First time in Switzerland - only 5 days in May!

Jump to last reply

Despite reading similar posts, my wife and I are looking for specific advice how to best maximize a short, 5-day trip to Switzerland. We are leaving small children at home and can't stay longer.

We have dreamed of visiting the Swis Alps, but with so much to see in so little time, we want ot make sure we see the "best of the best", the "can't miss", the "once in a lifetime"!

We are flexible to arrive/depart from Geneva or Zurich, but are looking to keep excess travel to a minimum so we can get more accomplished on the ground.

Also - we will staying over a Sabbath during which time we don't travel. We are looking for suggestions for somewhere beautfiul to stay for a day where we can walk and explore the nearby beauty. (we came across Puente en Kandersteg online but do not know much about it).

Any and all input and insights are most welcome!
