Help planning itinerary for Swiss vacation #3?

Jump to last reply

We are flying into Zurich on the red eye from NYC on May 22, and depart on May 30. I have been to Switzerland twice, once with my wife. On our last trip there four years ago. we started in Locarno, made our way to Lucerne, then to Wengen (heaven!), and left out of Zurich. FYI, we are both 40, active, and love hiking and viewing the beautiful scenery. Neither of us is a skiier (if we go to Zermatt).

We would love to find an itinerary to cover some other parts of Switzerland that we haven't hit yet. Becaause my wife is a chocoholic, I would love to include a trip to the Nestle factory in Broc, if it made sense. FYI, we will be traveling only by train. Unfortunately, the Swiss Chocolate Train doesn't start running until June.

I was looking at some idea of heading from Zurich to Montreux (where it is not too far to Gruyeres and Broc). Then maybe heading to Zermatt, and from there to St. Moritz or somewhere similar. Then head back to Zurich. Does this idea make sense? I would welcome ideas and suggestions.
