'Best' mountains & dairies to visit for first time visitor to Switzerland?

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone! My family and I are planning a last minute trip to Switzerland in July, because this is so last minute we are struggling a bit to absorb all the information! We know that Switzerland is famous for its beautiful scenery and for its cheeses so we would love to know; which are the 'best' mountains and dairies to visit? We will only be there for 5 nights sadly and be based in either Lucerne or Bern.

Mountains we think possibly the most 'famous' (most tourist-y anyway!) are Jungfrau, Pilatus and Titlis. Which would you say be the best to go to for a first time trip to Switzerland?

We would also love to do something similar to the Swiss Chocolate Train that visits Gruyere and Broc however I have heard that they dairies and factory there are a bit 'tourist-y' and not very authentic? Therefore I would love to go somewhere authentic, somewhere like Bolderhof is perfect but perhaps a little closer to Lucerne or Bern?

Thank you for your help!
