Critique my trip to Switzerland

Jump to last reply

This will be our fifth trip to Europe, but first to Switzerland, Austria and Munich.

We are a family of 5 with three teenagers and my cousin, Mitch. The primary purpose of the trip is a week-long leadership for the three teenagers just outside of Geneva in Leysin.

I'd love to get some feedback on this (initial) itinerary because we simply haven't been to this area before and I'm sure that we are overlooking many things. We plan on using a rental van, unless you have a better suggestion considering the fact that we have a lot of luggage (oh, the lady's shoes!!!) with us.

So, here's my proposed itinerary, be kind......

July 10th - Arrive in Geneva and drop off kids at camp in Leysin, then drive to Jungfrau region (still need a base city).
-Four nights in Jungfrau (Grindelwald??)
-Three nights Montreux or Luzern (somewhere different than Jungfrau)
-Pick up teenagers and drive to Appenzell for one night (visiting village along the way)
-Drive to Kitzbuhel for one night
-Drive to Munich for four nights, booking a private tour guide to Bavaria and Neuschweinstein Castle for a full day.
Flight home to LAX from Munich

This is a very preliminary plan and what I'm really hoping for is alternative suggestions on where to stay, other means of travels, side trips, etc.

About us:
40-ish years old, love outdoors, active, very social, like adventure of the unknown (somewhat)
FOODIES!!!
My cousin loves some nightlife
Budget not too much of a concern
Open to wild changes in itinerary if it sounds fun

Thanks in advance for ripping my plan apart and then reassembling.

Matt
