Assistance choosing 2nd Switzerland destination (in addition to Geneva)

Jump to last reply

My husband is attending a conference in Geneva April 19 - 23rd, and I have decided to leave the little ones with my parents and go with him! I will probably meet him in Geneva on the 20th or 21st. We will need to leave Switzerland on the 27th. This will be his first time in Switzerland. I spent a week in Lucerne and Interlaken years ago with my sister, but am not familiar with the rest of Switzerland.

We will have three days in Geneva during the conference, where we will have evenings and parts of the days to spend in Geneva. Then, we will have three additional days to travel to another location. I am debating between Zermatt and Lucerne. Which would offer better variety in late April after Geneva? I'm leaning toward Zermatt right now, although Lucerne is attractive because we could return to Atlanta from Zurich on a nonstop flight.

We are also considering a day trip to Montreux from Geneva. My questions are:
-how many days are recommended for Zermatt?
-is the altitude in Zermatt difficult to handle for some? I will be six months pregnant, so that might be a deciding factor.
-how does Zermatt compare to Lucerne?
-travel to which destination will have a more scenic train ride

I'm a little overwhelmed, I must admit. Thanks in advance!
