Bern or Lucerne?

Jump to last reply

Hello, I am intending to visit the Bernese Oberland area; particularly around Gimmelwald and the Schiltorn etc. I am limited to 4 to 5 days. I need your help in deciding whether to base myself for most of the time in Bern or Lucerne. I have heard, and read, that both are very scenic but need some advice on which would be more practical as a base, and also which is worth seeing more? I am looking for scenery and, if possible, something that symbolises the beauty of Switzerland!

Thanks in advance for any help and suggestions.
