Hiking in Switzerland

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be hiking in Switzerland in very early September 2012 for a week before venturing back to Cinque Terre for another week. We will not be climbing the highest of altitudes but enjoy a daily climb of up to 800 meters max. 4-6 hours hiking a day.

1. What is the best airport to fly into from the US?

2. What are a few can't miss hikes, train trips, towns? We are more quaint town and country hotel people than bustling city people on vacation. We prefer trains and if needed buses to renting a car.

3. We are considering Austria as well but are focusing our early research on Switzerland.

Thank you.
