Base village for hiking in switzerland-- Bettmeralp? Pontresina?

Jump to last reply

We want to spend 5 days hiking in switzerland between June 10th and 25th and are looking for a base village. we are in our late fifties and good walkers.

We do need to have cable cars or gondolas for going DOWNHILL to save our knees!

Wengen/Murren is one of our favorite hiking places. we love the scenery, grassy meadows and cows and easy access to a variety of walks and no cars. We do not need nightlife or glitz. we don't want a busy commercial home base or extremely high altitude.

Any suggestions of where to stay? what towns?
we'd like a hotel or pension with half board.

wld Pontresina/Sils or Bettmeralp be good choices?

we were in Zermatt years ago and do not remember many hikes below the tree line. we did the main sights- Gornergrat, etc.
