From PARIS to the BERNER OBERLAND in June...HELP! Paris newbies!

Jump to last reply

Hello, lovers of Paris and the Swiss Alps! I've just begun to plan our 1st exciting trip to Paris for my husband and I, for June. We've never been to Paris. But we love the Berner Oberland area in the Swiss Alps, especially in late June when the flowers are in bloom in the Alps. We'll fly from California (San Diego or LA), and will have 2 or 3 weeks for the trip.

If you have been to both France and Switzerland, please advise me, and feel free to be subjective. I love hearing the reasons for different suggestions!

My husband and I are in our 50's, and have traveled to Europe many times, but have never seen Paris, nor anything in France! I wear custom orthotics, and I have to rest my feet at intervals when walking, and therefore this will slow down our itinerary, as I can't overdo the walking in 1 day. Sometimes city walking on hard pavements is actually tougher on my feet than nature walks.

I'm at the beginning of my research, and I see 3 choices so far:

Choice #1: Paris
Spend the whole trip in Paris.
Pros: We'll see a lot of Paris!
Cons: City walking tends to wear out my feet faster than countryside walks.

Choice #2: Paris & the French Countryside (Provence?)
Pros: We'll see Paris and some of the French countryside.
Cons: Is the French countryside as appealing as the Swiss Alps?

Choice #3: Paris & the Berner Oberland in the Swiss Alps.
Pros: We'll see Paris, and also have nature walks up in the Swiss Alps (Berner Oberland)
Cons: It's more complicated to visit 2 countries.

QUESTION: What's the best way to get from Paris to the Berner Oberland in the Swiss Alps? I think I read there's a direct train from Paris to Bern, Switzerland? I love trains. I hate flying. In the Berner Oberland, we would stay in Murren for sure, and possibly have a few nights in Interlaken.

What should I choose? I just bought a pile of guidebooks, for Paris, France, and 1 for Switzerland! I'm excited! >:D<

Who are we? I'm a dreamer and a writer, and I love delicious food made from fresh, local ingredients, that is unique to a region...and wine...and inspiring scenery, and nature walks, and culture, and meeting people. My husband is a biologist, and he loves travel, science museums, scenery, nature, discovering local foods, meeting people. We both enjoy art and history as well.
