December trip to Germany & Switzerland - Ingo are you out there?

Jump to last reply

Due to other commitments, we're just now getting around to nailing down our December trip to Germany and Switzerland.

We're traveling from Australia, and will fly in/out of Zurich, arriving on December 15, departing Jan 4.

Taking the advice of Fodorites on an earlier thread, we've decided to make our first stop Freiburg-Breisgau in Germany. I absolutely must have a big dose of German Christmas cheer and Freiburg makes complete sense as it's less than a two hour train ride from Zurich, and we'll be seriously hammered after flying from Perth, Australia.

We plan to head to Scuol, Switzerland on Dec 20 and stay for seven nights, inclusive of Christmas.

The new dilemma is where to go afterwards. I'd originally planned on Zuoz or Sils Maria, but finding an apartment is proving almost impossible the week after Christmas (not to mention seriously expensive).

So on to Plan B - where to go that won't be affected by the ski season? We're not skiers, but do enjoy hiking, so we'd prefer someplace with relatively easy access to some trails (not necessarily mountains, although we love mountains!)

We're not city people, so would prefer a smallish city. We'd prefer an apartment and can commit to a full week, Saturday-Saturday. Our last night will be spent in Zurich, so it need not be particularly close to the airport, as we'll have a full day to get to Zurich the day prior to our departure.

Locarno and Lugano have come up and I've begun my research, but I'm hoping Ingo and others might have some suggestions we've not considered.
