Lucerne or Lugano in October/November

Jump to last reply

I am going with my husband during late October to early November in Switzerland. This is our first trip in Switzerland so we really want to make the right decisions on where to go. We will be flying in from Zurich and have decided to stay in Grindelwald for 5 days so we can see beauty of Bernese Oberland. We would have wanted to stay in Wengen/Murren but we have researched that the mountains shut down during that time.

After Grindelwald, we are not sure where to spend our next 5 days - in Lucerne or in Lugano. I was initially thinking Lucerne since I have read reviews and comments about that the Lake Lucerne area is really very beautiful and many recommend going to Mt. Pilatus, Rigi, Rhine Falls etc.

When I started reading about the Ticino region. It seems like an interesting place to go to as well. Daytrips to Gandria and Morcote, maybe going to Locarno and Ascona or even Valle Verzasca.

We both love beautiful and picturesque scenery and enjoy a relaxing time. If I go to Lucerne after Grindelwald, will it be too similar and we'll be better off going to the Ticino region? Or Lucerne is really a cannot-miss destination in Switzerland.

Would love to hear comments and recommendations!
