Looking for beautiful area in the Alps similar to Wengen/Murren

Jump to last reply

This is pretty much a re-post but with a clearer title and correctly tagged locations. My previous version made it sound like we only were considering the Swiss Alps. We're looking for a beautiful mountain town to visit between Paris and Salzburg, regardless of what country it's in. In the other thread Lowe/Upper Engadine were mentioned but the thought was that early June wouldn't be good there. Zermatt and Gstaad were also mentioned. I've been pondering the Dolomites but think train access would be more of a problem there??
*******************************************************************************************************
Next summer we're heading to Europe with two families. We'll have 4 children between the two families ages 13-18. In between a stay in Paris and a stay in Salzburg we'll have 2.5 days to spend in the Alps (not including travel). This portion of our itinerary occurs the first of June and is as follows:
Tuesday - last day in Paris
Wednesday - train to Alps/late afternoon and evening in Alps
Thursday - day in Alps
Friday - day in Alps
Saturday - train to Salzburg

In 2011 we were fortunate to travel with the same family (with kids) and have already spent several wonderful days in the Lauterbrunnen valley. Our hotel was in Murren. And in 1999 the same adults also spent time in the same valley while staying in Wengen. So as much as we love that area we feel it's time to try another location.

What we want is something similar to the Lauterbrunnen valley with steep, dramatic mountains all around with great train access and light hiking (and possible paragliding). We had considered going to Lucerne and hiking around Rigi...but after considerable research, and viewing pics of the area our group feels that we're looking to be deeper in the Alps vs. on the edge as Lucerne appears to be.

So I'm looking for a recommendation of another area to visit. I realize that nothing may be quite as breathtaking as Lauterbrunnen but am looking for something close. We don't mind being off the beaten path a bit (as Murren was) as long as we can get around by train. To us it almost seemed like Grindelwald was too touristy (haven't been there but have seen videos and my parents visited there). Another option that we had considered was Engelberg, which could allow for a visit to Lucerne and yet was more tucked away in the mountains.

Thank you for your input
