Day trips from Zermatt and Lucerne

Jump to last reply

We will be in Zermatt for 5 days and Lucerne for 6 in January. Son will ski in Zermatt. We intend to buy Swiss passes and use rail and bus to see more of the country from our two bases. Need to decide where to go for our day trips. We enjoy charming towns with quaint as well as modern architecture (intrigued by the library in St. Gallen, for instance), easy walking, and good dining. An art museum (with some modern and not all ancient, religious art) every now and again would be good but not necessary

So far my research suggests that Sion and Saas Fee might be the only reasonable day trips from Zermatt. Am I overlooking anything?

The picture changes dramatically when we get to Lucerne where there seem to be a vast number of places within 2 and 1/2 hours or less for day trips. Possibilities I've been looking at include Bern (by itself or in conjunction with Murten), Neuchatel, St. Gallen, Basel and Rapperswill. Having trouble getting son and DH to be intererested in Zurich. Any other places I should be looking at? Are there some "hidden gems" I should be considering? If we wind up needing to cut back on the number of day trips, which should be at the top of the "do not cut" list?
.
Thanks for your recommendations.
