay in Bruges
4: Stay in Bruges
5: Bruges to ? (Koln?) Stay in ?
6: ? to Murren, Switzerland, stay in Murren at Eiger Guesthouse
7: Stay in Murren
8: Stay in Murren
9: Stay in Murren
10: Murren to Lucerne, Stay in Lucerne at the Hotel des Alpes
11: Luzern to Zurich, Flight leaves at 1:05 PM

We like the idea of spending our last five nights in Switzerland, and I've already booked hotels for Murren and Lucerne, though those bookings can be canceled at any time. The reason we're starting the trip in Belgium is that I'll be presenting at a conference in Belgium, so my husband is flying out at the end of that conference.

We have both visited Amsterdam and Paris. We have not visited Belgium, Germany, or Switzerland. We plan on taking a long trip to Germany in two summers, though.

Thank you in advance for your advice.
