Alps - Which country to choose?

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to plan a European trip next year that includes the Alps. I would be traveling with my husband and we would have 10-12 nights. We enjoy hiking (not strenuous), wildlife viewing, dining and visiting 'REAL' cities where we can enjoy some of the culture of the location. We generally prefer B&B's or small inns over large hotels and resorts. Our trip would be either mid-May or mid-September, although I think we'd prefer the fall.

Hubby requested the Alps, but now I need to determine which location we should choose. I've been to Italy (w/o DH), but not the northern part. Neither of us have been to Austria, Switzerland or Germany. We would be open to two countries with the Alps as the main focus, or one country with part Alps and part other cities.

For those of you that have visited the Alps in multiple countries, which country is your favorite and why?
