If you had a week in Switzerland...

Jump to last reply

I know this is a super vague topic, but I'd like to hear your thoughts on what you'd do if you had a week's vacation to spend in Switzerland.

We have a week, and really NO agenda whatsoever, which makes planning hard. This is all I know:
1. Arrive from Salzburg late at night (into where? Doesn't matter.)
2. Leave from Lausanne to Lyon in AM 7 days later.
3. Will have a Swiss pass, 2 carry-ons, and no car with us.

Priorities of experiences:
1. Eat raclette and fondue.
2. "Typical" Swiss experience - Heidi-like, chalets, cowbells... not to stereotype the Swiss, but this is just the type of thing we like to see!
3. Railways - at least 1 of the tourist Scenic Railways, and then maybe 1 other, or just a regular train ride that has nice views
4. At least 1 mountain experience. We like to hike and don't mind walking a lot.
5. If possible, experience all 3 (or 4) language regions of Switzerland, but if we need to leave 1 out, we think it would the the Italian (sorry!)

If you had a week with these priorities in mind, what would YOU do? OR, if you had a week in Switzerland, how did you spend your time/vacation?

Thanks in advance.
