Flying in and out of Zurich - stay there the entire time?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be going to Switzerland from June 9-19 2014. The best flight prices are flying in and out of Zurich. This will be our first time visiting Switzerland and I was wondering if we should just stay based in Zurich or venture out for a few days to another town?

We are interested in museums, churches, eating, wine and beer tasting and light hiking. We don't ski but would love to venture up to a mountain top to see the views and whatever else the top may hold. Should we just take day trips to other towns or actually pick up and move for a few days?

We generally like to just explore where we are without necessarily planning every minute. I know that trains run often and everywhere but would we be wasting a lot of time riding trains to and fro instead and staying overnight for a day or two and then returning to Zurich?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as hotels have not yet been booked.
