Leaving for Bern in just over 2 weeks!

Jump to last reply

Down to the nitty gritty (train/bus schedules, museum and castle opening hours, current exhibits,etc)!

I have rented an apartment in Altstadt Bern for 8 nights.
1) * Arrive Sunday early via Zurich. Transfer to Bern, find apt, orient to area,
small grocery shop, climb Muenster, maybe re-visit the 'new' Bear Pits. Dinner and
crash.
2) Monday?- Stay local- Tram to Gurten/hike back down, ipod audioguide or just
meander (I have visited Bern twice previously on daytrips). Possibly, travel in evening to Luzern Fall Festival (had fun there last year)!
3) Tues? Solothurn and Schloss Waldegg
4) Wed? Stockhorn hike
5) Thurs? Bern morning markets/Paul Klee museum/browse arcaded shops. Possibly, evening travel to Luzern Maas (if not already there) OR Affoltern Cheesemaking (realizing they close at 6:30 PM)
6) Friday - ?Fribourg
7) *Saturday - Alpabfahrt Lenk im Simmental
8) * Sunday - Murtensee roundtrip cruise +/- evening Luzern Maas if not already there
9) Depart Switzerland

Monday thru Friday are interchangeable days (but not targeted activity), depending upon weather and fatigue, but Saturday and Sunday events are ONLY available on those days...

Anyone 'on the ground' in Sw. foresee any problems/complications?
Thanks for the help in putting this itinerary together-
Trip can't get here soon enough!
